Children who master the art of spelling develop an extensive vocabulary, admirable literacy skills and a great enjoyment of reading and literature which serves them well as adults.
What’s more, Spelling Bee competitions help in character building of confident young men and women, who can exercise patience and a competitive spirit. This is the observation of Oshane Thoms, brand manager, Popeyes and Little Caesars, Jamaica.
Little Caesars, one of the sponsors of the annual Gleaner’s Children’s Own Spelling Bee Competition, recently hosted the 2023 winners and finalists of the competition at their Manor Centre Restaurant.
Thoms said the competition was well aligned with the brand’s theme, ‘Little Caesars Forging the Path For the Future Generation’.
“This is why we allocate millions annually to this and other programmes including Little Caesars Junior Challenge, and Little Caesars’/JISA Prep School Championships. We pride ourselves in nation building and it gives us tremendous satisfaction to help in fulfilling the dreams of our little geniuses,” Thoms noted.
“Little Caesars is well pleased to give back to the communities that have helped to establish the brand as a winner in Jamaica.”
While noting that Little Caesars is the third largest pizza chain in the United States, Thoms said: “The brand is committed to offering new products that will please local customers. For example, our newest Super Cheese pizzas have crust stuffed with cheese and can be enjoyed as large pepperoni or cheese. For those who want more, we have a host of done to order options including the popular Jerk Chicken Pizza- only available in Jamaica and Bar b que chicken pizza.”
He also shared that there are more plans to bring variety to the menu, which will allow customers to try new options.
Already serving communities in Manor Park, Montego Bay, Half-Way Tree, May Pen, Mandeville, Greater Portmore, Cross Roads and Negril, Little Caesars is poised for further expansion across Jamaica this year.
