Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut Franchise

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. More about the cost of owning a Pizza Hut franchise below.
