Little Caesars, a global family-owned pizza chain, and its independent franchisees will give 250,000 slices of pizza to healthcare workers, police, and firefighters across Canada.
The pizzas will be given to hospitals, police departments, and fire departments around the country.
“Hospital staff and first responders are working around the clock to help keep us safe and healthy, and they are true heroes,” says Dave Scrivano, president and CEO of Little Caesar Enterprises Inc. “Together with our franchisees across Canada, we want to give back directly to the communities they serve. Little Caesars is a family company and so, we want to thank all of them in the best way we know how—by delivering a wholesome meal.”
When customers use the Little Caesars app or order on LittleCaesars.ca, they can “Pie it Forward” by buying a pizza to give to their nearby hospitals, police, and fire departments at checkout. The customer-purchased pizzas will be served locally by Little Caesars franchisees during the following weeks.
Little Caesars recently announced contactless options for both delivery and carry-out through the Little Caesars app and Pizza Portal pickup.
The chain has also reinforced cleanliness and sanitization procedures, increasing the frequency of cleaning commonly touched surfaces including door handles, glass, countertops, pickup surfaces, phones, and cash registers.
