Say it ain’t so!…. I love Pizza Hut!
Original Pan Pizza with w/Grilled Chicken and Buffalo Wing sauce, please!
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.”David W. Gibbs
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.
