Little Caesars Pizza has agreed to accept American Express cards at its 41 restaurants in Utah.

The restaurant company said it had not before accepted credit cards throughout a market, for both carryout and delivery.

To promote American Express, Little Caesars will run print advertisements, use in-store signs, and send 70,000 postcards with savings coupons to Utah households.

"Consumers want the convenience of credit cards for fast-food purchases," said Denise Ilitch Lites, Little Caesars vice chairwoman. "We eventually hope to provide charge card service to consumers throughout the country."
