Pizza Hut restaurants offer pizza, pasta and other Italian-style food items, and WingStreet chicken products and side dishes.

Franchise Pizza Hut

All new franchisees must complete the Initial Training Program. The Initial Training Program is held in headquarters offices and at the system restaurant in Plano, Texas. The Initial training program includes a “First Slice” course. Duration of the First Slice depends on franchisees’ experience (or their qualified operators) and will vary from 8 to 12 weeks at the discretion of the franchisor.

This course requires from franchisees or other required trainees at least

  1. attend at all Franchisee Onboarding (one-on-one meetings with designated Pizza Hut functional leaders),
  2. attend and complete Restaurant Training (including all mandatory web-based training through the Learning Zone) at that franchisor designates,
  3. attend at all Pizza Prep classes that provided in headquarters or nearby,
  4. Completion of all parts of the First Slice Onboarding Checklist.

The First Slice must be completed three to four weeks before the opening of the restaurant. According to guidelines that the franchisor may specify in the brand standards or otherwise, the franchisee may request on-site training or assistance at any time. Periodically, the franchisor may offer additional training required to franchisees and the system restaurant manager(s) to attend and complete. The franchisor may also provide conferences, conventions, or training session programs.

Territory Granted: The franchisor will grant Protected Radius to the franchisees. Protected Radius consists of 500 yards surrounding each restaurant.

The franchisor will not develop or operate, or allow any other franchisee or licensee to develop or operate on-site or within the Protected Radius, a system restaurant that is similar to the type of system restaurant concept that the franchisee operates at the site, as long as the franchisee adheres to all brand standards, the fulfillment of delivery orders to national, regional and institutional accounts and provide adequate delivery services throughout the delivery area (s). For each restaurant, the franchisor will grant franchisees a specified delivery area, where they can deliver menu items.

Obligations and Restrictions: This is not a requirement, however, the franchisor recommends that the franchisee (or their principal owners) participate in the daily operation of the restaurant(s). An on-site manager who has completed the required training program must directly supervise the restaurant.

Franchisees must also appoint and maintain one or more qualified operators to actively manage and participate in the daily operation and ownership of their franchise business. The franchisor will designate a number of qualified operators depending on the size and scope of the restaurant.

The franchisor must approve each of the qualified operators (such approval must not be unreasonably denied). Unless otherwise agreed in writing, franchisees may sell only goods approved by the franchisor, and are standard for the type of system restaurant franchisees operate.

Term of Agreement and Renewal: Generally, the initial term of the franchise is 10 years. If requirements are met, franchisees have two consecutive Renewal Franchise Agreements for a period of five years each.

Financial Assistance: The franchisor does not offer, directly or indirectly, any arrangements for financing a franchisee’s initial investment or the continuing operation of their restaurants, except for circumstances described below. The franchisor may choose not to allow them to participate in any of the credit assistance programs, even if the franchisees meet all of the program requirements. Pizza Hut, LLC can close the Lending Assistance Programs at any time.

  1. YUM Minority Lending Assistance Program: YUM will guarantee 25% of up to $12,000,000 of the principal of the franchised business loan, up to a maximum of $3,000,000 per loan or franchisee if minority franchisees satisfy YUM’s participation criteria and YUM agrees to allow them to participate.
  2. Pizza Hut Employee Lending Assistance Program: For qualified former employees of Pizza Hut, LLC and its predecessor and/or affiliates the franchisor offers an optional lending assistance program. Lending assistance will take the form of guaranteeing 25% of their loan principal under this program, for a maximum guaranteed amount of $1,250,000 per loan or franchisee if the franchisee meets the participation criteria and the franchisor agrees to allow them to participate.

Testimonials

Mike

Pizza Hut is what it is to me it's never gonna blow you away but time from order to delivery was 45m. 2 large pizzas, breadsticks, sauces, soda...plenty for several meals for $42 including tax, delivery and $5 tip. Driver was super friendly and brought lots of extra red pepper and parm cheese, napkins.
Pizza was hot and tasted fine.
Love this place they always have really good service employees always give this place a good vibe and food is always spot on love them.

