Why Pizza Hut
We love pizza. We eat it a lot. There’s no doubt about that and we’re proud of it. But what makes us different is that it’s our people that drive the success of our business.
Alongside KFC and Taco Bell, we are part of the Yum! family; the world’s largest restaurant company with nearly 43,000 restaurants in over 140 countries. With more than 1,400 stores across the UK and Europe, the Pizza Hut Europe business unit is headquartered at the Restaurant Support Centre (RSC) in St Albans and leads the Pizza Hut brand in more than 25 countries with 130 franchisees. In Europe, our UK business is the biggest, and is the most digital around the world, with 70% of orders coming online.
We are on a journey to build the most loved global brand and the fastest growing in every country; we have big plans over the next 5 years to achieve explosive growth in a competitive and ever growing market. Given the franchise nature of the business, Pizza Hut Europe offers the entrepreneurial dynamism of a start-up, combined with the commercial strengths of a well-established business.
Hungry for something extra? We’re a talent engine for the wider Yum family where we create big global careers by helping you be the very best you can be.
