Administrative History

Pizza Hut started in 1958 by brothers, Dan and Frank Carney, who at the time were also University of Wichita students. Their first restaurant was located in a small building at Kellogg and Bluff, and is now located on the Wichita State University campus. By 1971 Pizza Hut had become the largest pizza chain in the world in both sales and number of restaurants. In 1977 Pizza Hut merged with PepsiCo. and opened headquarters in Wichita at 9111 East Douglas. The company moved its operations to Dallas in 1995..
