Wait, Stop! I know that is not a Little Caesars in the middle of Ruston. I busted out with joy as I rode past the restaurant in shock. As a student living 19 hours away from home seeing things that remind me of home is always good but to be able to taste them remind me of home even more. Little Caesars opened Feb. 16 and “business has been decent since the beginning,” said Alvin Levi Howard, a Little Caesars employee. The new building on the block has stirred up a lot of talk from locals and students. “It is really good especially when it is cooked to order. I was shocked to see it in Grambling even tough it is big in New Orleans,” said GSU student Ganard Lewis.
“Yea they have those $5 pizzas,” senior James Moore said.
Have the Hot-N-Reid’s been selling? “Oh yea and a lot,” Alvin added. And that I can believe with no problem being that at home the line was always wrapped around the corner just to get those oh so famous $5 pizzas.
“Its all right, I really don’t eat pepperoni but I like the sausage pizzas, added sophomore and business management major Denecia Blackman from Monroe.
I remember when the Hot-N-Ready special first came out the only item was the large pepperoni pizza and now they offer sausage pizza, wings and even Hot-N-Ready combos. Music to my ears and should be to others being it’s fresh, on the spot food that taste amazing all for a low price. Although Little Caesars doesn’t deliver, I don’t believe this hinders business to much as I noticed customers were in and out while interviewing one of the employees.
Although Alvin stated that “we are not in competition.” I believe with the good deals they are offering, its kind of going to be hard for nearby restaurants not to ‘Step their game up.’ Opened from 10 a.m.-11 p.m. excluding major holidays, Little Caesars is prepared to serve you.
“And we do keep them Hot-N-Ready all day everyday,” added Alvin.
