By 1966, Pizza Hut established a large home office in Wichita to help oversee the 145 Pizza Hut franchise restaurants that were established.

 It didn't take long for Pizza Hut to become the No. 1 pizza restaurant chain in the world. In 1971, only 13 years after the Carney brothers started their first Pizza Hut, Pizza Hut became the world's most successful pizza restaurant in terms of sales as well as in the number of restaurants around the world. Pizza Hut has aggressively sought out franchise owners. It has made itself more attractive to franchise owners is by aligning itself with other restaurants such as Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Long John Silvers (ultimately all becoming a part of the Yum! Franchising group). One of the more unique items of note, Pizza Hut sets itself apart from a lot of its competitors because it allows Franchisee's autonomy in deciding some of the items they will carry on their menus such as
 being free to use different kinds of toppings from different suppliers. While there are differences in ingredients, the basic elements in each pizza are the same. This allows consumers to get the familiar taste they love, but also allows franchise owners to branch out. Pizza Hut Franchise Submarine Sandwiches and Salads Company Website:......

Pizza Hut

...Pizza Hut History The Pizza Hut story began in 1958 in Wichita, Kansas where two brothers, Danny and Frank Caney, opened their first restaurant. Within one year, they franchised their first unit. In 1968, the company entered the international market with a store in Canada. The following year stores opened in Australia, Mexico and Germany. In 1977, Pepsico, leader in the snack and beverage industry acquired Pizza Hut, initiating its entrance into the restaurant industry. At that point in time, Pizza Hut consisted of approximately 3,200 units (Tricon website 2001). By 1989, Pizza Hut had stores in fifty four countries and in the same year the company opened its first location in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. The parent company Pepsico grew later with the acquisition of Taco Bell and KFC, each brand expanding through the development of company-owned units and franchises throughout the world. In an effort to sharpen Pepsico’s focus, in 1997, it announced a plan to separate the company’s packaged goods and restaurant businesses. The new company was named Tricon Global Restaurants, and upon its formation became the world’s largest restaurant company in terms of units, and second in the world in terms of sales (Pepsico websitepress releases). The Tricon corporate philosophy promotes “A passion for putting a ‘YUM’ on people’s faces around the world… that special eating experience that makes you smile and creates lifelong customers” (Tricon website 2001).

Pizza Hut Case

...clients Pizza Hut Case Justification of tax position September 23, 2013 Question: Could I have justified the position taken on the tax return from an ethical standpoint? Explain… First, the 7th district court asserts that C&F failed to claim why it voluntarily treated some of the money received from IBP as ordinary income if all such claims necessarily net capital gains. To this I would respond, C&F did make a claim for the treatment. C&F estimated that 2.86 million in revenue was lost due to the damaged (misappropriated) trade secret, thus the treatment of that amount as ordinary income. This means that the remaining balance from the initial lawsuit (IBP) would go beyond the dollar value of revenue that C&F lost, constituting a gain on a capital asset. It follow then that any funds received for any further suits that were engaged before the conclusion of the IBP case, but in relation to it would be applied in the same manner. So, because the amount of income that was estimated to be lost has already been recovered in the first lawsuit anything received from that point on would also be considered capital gain on a capital asset. I would also assert that the IRS did not object to the estimate of 2.86 million in revenue for the first suit and that they were seemingly comfortable allowing the remainder of that balance to be considered capital gain. Secondly, the 7th district court goes on to state that at the date of misappropriation......

Pizza Hut

...introducing us all to some crazy new ideas and ones that just might work. But before we dive into all of that, it’s time for lunch. Luckily we can order a pizza from Pizza Hut without breaking our keyboard stride. Pizza Hut is celebrating 20 years of online ordering at CES and that just sounds wrong. 20 years?! Back in 1994, they launched their first digital ordering hub called “PizzaNet.” The first-ever online order was a large pepperoni, mushroom and extra cheese pizza and they’ve been going strong ever since. So strong that they think of themselves as an ecommerce company – 40% of their orders come through the online system, 50% from mobile. Caroline Masullo, Pizza Hut’s director of digital experience told the LATimes that people were surprised to see a pizza company at CES but they shouldn’t be. “If you’re going to be a big e-commerce player, this is the place to be. This is where all the companies are, and we need to be on the cutting edge for our consumers’ sake. So I think we should always have a presence.” All kidding aside, the ability to order a pizza 7-days in advance is as radical as a car that reads your email to you while you drive. Both help you get things done more efficiently and ordering a pizza online is a lot safer than email in the car. Heck, you can probably order a pizza from your car using one of Pizza Hut’s dedicated apps. This past year, they added created an ordering app for the XBox360 giving gamers one less excuse to stop playing. Now,......
