Pizza Hut is an American-based international chain of restaurants founded in Kentucky in 1958 by brothers Dan and Frank Carney. The chain is known especially for selling pizza, but it also sells pasta, buffalo wings, side dishes, desserts and Pepsi-Cola products. Pizza Hut is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands.
Many of Pizza Hut's locations are traditional dine-in restaurants, along with a number of storefront takeout and delivery locations and some hybrid restaurants that handle dine-in, takeout and delivery. Some dine-in locations have lunch buffets that serve all-you-can-eat pizza, salad, breadsticks and pasta. Some locations, branded as Pizza Hut Express and The Hut, are fast-food locations with limited menus and are often co-located with co-owned fast food chains such as Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell and WingStreet and can also be found on college campuses, in shopping mall food courts, at theme parks and in some department stores. Traditional Pizza Hut restaurant designs, called the "Red Roof", are mostly found in the United States and Canada.
