Our development on the international front is a good indication of the growth that has characterized our system. Following the opening of the first international restaurant in Canada in 1968, Pizza Hut restaurants quickly appeared in Mexico, South America, Australia, Europe, the Far East and Africa. Today, Pizza Hut operates in 84 countries and territories throughout the world.

We've been called a lot of names.
For ten of the last twelve years, Pizza Hut® was named Best Pizza Chain in America in the "Choice in Chains" national consumer survey published annually by Restaurants & Institutions Magazine. In 1997 Consumer Reports named Pizza Hut the best pizza chain in America and in 2000 and 2003, The Dallas Business Journal named Pizza Hut "The Best Company to Work For" in Dallas/Fort Worth.

Restaurants & Institutions' "2001 Choice in Chains" survey called Pizza Hut the number one national pizza chain in America. Our products have been voted number one in countless consumer surveys nationwide. Restaurant Business, Fortune, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal have cited our accomplishments as innovative business leaders.

Pizza Hut is the family pizza place.
As a matter of fact, we are rooted in family -- literally. Two brothers, mom and $600 turned into the recipe for the world's largest pizza company in 1958, when a family friend with the idea of opening a pizza parlor approached the two college-age brothers in Kansas. The concept was relatively new at the time and the brothers quickly saw the potential of this new enterprise. Borrowing $600 from their mother, they purchased second-hand equipment and rented a small building on a busy intersection in Wichita, Kansas. The result of their efforts was the first Pizza Hut and the foundation for what would become the largest and most successful pizza restaurant in the world.

Look how far we’ve come.
Pizza Hut franchisees exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit which launched our system back in 1958. Through interest and initiative, the Pizza Hut system was able to develop new territories both in the United States and overseas.
