Established by Little Caesars in 1985, the Love Kitchen exemplifies Little Caesars strong tradition of giving back to America’s communities. The Love Kitchen is a pizza kitchen on wheels. It travels across the continental U. S. and Canada, serving the hungry, the homeless, and the survivors of disasters, such as tornadoes in Oklahoma, hurricanes on the East Coast and on the Gulf Coast, the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001, and the 1995 bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The Love Kitchen has served more than three million people in 48 states and four Canadian provinces.
“We know that it’s important to reach out to the communities where we do business and help make a difference,” said David Scrivano, president and CEO of Little Caesar Enterprises, Inc. “As a family company, we are proud to work together with our local franchisees and company-owned stores to coordinate the vehicle, staff and food and to be there for the people who need assistance.”
The Love Kitchen has been recognized for its charitable efforts, receiving The President's Volunteer Action Award Citation from former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush. The Reagan administration also awarded the Love Kitchen a Presidential Citation for Private Sector Initiatives. Additionally, it has received a certificate of appreciation from the State of Michigan and was recognized by the Detroit City Council for its efforts in the Gulf Coast region.
Little Caesars franchise owners donate the resources necessary to make each Love Kitchen serving a success. An estimated 50,000 franchise owners and their employees have volunteered over the years to support the program in their local communities.
