Pizza Hut is a world-famous American pizza restaurant chain beloved for its classic pan pizza and its Original Stuffed Crust. Founded in Wichita, Kansas, in 1958, the founders were Wichita State University students and brothers Dan and Frank Carney. They borrowed $600 from their mother to open the first Pizza Hut location. With more than 16,000 brick-and-mortar restaurants worldwide in roughly 100 countries, Pizza Hut remains the world’s largest pizza restaurant chain. It is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc., one of the largest restaurant companies in the world. Today, Pizza Hut’s menu consists of pizza, calzones, wings and pasta. An array of sides includes everything from garlic knots to fries and fried mozzarella sticks. On top of its continuously strong food sales, Pizza Hut continues to hold the “First Time” record for a series of unmatched, unprecedented historical moments. They were the first pizza company to deliver to the White House (1989), to deliver to the International Space Station (2001) and to deliver to Mount Kilimanjaro (2016). They officially adopted their iconic red roof by architect Richard D. Burke in 1969.
