Name: Pizza Hut
Type of Food: Pizza
Interesting Fact: The true reason it was called ‘Pizza Hut’ is because when Dan and Frank Carney got the sign to put in front of their first restaurant in ‘Wichita, Kansas’ there was only enough room for a three letter word after Pizza.
History: Pizza Hut was founded in 1958 by two brothers, Dan and Frank Carney, in Wichita, Kansas. A family friend gave them the idea of opening a pizza parlor, and while the concept was relatively new at the time, 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. Today Pizza Hut chain has nearly 34,000 restaurants, delivery-carry out units, and kiosks in 100 countries.
