State College pizza place closed ‘until further notice’

What will become of Little Caesars at 1712 S. Atherton St. in State College is unknown.

The restaurant closed several weeks ago, and social media rumors indicate employees walked out on management. Signage at the eatery indicated interior renovations were the cause of a temporary shuttering, but “unforeseen circumstances” would keep the restaurant closed “until further notice.”

Signs also indicate that the restaurant is hiring.

Little Caesars corporate representatives have not responded to requests for comment.

Tom Horgos and Robert Richards opened the Little Caesars location in September 2008, the first of three planned pizza places in Centre County, though the next two did not materialize. It is unknown who owns franchise rights in 2017 in the State College area.

Little Caesars was previously in Northland Center, but closed amid franchise restructuring in the late 1990s.\
