Little Caesars has raised the price of their iconic $5 pizzas. Don’t get too excited though, they’ve only raised it .55 cents. The pizza chain does state that the price may be a little higher than that if you live in Alaska, Hawaii, or California, or order through third party delivery services.
The price change comes after 20 years of being the same price. And to be honest, if this leads to the workers getting paid more, I’d happily pay even a few dollars more. Especially since they have to deal with psychos that pull guns on employees.
Chief Marketing Officer for Little Caesars Jeff Klein said: “Change is good when it comes to giving our customers more of what they love, and we’re changing our iconic HOT-N-READY Classic, adding 33% more savory, meaty pepperoni still at the country’s most affordable price.”
This isn’t the first chain to make the news lately with price increases. Dollar Tree also recently had to raise prices to more than $1.
This improvement to the HOT-N-READY Classic Pepperoni pizza is slated as a permanent menu item change. The chain also continues to use fresh, never frozen Muenster and mozzarella cheeses, vine-ripened tomatoes picked at the peak of freshness and is the only major national pizza chain to make dough fresh in-house daily.
Little Caesars plans to make the most of this, and is launching a new ad campaign reflecting the new price of the HOT-N-READY.
The iconic HOT-N-READY Pizza was named one of the top 100 fast food items sold in US history, and is known for being the nation’s best price. Little Caesars became the first national chain to regularly offer pizzas on-demand for carryout with no preordering and coined the term HOT-N-READY in 2001. Little Caesars HOT-N-READY Pizzas became available nationwide in 2004, much to the delight of busy families and hungry pizza lovers around the country. The chain continues to offer the same convenience to customers all day every day, offering pizzas with no need to call ahead, no waiting, and no limit.
