Pizza Hut Delivery is part of Yum! Brands, Inc. which is one of the world’s largest restaurant companies with over 40,000 restaurants in more than 125 countries and territories. Yum! Brands is ranked #216 on the FORTUNE 500 list with revenues of more than $13 billion and in 2014 was named among the 100 Best Corporate Citizens by Corporate Responsibility Magazine.
Yum! Brands has become a truly global company and we’re a leader in international retail development, opening on average over five new restaurants per day outside the U.S. in 2013. With our announcement to combine our Yum! Restaurants International (YRI) and U.S. individual divisions for Pizza Hut, KFC and Taco Bell, effective January 1, 2014, we are well positioned to more aggressively accelerate growth in the years ahead.
Pizza Hut was introduced to the UK in 1973 in Islington, London. The first Delivery unit opened in Kingsbury in 1988. Today there are over 650 Restaurant and Delivery units in the UK.
In December 2012 YUM! Restaurants International took the decision to sell the Restaurant side of the UK business and focus their efforts in driving the delivery business forward by a period of rapid expansion. Pizza Hut Delivery currently have over 300 stores in the UK with expectations to increase this number to over 700 units.
