Bedford's Little Caesars is now cooking up pizzas at its new location directly across U. S. 460 from Bedford's Wal-Mart.
The pizza restaurant had been in the old Winn/Dixie shopping center at the west end of Bedford for 16 years. The new location, according to Patrick O'Connell, is part of a new strategy to get the restaurants out of strip malls and into bright, visible, stand-alone facilities.
Actually, O'Connell owns more than the Bedford Little Caesars. He owns a multi-restaurant franchise. He opened his 20th restaurant in Roanoke in April.
