Pizza Hut is an American restaurant chain and international franchise founded in 1958 by Dan and Frank Carney. The company is known for its Italian-American cuisine menu including pizza and pasta, as well as side dishes and desserts. Pizza Hut has 16,796 restaurants worldwide as of March 2018, making it the world's largest pizza chain in terms of locations. It is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc., one of the world's largest restaurant companies.
Pizza Hut was founded in June 1958 by two Wichita State University students, brothers Dan and Frank Carney, as a single location in Wichita, Kansas, Six months later they opened a second outlet and within a year there were six Pizza Hut restaurants. The brothers began franchising in 1959. The iconic Pizza Hut building style was designed in 1963. PepsiCo acquired Pizza Hut in November 1977.
The company announced a rebrand that began on November 19, 2014. The rebrand was an effort to increase sales, which dropped in the previous two years. The menu was expanded to introduce various items such as crust flavors and eleven new specialty pizzas. Work uniforms for employees were also refreshed. In 2017, Pizza Hut was listed by UK-based company Richtopia at number 24 in the list of 200 Most Influential Brands in the World
Pizza Hut is split into several different restaurant formats: the original family-style dine-in locations; storefront delivery and carry-out locations; and hybrid locations that have carry-out, delivery, and dine-in options. Some full-size Pizza Hut locations have a lunch buffet, with "all-you-can-eat" pizza, salad, desserts, bread sticks, and a pasta bar. Pizza Hut has other business concepts independent of the store type; Pizza Hut "Bistro" locations are "Red Roofs" which have an expanded menu and slightly more upscale options.
An upscale concept was unveiled in 2004, called "Pizza Hut Italian Bistro". At 50 U.S. locations, the Bistro is similar to a traditional Pizza Hut, except the menu features new, Italian-themed dishes such as penne pasta, chicken pomodoro, and toasted sandwiches. Instead of black, white, and red, Bistro locations feature a burgundy and tan motif. Pizza Hut Bistros still serve the chain's traditional pizzas and sides. In some cases, Pizza Hut has replaced a "Red Roof" location with the new concept. "Pizza Hut Express" and "The Hut" locations are fast food restaurants. They offer a limited menu with many products not seen at a traditional Pizza Hut. These types of stores are often paired in a colocated location with WingStreet, in USA and Canada, or other sibling brands such as KFC or Taco Bell, and found on college campuses, food courts, theme parks, bowling alleys, and within stores such as Target.
Vintage "Red Roof" locations, designed by architect Richard D. Burke, can be found in the United States and Canada; several exist in the UK, Australia, and Mexico. In his book Orange Roofs, Golden Arches, Phillip Langdon wrote that the Pizza Hut "Red Roof" architecture "is something of a strange object – considered outside the realm of significant architecture, yet swiftly reflecting shifts in popular taste and unquestionably making an impact on daily life. These buildings rarely show up in architectural journals, yet they have become some of the most numerous and conspicuous in the United States today."
Curbed.com reports, "Despite Pizza Hut's decision to discontinue the form when they made the shift toward delivery, there were still 6,304 'traditional units' standing as of 2004, each with the shingled roofs and trapezoidal windows signifying equal parts suburban comfort and strip-mall anomie." This building style was common in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The name "Red Roof" is somewhat anachronistic now, since many locations have brown roofs. Dozens of "Red Roofs" have closed or been relocated or rebuilt.
Many "Red Roof" branches have beer if not a full bar, music from a jukebox, and sometimes an arcade. In the mid-1980s, the company moved into other successful formats including delivery or carryout and the fast food "Express" model.
Two years after this video was made I got my first job in the pizza business it was a local joint all the pies were hand-tossed the ingredients were top-of-the-line the ovens were nothing special by today's standards. But again the pies were hand tossed and it was my job any given Saturday or Sunday to toss the dough in the tossing window that protruded into the street. I was asked to try to do it once and I was such a natural they never let me leave the window. Seeing the instructions around 9 minutes on to how to use that dough stretcher and not touch the dough oh my God come on, but then again their employees were not me. That's probably one of my better memories of my life being just as amazed myself as the people watching me I could spin that damn dough way up in the air and catch it so easily.
I love these training videos. Prime has a lot of Sprocket Media compilations of old industrial films for anyone interested.
Also, this is pretty well made compared to a lot I've seen. The campy tone, I love it. Reminds me of Punky Brewster.
Yeah, that still stands today at Pizza Hut. We don’t wear gloves when we make pizza, we just wash our hands thoroughly before touching the uncooked food, and we are instructed to never touch cooked food with our hands. It’s only unsafe when touching cooked food.
Having major flashbacks! Though we never weighed anything, we had scoops for almost everything to measure how much to put on, though our peppers where diced not sliced. We'd also count the pepperoni slices, that was fun. I know it's for training, but I'd top 50 pizzas in the time they took to do one, I hope she got faster :p
Not all states require that you wear gloves there's alternative hand washing methods.I have food and safety as a manager and I've lived from Florida to New York so I know a little bit about a little bit
I like to think the new girl is being smarmy and sarcastic and the manager is just falling for it.
It's wild to remember how Pizza Hut used to be. These days, it's rare to find a location that even has a dine-in option.
That was then. This is now. P H has been invaded and taken over by Alien Zombies from The planet Krypton. At the interview you'll enter a space time hole, and will be reprogrammed. You'll never be the same again.
BEST: Basic Effectiveness Skills Training.
I left Pizza Hut back in 2000. I reckon I could still go into a store and make a batch of thin and pan dough, sauce, and all the fixings on the make table from memory.
I remember the pizza hut restaurant in Rialto,California on foothill st my grandpa use to take me there u would sit and order and there would be a over head light with the pizza hut logo and we will always get a pitcher of soda man those were my Saturdays to bad they closed it down. That was in 95 or 96
"Delicious Pan Pizza and delicious Thin n Crispy Pizza.What more could a customer want?" Delicious Stuff Crust pizza.Which i have a very unhealthy addiction to because of how good they are....thanks Pizza Hut
And that is a part of my history. I never worked at one but that was a first date place to eat...when you are 15. I'm old. Back then it was semi dark, you had your own table overhead light, you sit down, waiter took your order, and then brought you the pizza. Cozy and romantic...those days are gone. Still is really good pizza.
BTW, I read the description and love the history. Guys, keep it family friendly!