Kelli

Now and then, my family gets take-out from this Pizza Hut (PH) for a convenient and easy dinner. The parking area immediately by this PH isn't the biggest, but the eatery shares a lot with Safeway, so you can always just park around the corner from PH if you want more spacious stalls.

This PH location has always been pretty consistent, in terms of pizza quality and service. We always phone in our orders ahead of time and would pick up the pizzas on the way home from church/our destination on ...Saturdays when we did order take-out. Show all

Holly

This place is cheap, and the quality is real good. Whenever I pickup the pizza is ready and the checkout is quick. One star docked because if you get delivery the pizza usually isn't warm.
I was surprised the pizza didn' t take forever to get to the wharf . I order it at 1pm. So far so good. I enjoyed the pizza bite.
Pizza Hut now has honey Sriracha BBQ wings and they are deliciously hot and spicy! Woo hoo! Try them, you'll love them!

Kelsey

I ordered delivery because my family and I just moved to Riverside, I specified "knock quietly baby sleeping" and I barley heard the knock. The young lady delivering was so polite and quiet I tipped her super good.
Literally I'm so grateful for this correct, hot, and quiet order.
Thank you new Pizza Hut. The Baxter's love and appreciate you.

Chaylene

I had a complicated order and unfortunately they made it wrong but to my amazement they gave me a free pizza and the manager called to apologize. Amazing customer service mistakes do happen but they owned up to it fixed it and made me a life time customer.
The people who deliver your pizza are generally friendly, never had an issue here.
Pan pizza is my favorite type of pizza so of course I'm biased, I like Pizza Hut!

Alizen

The workers here are incredibly nice and the store itself is situated in a tiny, wooden building. It looks absolutely adorable! Highly recommend this place as it is usually still open an hour or two after all of its competitors and their pizzas always come out hot and fresh at the exact time they say they'll make it!
They always have my order finished on time. I also think they put enough toppings to satisfy any customer. Their location is a little difficult to reach, but it's oaky because ther...e is parking in the back. Show all

Vandana

This Pizza Hut is cool simply because it's a dine in Pizza Hut. You have the choice of picking up pizza or dinning in and actually ordering from a lengthy menu.

The dining area itself is a nice size. Clean and clean tables as well! Note that the pizzas aren't normal pieced.
It seemed to be a bit more expensive and of course there's no "deals" or "coupons" that you can use when you regularly order pizza. Our experience here was okay. The wait was pretty lengthy however the pizza and the brow...nie came fresh as can be.
Both tasted realllly great!

Would definitely make my way around here again if I wanted to spend a little more to dine in and eat my pizza.

John

We had an impromptu outing with 11 kids and the parents. The restaurant and the wait staff were very accommodating and patient.

The food while not gourmet is inexpensive.

The restaurant was roomy.

Kevin

There aren't many dine-in Pizza Hut restaurants anymore and this is the lat of a dying breed. I love pizza and realistically who doesn't but there's a different taste of having a a fresh Pizza Hut pizza right then and there. Pizza Hut is so much better when it fresh out the oven and not being delivered 45 minutes later. The service was pretty good wish our waiter had a personality instead of a drone.
I came here on a Saturday with my family and had a good time. This was the second time we had c...ame and the first time was like this time. The waitress was attentive and polite. The food was like any other regular Pizza Hut. I don't know why the other reviews don't really recommend the place. I would come back. Show all

Junior

Ate Pizza Hut growing up and it still tastes the same! If you create an online account they send you a coupon for free cheesy bread. It said ready in 15 min but since they had so many orders it took 20 to 25 minutes but they were polite. I will be back on another cheat day.

This place is cool 10/10 wouldn't mind receiving E. coli as long as the food continue to taste this great
Also the manager Miguel is really handsome and cool and should totally get a raise.
And weekends off.
