With two locations to serve you in Collingwood 705.444.6666 and in Stayner 705.428.8888 the story of how Pizza Hut all started is a great read. The legacy of Pizza Hut® began in 1958, when two college students from Wichita, Kansas, Frank and Dan Carney; were approached by a family friend with the idea of opening a pizza parlor. Although the concept was relatively new to many Americans at that time, the brothers quickly saw the potential of this new enterprise. After borrowing $600(US) from their mother; they purchased some second-hand equipment and rented a small building on a busy intersection in their home town. The result of their entrepreneurial efforts was the first Pizza Hut® restaurant; and the foundation for what would become the largest and most successful pizza restaurant in the world.
