Little Caesars coming to Neil Street

Little Caesars coming to Neil Street

A preview of Sunday's "It's Your Business" column:

 Little Caesars Pizza is expanding its local empire by adding an outpost in central Champaign.

We'll ask it again: What restaurant would you like to see in C-U? Let Tom Kacich know here

Franchisee Kent McKenzie plans to open a store at 703 S. Neil St., C, in the space formerly occupied by Quizno’s and Kaleidoscoops.

The store, projected to open in mid-August, would join Little Caesar’s locations at 1211 S. Mattis Ave., C, and 1901 S. Philo Road, U.

“It makes a triangle for us,” McKenzie said, noting that the new spot is a high-traffic location close to campus.

Like the other stores, the new Little Caesar’s will offer only carryout service. McKenzie said he expects to have 10 to 12 employees there.

In addition to the three Champaign-Urbana stores, McKenzie has two Little Caesar’s Pizzas in Bloomington.
