How Much Does It Cost to Open a Pizza Hut?

Thinking of jumping into the franchising world with a Pizza Hut location? There are investment types and options to consider before taking the plunge.

Pizza Hut is a giant in the franchising industry whose origins date back to 1958 in Wichita, Kansas. The fast-casual dining brand is still growing, with opportunities available in markets all over the country. If you’re thinking of spreading your entrepreneurial wings and investing in a unit, there are some considerations to make before signing on the dotted line. 

The cost to open a Pizza Hut franchise ranges from $40,600 to $2,063,500. The price range is so vast because there are two different opportunities: traditional and non-traditional units.

Potential franchisees interested in opening a Pizza Hut location will want to consider if they would like a stand-alone restaurant or would like to invest in a unit that is within an existing structure, such a convenience store or grocery store.

Additional fees and ongoing costs associated with becoming a Pizza Hut include an initial franchise fee, a monthly service fee of 6% of gross sales and a national advertising fee of 4.75% of gross sales.
