Little Caesars Pizza will occupy one of the store fronts in the new outbuilding at Sampson Crossing, information verified by City of Clinton officials and the pizza eatery’s construction director Friday.
“We are looking forward to being a part of the community,” said Phillip Claire, director of construction for Little Caesars, in confirming that the carry-out only eatery would be opening early summer.
Construction on Little Caesars is expected to begin Tuesday, Claire said, with a four-to-six week turnaround. “We anticipate being ready to open mid-to-late June.
The pizza business will occupy the far end store of the four-store outbuilding. AT&T is expected to be one of the others coming to the still under-construction building which, city officials said was a 60×90 foot facility. Other occupants have not been announced at this time.
Although Little Caesars will not offer carry-out, they will provide customers with a full menu, including their hot and ready pepperoni pizza, their deep dish pizza and their notoriously delicious Crazy Bread, which will be offered all day long.
“Of course, we will have everything else that Little Caesars offers, including chicken wings and cold sodas,” Claire noted.
The business hours are expected to be 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Claire said the business normally employs kitchen staff, cashiers, food counter greeters and others. “I expect that for our Clinton store as well.”
With construction expected to begin on Little Caesars early next week, City Planner Lyden Williams noted that the facade work on the entire outbuilding was now complete and the glass and doors had been installed.
“I don’t know where they are on the inside,” Williams pointed out, “but for the most part the outside looks complete.”
Claire said Little Caesars officials were excited to bring their pizza eatery to Clinton and hoped customers would enjoy what the business has to offer.
“We are looking forward to our grand opening in the near future, and we are thrilled to be coming to Clinton,” the construction director said.
