Coronavirus: Find out if your local Pizza Hut is among those closing down

A list of Pizza Hut restaurants that are to close permanently has been revealed in the wake of restructuring plans announced this week.

The company said on Wednesday that 29 of its 245 outlets were to go – placing 450 of its 5,500 staff at risk of losing their job – as it aimed to secure its future following the coronavirus lockdown.

It made the announcement shortly after a report by Sky News said the company – the main franchisee of the Pizza Hut brand and separate to Pizza Hut UK – was proposing to change the way it pays landlords under its rescue plans.

News of the closures were made just days after rival Pizza Express secured approval for the closure of 73 of its own
sites, hitting 1,100 workers.
