Mike Ilitch was a once-in-a-generation entrepreneur and champion for Detroit. He and his wife, Marian, invested their family savings in to open the first Little Caesars store in Garden City, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.
That single mom-and-pop pizza shop grew into the largest carryout pizza chain in the world, with restaurants in 23 countries and territories across the globe. The success of the business was built upon the exceptional quality and value of the Little Caesars menu and Mike's marketing savvy and imaginative ideas in production. The growth of Little Caesars helped Mike and Marian create other leading brands in the food, sports and entertainment industries.
The couple purchased the Detroit Red Wings inWhile the team was known as the Dead Wings at the time, Mike and Marian believed they were a sleeping giant and immediately took charge to turn the team around.
By , the Red Wings won their first Stanley Cup in 42 years, and they went on to win three more. Four Stanley Cup parades held along Woodward Avenue in Detroit attracted hundreds of thousands of people, many from the suburbs who had not been to downtown Detroit in decades. Detroit became known as Hockeytown and brought a sense of pride to the area's hockey fans and the community as a whole. Throughout Mike's life, he remained true to his hometown and was a zealous supporter of Detroit, working tirelessly to help it prosper and to bring pride to the city.
In , Mike and Marian purchased the neglected Fox Theatre and carefully restored it to its original splendor. One year later, they moved their Little Caesars world headquarters from the suburbs into the newly renovated Fox Office Center adjacent to the restored theatre.

Currently, the headquarters campus is being expanded with an addition of a new nine-story, , square foot building next door to the Fox Theatre.
Mike displayed further commitment to the city he loved when he purchased the Detroit Tigers in and built a new state-of-the-art ballpark for the team.
Remembering his early years as a Minor League baseball player with the Tigers, he did everything in his power to make the fan experience at Comerica Park a memorable one.
Mike also encouraged the Ford family to bring the Detroit Lions back to Detroit from the suburbs and build a new stadium right next door to the ballpark by relinquishing a portion of land to make way for the new stadium. The new football venue allowed Detroit to host the Super Bowl inToday - true to the vision of Mike and Marian for a bustling downtown area - the Ilitch organization is transforming dozens of blocks of largely underutilized land in Detroit into a special area for everyone in the community to enjoy.

Additionally, it was at Devellano's suggestion that the NHL instituted a new overtime format beginning with the season that included skating four aside as well as one point for each team following a five-minute overtime and an additional point if a team is victorious in overtime.

We aim to end the secret of Scouting abuse, and that starts with total transparency.
