BLACKSBURG — Amid some other incoming eateries, pizza chain Little Caesars plans to open a location at the site of the former Asian Grill Buffet at 1200 S. Main St.
The restaurant will give the New River Valley its fifth Little Caesars. The pizza chain already maintains a location on North Franklin Street in Christiansburg, as well as in Radford, Dublin and Pulaski.
The South Main Street location will be the only one in Blacksburg.
A Little Caesars banner announcing the restaurant’s arrival has been placed in front of the Asian Grill sign above the business’ entrance.
A Montgomery County property records search shows that the building belongs to Aspen Land Development, but the firm couldn’t be reached to comment on the Little Caesars move.
Little Caesars is among a handful of restaurants making some moves in the restaurant- and retail-heavy South Main corridor this year.
Lefty’s Main Street Grille, which neighbors the new Little Caesars location, is preparing to move to 1410 S. Main St., with work on its future home well underway.
Also joining the 1000 block of S. Main St. will be Zoes Kitchen and Starbucks, both of which are slated to open inside the First & Main shopping center later this year. Construction on the Zoes site started earlier this summer.
