Pizza! Pizza! Another Little Caesars is opening in Idaho Falls
Published at | Updated at
IDAHO FALLS — It’s hot and we’re ready for some Little Caesars Pizza on the west side of Idaho Falls.
Idaho Falls Economic Development director Dana Briggs confirmed to EastIdahoNews.com that the new location will be on South Utah Avenue across the street from Walmart.
“We are really excited,” Briggs says. “Right now they’re going through the final process of getting ready and then they’ll open in April.”
The pizza restaurant shop will be next to Jamba Juice and the new Firehouse Subs in the Railway Crossing development.
Briggs says the city didn’t have anything to do with the conversation of getting an additional Little Ceasars on the west side of town. She says the private developer, who owns the land, oversees the tenants on the property.
“As they (Little Caesars) have been submitting plans and things, of course, the city reviews those,” Briggs says.
Briggs says Little Caesars is keeping their current location on 17th street, which has been open since 1989. Customers frequently find long lines around lunch and dinner time as hungry eaters purchase cheese and pepperoni pizzas for $5.
“Even when I go there personally it’s always packed,” Briggs says.
Little Caesars has been expanding in eastern Idaho. Last March, the pizza chain opened a Little Caesars Express in Rigby.
The new Idaho Falls restaurant joins other pizza options on the west side including Uncle Benny’s Pizza and Lucy’s Pizza, which will soon open in The Broadway development.
“It’s just a great new development and we look forward to having people come and particularly be customers on the West Side of town,” Briggs says.
