Where else can you get that perfectly mediocre slice of pizza than Little Ceasars? Known for their cheap deals, having pizza ready to go at all times, and, in my opinion, the best garlic bread (aka crazy bread) known to man, I am fully on board with you wondering if there’s a Little Ceasars in London or the UK.
Hey, sidenote! If you’re traveling to the UK, whether for a short period of time or as an expat, why don’t you join my Facebook group where you can ask questions, get advice or just look at pretty pictures of this part of the world! Just click here to request to join and I’ll add you!
I mean, after all, London has Pizza Huts, Papa John’s, Dominos and more! It’s not too crazy of a question to wonder if you can find Little Ceasars Pizza in London or the UK. It’s actually the third largest pizza chain in the US.
So, here we go, the answer to the question is…
“Is there a Little Ceasar’s in the UK or England or London?”
is no. There is no Little Ceasars in the UK or London. I know, I know. Finding this out is like finding out that there is no Walmart in the UK, no Outback Steakhouse in the UK, and no Ross in the UK – aka, DEPRESSING!
But before we dig too deep into this injustice, I wanted to let you know about some of the resources I’ve put together to help visitors and expats in the UK through their journey.
It takes everything you think you know about the UK and either explains it or shows you what you’re really getting yourself into (major small talk and frequent tea breaks, woo!)
In addition to the book, you can check out some of my free resources below that talk about all things culture shock and surviving the UK, both as a visitor and as an expat.
If you’re here as a study abroad student in London, you’ll love the article on surviving the London Underground because, trust me, you will be all up in a businessman’s personal space by the time you leave (on accident, of course). You’ll also appreciate the guide to the difference in British money so you won’t look like a complete fool at the checkout.
For expats coming for an even longer period of time, the article on culture shock was specifically designed for you, and the story about my attempts to drive in the UK as an American will fill you with both fear and confidence.

- An American Girl’s Guide to Surviving the London Underground
- Understanding UK Money: Pence, Not Cents!
- Driving in England as an American: An Apology to UK Drivers
Right, now that you know everything there is to know about the UK, let’s move on to Little Ceasars!
History of Little Ceasar’s
To understand the history of Little Ceasar’s and why it’s such a loved chain in America, you should start by knowing that it opened in 1959 in its original version, which was a single pizza shop owned by a couple in Garden City, Michigan.
The chain steadily grew over the years, and today there are over 5,000 locations around the world (but sadly not in the UK).
One of the original catchphrases of Little Ceasar’s was “Pizza, pizza!” which was essentially meant to show that you could get two pizzas for the price of one pizza at a competing chain.
One of the most popular concepts throughout the years has been the ‘hot and ready’ model, which is basically just a couple of pizza types that are always ready for carry-out without you having to order ahead.
This makes it easy to simply stop by on the way home from work and pick up a few without needing the lead time in ordering.
Other countries you can also find Little Ceasars in include Mexico, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Saudia Arabia, and the Bahamas.
Equivalent to Little Ceasars in the UK
There’s nothing exactly like Little Ceasars in the UK – there is something decidedly American about wanting pizza in a hurry. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t get pizza in the UK – of course you can.
It’s just that you’re either going to want to go to a major chain like Pizza Hut that is here, or you can get carry-out pizza from more local chains like Pizza Pilgrims in London, OR you buy a frozen pizza from somewhere like Sainbury’s and make it at home – this is the most popular way to get pizza on demand.
