Pizza Hut opened its first restaurant in Johannesburg, South Africa.
This is the pizza chain’s first location on the African continent. “We consider South Africa a stepping-stone into the rest of the continent,” said Randall Blackford, general manager, Pizza Hut Africa. “Based on our company’s experience successfully developing KFC in South Africa and other countries, we plan to use the same model to introduce Pizza Hut to Namibia, Angola and Zambia over the next year.” The Johannesburg location features digital menu boards, free Wi-Fi and online ordering and delivery. In addition to Pizza Hut’s international favorites, the menu features popular items that appeal to local taste preferences with toppings like Boerewors sausage and pizza made with Peri-Peri sauce.
