Pizza Hut is making some changes and will be closing hundreds of dine-in locations across the U.S.

According to Food Business Network, the pizza franchise has decided to focus on delivery and carryout services, meaning it will cut back on “underperforming dine-in restaurants.”

“This will ultimately strengthen the Pizza Hut business in the U.S. and set it up for a faster long-term growth.”

President, YUM Brands

There are currently 7,496 Pizza Hut locations across the country, according to Yum! Brands website. Of those, 6,100 are traditional dine-in restaurants and 1,350 are express locations.

The total, however, is expected to drop to as low as 7,000 in the next two years Gibbs said.
