We’ve all heard about Little Caesars, but few people actually know something about the man who started the company. Mike Ilitch is the embodiment of the American dream come true. Born in Macedonia, Mike’s parents immigrated to the United States with his family looking for a better life for them and their son.
And little Mike definitely made his parents proud. He was an excellent student and as he grew older, he started to take an interest in sport. Later in life, he even served in the Marines. He started his company in the 50’s and opened his first Little Caesars pizza store in 1959. The company is now valued at $3.4 billion dollars. Needless to say, Mike’s hard work paid off.
Sadly, Ilitch died this February, but his legacy and the impressive business empire he’s build will live on. But that’s not all the man will be known for. What few people know about him is that he was also extremely generous and kind. Although he didn’t like to brag about it, Ilitch did a lot of good deeds to help other people.
One of those people was Rosa Parks. After the man’s passing, details about how he helped the woman over the course of many years have surfaced – and it’s making people from all over the world appreciate Mike even more.
As it turns out, the business man quietly paid Rosa Parks’ rent for many years. As you probably know, Parks was an American civil rights activist, whom the United States Congress called “the first lady of civil rights.” The woman passed away in 2005 at the age of 92 after living in the same Riverfront Apartment for many years.
