Pizza Hut

  1. Nov 19, 2004 #1
    Hey guys!Stupid question but I need to know what is going on.
    I went to the mall and passed by Pizza Hut restaurant and i started wondering, who the hell came up with the name Pizza Hut for a restaurant? :confused:
    Why Hut? do they make huts from pizza in Italy?
    Why not Pizza Pants, or Pizza Socks?

    I suspect it was related to the first ones all being free-standing buildings...a hut where you can buy your pizza. It loses the impact when they are just counters in a mall foodcourt.

    Here's their story of how they started:

    I like stories like this.

    I have done a lot of work for a large snack food company in NC. It began around the turn of the century when the company's founder was paid a debt in peanuts; a truckload of them! Since this was the only way to recover his lost funds he sold the peanuts on street corners, and a company was born.

    So they're the one who started the peanut butter and crackers. Entrepreneurs are one creative bunch. Interesting history

    They are really great folks as well; one of my all time favorite customers. I certainly prefer their company's culture over certain, to remain un-named competitors.

    I started their fudge line last time. That job about put me in a diabetic coma! :yuck:

    Anyway, sorry to derail your thread tumor. I only meant to mention this as an aside.

    I had Pizza Hut pizza not too long ago for the first time in years, and I was surprised at how yummy it is!

    I worked for Pizza Hut during a short period 2 years ago. Then I worked 6 months in Telepizza (I guess that there's no Telepizza in the USA). It was nice when, some days, they gave me a portion of pizza when I finished my work :tongue2:
