Marketing Brief of Pizza Hut
1.) The Company
Brief History of the Company
Pizza Hut® is the family pizza place.
As a matter of fact, we are rooted in familyliterally. Two brothers, mom, and $600 turned into the recipe for the world's largest pizza company in 1958, when a family friend with the idea of opening a pizza parlor approached the two college-age brothers in Kansas. The concept was relatively new at the time, and 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. How far Pizza Hut came to be
Pizza Hut franchisees exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit, which launched our system back in 1958. Through interest and initiative, the Pizza Hut system was able to develop new territories in the United States and overseas. Today, franchisees and joint-venture partnerships account for more than half of the Pizza Hut system's total units. Our development on the international front is a good indication of the growth that has characterized our system. Following the opening of the first international restaurant in Canada in 1968, Pizza Hut restaurants quickly appeared in Mexico, South America, Australia, Europe, the Far East and Africa. Today, Pizza Hut operates in more than 100 countries and territories throughout the world. How they do their best
Family ties. Another important step in our growth came in 1977 when Pizza Hut was acquired by one of the true giants of international business: PepsiCo, Inc. As part of the PepsiCo corporate family, Pizza Hut shared its leadership position with such fine products as Pepsi-Cola® brand soft drinks and Frito-Lay® brand snack foods. In October 1997, PepsiCo spun off the restaurant businesses (Pizza Hut, KFC and Taco Bell), and Tricon was founded. May 16, 2002, Tricon officially became YUM! Brands with the addition of two new brands, Long John Silver's and A&W. YUM! Brands is now the parent company of Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, KFC, A&W and Long John Silver's and is the world's largest restaurant company with more than 34,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries and territories. How they've earned their reputation
During the past four decades we've built a reputation for excellence that has earned us the respect of consumers and industry experts alike. Building a leading pizza company has required relentless innovation, commitment to quality and dedication to customer service and value. The qualities of entrepreneurship, growth and leadership have characterized our business through more than four decades of success. Through the strength of our heritage, our culture, our people and franchisees, we look forward to even more success in the decades ahead. Welcome to Pizza Hut Philippines!
