Little Caesars is committed to giving back to our veterans. In 2006, Little Caesars created the Little Caesars Veterans Program to thank veterans for their service and provide them with career opportunities when they transition to civilian life or seek a change. Since the program launched, interest has remained high in the Little Caesars Veterans Program. More than 65 veterans have collectively benefited from nearly $1.6 million in credits and discounts to help them open their Little Caesars stores. A dozen veterans have already built a second or third Little Caesars store, with plans to build more.
