Company Description

One of the largest pizza chains in the world, Pizza Hut is operated by Yum Brands, along with popular fast-food chains KFC and Taco Bell. Pizza Hut had been the top pizza brand in the country in terms of revenue since 1971, but has been recently overtaken by Domino’s.

Founded in 1958 by brothers Frank and Dan Carney in Wichita, Kansas, Pizza Hut has grown to more than 16,000 locations in more than 100 countries. Its pizza has also been delivered to the White House.

Pizza Hut is also the first national pizza company to commit to using antibiotic-free chicken in its products such as chicken wings. Stores are often co-branded with WingStreet in the U.S. and Canada, as well as sibling brands KFC and Taco Bell.
