The franchisee, Palmtree ph Foods Corp., is owned by James Kodrowski. Kodrowski, also manages a group of companies that operate in the region. The first restaurant to open under the new franchise relationship will be located at the Metrosquare Building in Manila. Additionally, Little Caesars Pizza will open its first location in the Republic of Singapore in January.

“We’re excited to bring Little Caesars to the Philippines as we believe the country is a perfect fit for our international expansion due to its strong affinity for both pizza and value,” said Paula Vissing, senior vice president of International for Little Caesars Pizza. “James Kodrowski is an experienced restaurant partner with strong market connections and the insight needed to bring our unique pizza offering to our Philippine guests who love freshness, quality, and taste.”
