The world’s largest restaurant group is serving up exciting new Canadian Pizza Hut delivery franchise opportunities.

Yum! Restaurants Canada confirmed today it is accelerating development of its delivery franchise model.  The company will be making dozens of new trade areas available across Canada.

“Pizza Hut is the largest global pizza brand in the world.  We are excited about the opportunity to bring more franchisees into the system to continue our success” explains Doug Heinrich, Sr. Director of Development for Pizza Hut. 

“Our franchisees are attracted to our brands in part due to the ability to become multi-unit operators quickly.”

Pizza Hut delivery franchises typically require between 900 square feet and 1,200 square feet of occupancy space and are equipped with our back-of-house equipment systems, including high speed pizza ovens to create Pizza Hut’s famous pan pizzas, stuffed crusts, and Tuscani oven-baked pastas, as well as fryers to prepare WingStreet wings.

As part of the Yum! Restaurants International family, Pizza Hut franchisees can leverage the marketing and operational know-how of a strong global company that has more than 13,000 franchised restaurants around the globe.

“We are able to pull from the best practices of our Pizza Hut businesses across the globe, which we see as a key advantage for us here in Canada,” says Heinrich, adding that Pizza Hut Canada has more than 300 delivery and dine-in restaurants from coast-to-coast.
