Pizza Hut US to close down

I remembered reading online few days back, will this affect the Singapore branches? :o

Had Toys R Us shut down here yet?

We had an atrocious dominos pizza experience last weekend, couldn’t believe what we got for $100....wouldn’t mind Dominos shutting down

Pizza Hut is not closing down. It is closing about 500 of its 7000 dine in restaurants in the USA. The brand is moving away from dine in to take away and delivery.

Its foreign country strategy won't necessarily follow that of the USA... it all depends on trends in each country. But the pandemic will probably accelerate the closing of dine in facilities. Pizza Hut is part of Yum Foods, which also owns Taco Bell and KFC.

I love strong coffee! Helps to get over the food coma...have to make sure it’s not the terrible Starbucks. Thankful for Kopitiams In neat proximity to give that Kopi hit...

I’m just glad they have Little Caesars here now (affectionately known as little sleazers). Price is cheap enough and taste is good enough... takes me back to my college days. Pizza Hut has got to be one of the worst pizza chains. I’m amazed they have fared so well. The only really good pizza I remember from Pizza Hut was the Priazzo back in 1985!

Little Caesars was great in Baltimore, a $5 pie and 2x six packs would sort us out for a night of video gaming...

Quite enjoyed the one here, though once it goes cold it becomes challenging to eat, hence the sauce dips I Guess...they also need to sort out the customer service side of things.

BBCDoc, how much time did you spend in Balmer? Med School perchance?

SMS,

I was at JH for 4 years. Worked on an HIV vaccine...hence you may sense some of my cynicism for the current COVID efforts...

I also spent about 5 months in JH as well, from 1 Sept 1947 to around the end of Feb of '48. It's the main reason I'm still here today. :cool: :mrgreen:

I hear you on the HIV vaccine. I left MD in 1977 although I still have family down on the shore where I grew up.
