A Twitter user appeared to catch his local Little Caesars Pizza chain red-handed with DiGiorno frozen pizza. A Toledo TV station reported that the customer, who was in a Little Caesars, recorded video of a box of DiGiorno pizzas in a shopping cart at the end of the cash register. The Twitter user captioned the video with “This can’t be happening right in front of me.”
… Little Caesars replied to the video post, asking, “Which location was this?” but the tweet has since been deleted. The location where the video was filmed is not clear.
HERE IS THE UPDATE:
A viral tweet sparked an investigation into whether a Little Caesars location might be trading out its ridiculously cheap Hot-N-Readys for frozen DiGiorno pizzas. The tweet surfaced on Saturday with the caption “this can’t be happening right in front of me,” and featured a video of a Little Caesars restaurant and a shopping cart brimming with boxes of DiGiorno pizza seemingly waiting to be unloaded and baked for unsuspecting customers.
… After a brief investigation, Little Caesars said in a statement that the location in question operates out of a Kmart. The explanation, from the brand: “On that day, Kmart received a few complaints from customers about having purchased expired DiGiorno pizzas from that location, and because it was so close to closing time, the Kmart manager directed his employee to temporarily store them in a cooler adjacent to the Little Caesars location for disposal in the morning.”
