Planner Trevor Cole said the pizza chain was featured on the Town Planning Board's January agenda.

Cole said the request was in its early stages and would be seeking site plan review at the upcoming session. 

"The plans themselves don't say, 'Little Caesars,'" he said, "but we've been told that's what it is." 

The group, founded in 1959 and headquartered in Michigan, has stores in 50 U.S. states and 26 countries and territories, making it the third largest pizza chain in the world. 

Per its website, the chain was named "Best Value in America" for the past 12 years via a national survey of quick-service restaurants conducted by Sandelman & Associates.

"Little Caesars products are made with quality ingredients, like fresh, never frozen, mozzarella and Muenster cheese and sauce made from fresh-packed, vine-ripened California crushed tomatoes," the website says. 

The featured Town Board request seeks a special-use permit to add a pick-up window to an existing structure, at 71 to 75 Smithfield Blvd. in the Town of Plattsburgh, for a "proposed fast-food franchise."

The address would place the possible eatery in the same plaza that houses restaurant Dickey's Barbecue Pit and retailer Plattsburgh Golf.

Though in its early stages, Cole said the proposed space hovered somewhere around 2,000 square feet, or less. 

"It's a pretty small space and they're proposing something like four seats," the planner said, comparing the concept to that of the Domino's Pizza at 331 Cornelia St.

"It would be almost like a cabinet door that you open," he said, adding that more details would become available further in the process. 

The possible concept fell in line with the chain's recent rollout of its Pizza Portal pickup, which, per a news release, allowed customers to place orders through the shop's app and pickup the food via an outdoor, heated, locker-type system. 

"Little Caesars breakthrough Pizza Portal pickup is the first heated, self-service mobile order pickup station in the restaurant industry," the release says.

"The company has combined the convenience of mobile ordering and pre-payment, with heated self-service pickup to create an entirely new experience for customers, proving once again that Little Caesars will stop at no end to innovate to always offer value, convenience and quality for its customers."

Through the Little Caesars app, users could schedule orders up to six days in advance, use the store locator feature and make payments via mobile pay systems such as Apple Pay.

Though the pizza chain has had shops in the Greater Plattsburgh area before, the latest location left with the local Kmart in 2018. 

Town Supervisor Michael Cashman said it was no surprise an uptown location was being eyed for the pizza shop's future site. 

"When Kmart shuttered their doors, there was an overwhelming interest by the public about the Little Caesars franchise," he said. 

"When it left, people were really disappointed," he said. "For some people, the Little Caesars was the last reason that they went into Kmart."
