NPC agreed to modify its restaurants to accommodate those with disabilities. The Pittsburg, Kansas, company, which recently said it would be acquired by Merrill Lynch's private-equity arm, operates 800 Pizza Hut outlets in 25 states.
The DoJ had conducted compliance reviews of the restaurants and found violations of the disabilities act at a number of the facilities. The pact covers parking lots, entrances, seating areas, restrooms and other spaces at the restaurants. It also ensures that NPC will work with its landlords at the properties it doesn't actually own to bring those facilities up to code, MarketWatch reports.
Pizza Hut is owned by Yum Brands
