The Collegeview neighborhood provides a number of conveniences for the people of Union, including some quick eateries as an alternative to Union Market or Cooper’s Corner. Local favorites include Goldenrod Pastries, The Mill and Colby Ridge Popcorn & Gifts.
This summer’s latest addition to the neighborhood is Little Caesars, which opened its doors on July 10 and happens to be less than a mile away from campus. Little Caesars can be found at 4822 Pioneers Blvd. on the corner of South 48th St. and Pioneers, in the same parking lot as Colby Ridge.
This hot-n-ready pizza place is just close enough to take a stroll for a Sunday afternoon study break and it serves quality pizza at a decent price. A pizza can cost as little as five dollars.
Little Caesars opened their first location in Garden City, Mich. in 1959 and are now located in all 50 states and 18 international markets. The company strives to give back to the communities they are a part of through outreaches like the Love Kitchen, which provides free, hot pizza to the hungry and homeless. Little Caesars has twice received the President’s Volunteer Action Award for their Love Kitchen outreach.
The newest Lincoln location shows a company-wide policy of caring for their customers and communities through the friendly smiles hungry customers will see as soon as they enter the building. The restaurant itself is small, but during the lunch hour the place isn’t crowded. People can go in and order a pizza and it will be done within a few minutes.
Some Union students and staff have already enjoyed the restaurant, “I love pizza, but the cheesy bread is my favorite thing there. Just make sure to get some marinara sauce for dipping,” said John Luckiesh, who works as a counselor in the enrollment department.
Open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Little Caesars has a wide variety of options including pizza, bread, deserts and wings. Late night pizza cravings or quick study breaks any time of day can be cured through this fast, take-out only pizza joint.
