Little Caesars on Judge Ely officially opened last Monday. The location opened with no marketing and chose not to host a grand opening event.
“We just opened the doors and kind of let it happen,” said Justin Whitefield, a manager who moved to Abilene to help open the new location. He said that business has been good, and their busiest time are Fridays and Saturdays from 4-8pm.
Whitefield said they have had people coming in and out often, and Little Caesars is a place they stop by on their way home.
“Quick, easy dinner on the way home. Good. Cheap,” said Angela, a Little Caesars customer. “I used to drive all the way over to the location on Mockingbird. We needed one over here,” also mentioning that this new location is “almost too close for comfort.”
The Judge Ely location is a different franchise than the other locations in Abilene. Whitefield said their corporate office asked this franchise group to move into this prime location near universities and schools.
And their best seller? “Our deep dish pepperoni pizza is really popular,” said Whitefield.
To order over the phone, call 325-232-7894. Their goal, according to Whitefield, is to have your order ready by the time you arrive.
At this time, the new Judge Ely location is not offering any discounts, but Whitefield said, “We’ve got coupons going out in the mail on Nov. 6.”
