Pizza Hut is one of the most known and appreciated brands in this segment. If you were open refrigerator of a college student in the United States, you surely would find a box of Pizza Hut. That’s because college students are wont to eat pizza for breakfast too, cool. Here are other interesting facts about the brand and its consumers:
Pizza Hut was a dream that started with only $ 600. This is a funny thing that happens with most large companies. For example, Paula Deen began her food empire with only $ 200. It may seem surprising that a small amount of money can get one of the largest pizza in the world.
Pizza Hut began in 1958 in Wichita, Kansas. With the $ 600 the founders managed to buy second-hand equipment and rented a small building. Another interesting fact is that the restaurant quickly spread to other cities and just as it is today, worldwide.
The two masterminds behind the Pizza Hut were college students (two precisely). Along with their mother, the two were able to build worldwide chain of pizza.
The Pizza Hut actually started with a family recipe. Another interesting fact is that many companies across America began with a family recipe. If you think you have a family recipe worth sharing with the world, why not consider starting a small business? You never know where it may lead.
In 1977, PepsiCo bought Pizza Hut. Another interesting fact is that PepsiCo owns several other brands, including Gatorade and Quaker, for example. PepsiCo eventually combine all its restaurants to create a whole new brand.
Another interesting fact is that the largest Pizza Hut restaurant is in Moscow. Each day, the restaurant sells $ 6,500 worth of food and drinks. It is also where Moscow has the world’s most popular McDonalds, which serves over 40,000 people a day.
The Pizza Hut may have started in Wichita, Kansas, but is now in over 100 other countries around the world. Another interesting fact is that several other restaurants in America are located throughout the world, including McDonalds, for example.
In 1997, PepsiCo created YUM! Brands. YUM! Brands has several popular restaurants, including Pizza Hut, KFC, Taco Bell, Long John Silvers, and A & W All American Food.
