Pizza Hut is a leading American restaurant chain. Though pizza is unsurprisingly the most ordered food item on the menu, the menu also features a wide selection of pasta, wings, sides, desserts, drinks, and calzones. Customers love Pizza Hut’s reliable quality and prices, and the brand has established quite a reputation for itself as a result. Pizza Hut has two main restaurant designs: original dine-in locations and storefronts that offer only delivery and carryout items. Many of the dine-in restaurants offer all-you-can-eat lunchtime buffets.
Pizza Hut began with two brothers, Frank and Dan Carney, borrowing $600 from their mom to start a pizzeria in Wichita, Kansas. The first Pizza Hut opened its doors in 1958. The first franchised location opened in 1960 in Topeka, Kansas. Today, Pizza Hut has locations throughout the world serving pizza, pasta and wings. Pizza Hut is owned by Yum! Brands, parent company of KFC and Taco Bell.
