Thread: Pizza Hut makes a name change

  1. #1

    Pizza Hut makes a name change

    Being an avid Star Wars fan, this new name brings some pretty nasty imagery to mind. *shudder* Bad move, Pizza Hut!

    Blame recession cuts. Pizza Hut is slicing the "pizza" from its store name on its boxes and some store signs. The fast food chain will now brand some stores as "The Hut."

    However, contrary to earlier reports, the iconic chain won't be changing its name, a Pizza Hut spokesman said Friday. The boxes and some store signs will say "The Hut." Others will retain the Pizza Hut name.

    Agreed. They've pumped millions into branding over several decades! This just doesn't seem rational!

    Pizza Hut has recently expanded its menu beyond pizza to include pasta, giving it some reason to alter its branding.
    Weird, because their main menu is pizza.

    Rather bizarre "Pizza hut" & "The hut" cant see 2 letters saving them enough money to make this type of move. Considering they now have to inform the public they are the same place and then brand a whole new name. Why have any writing at all on the boxes, napkins, bags, etc Look are place like Taco Bell they use plain color bags and brown napkins no branding on them.

    Seems this would cost more then it would save.

    Could be worse. Could be Pizza the Hut. But Mel Brooks may actually have the copyright on that.

    Pizza Hut would be better than 'The Hut', but if it's their choice, they need to do it

    Why don't they just add 10c to the Pizza's and who's gonna remember them as The Hut.

    It costs them more to change the name than it would be to just leave it alone Why spend money on something you don't have to?
