About Pizza Hut

In 1972, not long after the "red roof" gained its fame in America, Costa Rica became the first international country to invest in this tasty enterprise. Today, Pizza Hut is an international staple present in more than 100 countries worldwide. While in the USA and Canada the brand has become focused on the home delivery segment, internationally Pizza Hut’s business is more evenly balanced between restaurants and home delivery. In fact Pizza Hut is the world’s largest casual dining chain in terms of number of restaurants, and in markets such as China, India and South East Asia, Pizza Hut has defined the casual dining category.
