You don’t become the
world’s largest
pizza company by accident.

Why Pizza Hut?

Pizza Hut first opened in 1958 in Wichita, Kansas, when brothers used $600 borrowed from their mom to open a pizza place. They named it Pizza Hut because the sign had just room for eight letters. It, of course, grew — because the pizza was awesome, the service felt like home, and the people treated the customer like family. Those same tenets apply today. It’s how a restaurant should do business. Since then, we’ve been spinning small-town passion and big-minded innovation into a pizza restaurant powerhouse beloved in more than 100 countries.
