DETROIT -- Little Caesars is celebrating its 50th year in business March 8, the company announced. Michael and Marian Ilitch, founders of Little Caesars, first opened a pizza shop in Garden City, Mich., in 1959.
 
"Since Marian and I opened our first store 50 years ago, Little Caesars has remained focused on providing families with a great value, despite the ups and downs of the economy and ever-changing trends," said Michael Ilitch. "It's a formula that has worked for five decades and will work for many more."
 
Today, the Ilitches are the only actively involved founding couple of the top 150 family businesses established more than 50 years ago in America.
 
Little Caesars will mark its 50th anniversary with a celebration event at the historic Fox Theatre in Detroit, which was purchased by the Ilitches in 1987, completely restored and now serves as the corporate headquarters to Little Caesar Enterprises.
