Pizza Hut Restaurants has unveiled a £313,572 restaurant makeover at its Stratford-upon-Avon Hut at The Maybird Retail Park, creating 10 new jobs for the area.
The re-opening is part of a multi-million pound nationwide redesign programme by the casual dining company. A brand new, exciting menu will also be rolled out in the revamped Hut that includes new additions such as the sweet chilli chicken pizza, chicken wings, Kentucky style BBQ ribs, and American style waffles.
All of Pizza Hut Restaurants’ famous icons – including the Ice Cream Factory, Salad Station and Buffet – still take centre stage, but form part of the new, interactive design that includes a central preparation station offering a range of desserts including warm cookie dough, and a self-service soft drinks hub allowing guests to refill drinks at their leisure.
Restaurant Manager Toby Adams said: “The new makeover looks incredible. We’ve created a real fun and welcoming atmosphere with lots of new design elements including a stand out feature wall and funky lighting scheme. There’s also a new outdoor seating area, where guests will be able to enjoy a meal during the summer months.
“On top of that, we’ve got a tasty new menu too with lots of treats to try like our chicken wings and chocolate chunk cheesecake.”
Hut Team Member, Louise Thompson, added: “I was really excited to unveil the new Hut. We love the makeover – it’s made such a difference to the customer experience with cool new booths that are ideal for families and groups of friends. Plus we have some delicious new menu items. I’d definitely recommend the sweet chilli chicken pizza– it’s delicious.”
The investment in Stratford-upon-Avon is part of a broader £60 million refurbishment and restructuring programme for the business, secured through private equity investment from Rutland Partners in late 2012.
