One day in 1958, two enterprising college students, Frank and Dan Carney, borrowed $600 from their mom and opened a small pizza restaurant in their hometown in Wichita, Kansas.
Frank and Dan Carney’s secret of success was using only the freshest meat and vegetable toppings, with each pizza baked fresh to order. By December of the same year, they opened their second restaurant. By 1968, just 10 years later, they had opened over 300 restaurants.
Today, Pizza Hut serves over a million pizzas a day in more than 15,600 restaurants in 90 countries making it the No.1 pizza brand in the world.
In the Philippines, Pizza Hut began in 1984. It is now the country’s most popular pizza chain serving Metro Manila and surrounding provinces, as well as Visayas and Mindanao with its Dine-In Restaurants, Delivery Units and Express Counters.
The Home of Pan Pizza has indeed come a long way. It is still delighting millions of customers with pizza that is like no other – no wonder it’s the world’s favorite. So why don’t you take home to your loved ones one of our world-famous pizzas today?
Pizza Hut’s Secret of Success
The reason behind Pizza Hut’s success all over the world is its steadfast belief and uncompromising drive in providing customers the best in terms of product quality, service, cleanliness and value.
Pizza Hut pizzas are made with fresh dough baked daily and smothered with our very own Pizza Hut special tomato sauce, tender meat toppings, crunchy vegetables and a double layer of 100% pure imported Mozzarella cheese.
Service is an attitude in Pizza Hut. Crew members are trained to make customers feel appreciated. Customers are treated with courtesy, attentiveness, respect, and enthusiasm.
Cleanliness is a must in Pizza Hut as much as giving customers the best value for their money.
Pizza Hut Delivery: The country’s pioneer and leader
The equation of Pizza Hut’s secret for success sums up to customer’s total satisfaction. In 1989, Pizza Hut started its delivery service through its Restaurant Based Delivery (RBD) units located in Quad Parksquare, Greenbelt (Makati City) and Delta, Quezon Ave. cor. West Ave. (Quezon City). The growing demand for delivery prompted the opening of the first Delivery and Carryout (DELCO) unit in Greenhills, San Juan in 1990.
A DELCO unit is a special Pizza Hut store catering mainly to delivery and carryout patrons. It provides facilities for carryout customers who may want to eat in the store. Today, Pizza Hut has a total of 60 DELCO, 110 Restaurants and 3 Express Slice Counters – another Pizza Hut Innovation.
Another creation of Pizza Hut is the slice unit which caters to customers who want to avail of quick food service. This was conceptualized precisely for people on the go, individuals who want to eat pizza without the usual waiting time.
