We're Thankful for Our Businesses and Their Continued Support
One of the Best Holiday Networking Events in Southern WV
For more than 20 years the Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce Education Committee, Raleigh County Schools and Marquee Cinemas have partnered together to present “Career Day” to all of our Raleigh County 8th Graders to teach them about some of the career opportunities that are available to them here in our community.
The tradition continues this year and we want to thank everyone that participated, attended and volunteered:
We want to thank the students from Beckley Stratton Middle School, Independence Middle School, Park Middle School, Shady Spring Middle School, Trap Hill Middle School and Greater Beckley Christian School for their attentiveness and professionalism during the Career Day Process.
After meeting and talking with the students, Needy Mo Dough knows that all of the students will be well prepared for their first interview and will be ready to “Get A Job”
Each of these many years the Marquee Cinemas, Beckley Galleria 14 staff goes above and beyond their duties to welcome our business representatives and students, and to make sure we have everything we need to help students learn about career opportunities.
Career Day would not be possible without the involvement of many talented business representatives from our area. A special thank you to all participating businesses for your time and continued support for Career Day:

New Location Grand Opening
Thank you for inviting us to be a part of the celebration. the new location is perfect with seating area to enjoy your pizza on-site. Check out the new location at 1277 Robert C. Byrd Drive in Crab Orchard.
The local franchise operator, Vicki Dunn-Marshall, opened her first Little Caesars restaurant in 1982. This is the franchise’s 26th location and 20th in West Virginia.
“Customers today are looking for a great value when feeding their families,” said franchise operator Vicki Dunn-Marshall. “Little Caesars has been named the Best Value in America for ten years in a row*.” Mike Insco, Vice President of VDM adds “We take great pride in serving our customers a quality pizza. We make our dough fresh every day, use never frozen cheese and our pizza sauce is made from vine ripe tomatoes not tomato paste. Value plus quality is a great combination”.
Giving back to the communities has been a part of the Little Caesars business philosophy since the franchise began in 1959. The Crab Orchard location will now be joining our other locations and will be donating pizza to the agencies of Mountaineer Foodbank on a regular basis.
The employees of the new Little Caesars Store look forward to being a part of the Crab Orchard community and supporting local schools, churches and community groups.
Little Caesars will offer giveaways all month long including Little Caesars HOT-N-READY Pizza for a year, a Little Caesars Prize Basket and more. There will even be special appearances by Little Caesar himself.
Family favorites for the entire family include HOT-N-READY® Pepperoni, Cheese and Sausage Pizza, Crazy Bread, Italian Cheese Bread, Caesar Wings and Caesar Dips, our Deep Deep Dish, Supreme and The Extra Most Bestest Pizza.
