US pizza brand Little Caesars has opened its second UK outpost in Top Valley, Nottingham, as it gears up for a ‘year of growth’.

The group, which claims to be 'the third largest pizza chain in the world' based on net number of sites and has more than 4,000 locations worldwide, says it has multiple new openings planned in the UK this year.

They include two locations in London and another in Liverpool, which had all been mooted to open in 2023, but will now launch in the coming months.

“We are thrilled to announce the expansion of Little Caesars Pizza into Nottingham, our second location in the UK,” says Paula Vissing, president of global retail for Little Caesars.

“Little Caesars is synonymous with quality, convenience and affordability, and we are eager to share our delicious offerings with the vibrant community of Nottingham.”

Little Caesars, which is based in Detroit and originally launched in 1959 as a single, family-owned restaurant, opened its first UK site in Chellaston, Derby, in late 2022​.

The group previously made a play for the UK market in the mid-1980s and at its peak had about 18 sites across the country. However, the business eventually wound down its UK operation in the year 2000 having failed to gain a substantial foothold in the territory.

“The UK market holds significant importance for us, and Nottingham serves as a fantastic gateway to introduce our renowned menu,” Vissing continues.

“With a year of growth ahead, we plan to unveil multiple new sites, including a much-anticipated presence in the lively city of London. We look forward to becoming a go-to destination for pizza lovers across the UK."

The Little Caesars UK menu includes a range of large 12-inch pizzas with toppings including 'mushroom deluxe'; Italian sausage and bacon; pepperoni; and margherita.

It also features Little Caesars' 'signature' Crazy Bread - pizza dough straws coated with garlic salt, butter, and Parmesan cheese.
