Little Caesars opens in Ogdensburg April 17


Little Caesars will open its restaurant on State Street April 17.

Owner/operator Richard N. Jacobsen said Thursday the 637 State St. pizza restaurant will start its seven-day-a-week operation with a 10:30 a.m. opening and a closing that will be subject to experimentation. He will try both 11 p.m. and midnight, gauging customer response.

“We have to see what the community wants,” Mr. Jacobsen said.

The restaurants will employ three or four shift managers who will supervise between 13 and 15 full- and part-time employees. It will be run by Mr. Jacobsen’s son, Andrew S.

Mr. Jacobsen chose the former Stewart’s Shops convenience store because it is located on a heavily-traveled street and in the middle of residential neighborhoods. As far as he is concerned, success is virtually guaranteed.

“It’s about being centrally located,” Mr. Jacobsen said.

Mr. Jacobsen, who owns and runs with his family Little Caesars restaurants in Watertown and Evans Mills, said he is looking to opening elsewhere in St. Lawrence County once the Ogdensburg restaurant is settled.

“I really think our next location is going to be Massena,” he said.

The pizzeria’s neighbor in the subdivided Stewart’s building is the Create-A-Can gift shop.
