The first Pizza Hut was actually a very small house located next to a college campus in Wichita, Kansas, in 1958. Today, Pizza Hut is part of a large parent company called Yum! Brands that includes Pepsi products, KFC, and Taco Bell. Part of the largest restaurant company in the world, Pizza Hut can be found in most major cities in 94 countries. One of Pizza Hut’s top charities is a program that rewards children for reading books with free pizza. Pizza Hut received negative press for containing high sodium levels in their food and made headlines for reducing salt across the board in their menus.
