A brookley style pizza is coming in Australia, but not to the UK, as promised.
PizzaHut.com is taking a stab at the pie in Australia.
“We’re not here to compete with the UK,” Pizza Hut Australia general manager Steve Johnson told Fairfax Media.
We’re going to be the first pizzerias to open up in Australia.
“Pizza House Pizza is one of four new pizza restaurants coming to the Australian market.
And Pizza Hut is not the only chain trying to get a foothold in Australia’s pizza culture.
Last year, Pizza Hut opened its first Australian location in Adelaide, which has since become the nation’s biggest city.
Other local pizza chains include Pie Pizza and Pizza Hut in Melbourne, Pizza Pizza and Domino’s Pizza in Sydney, Pizza Huts in Adelaide and Pizza Hutt in Brisbane.
In Melbourne, the city’s biggest pizza chain has opened its own outpost in the Melbourne University Mall.
While many pizza chains are taking advantage of the global pie boom, PizzaHut is aiming to be Australia’s first international pizza chain, with a focus on serving “the freshest and best” pies.
Johnson said Pizza Hut would be opening its first retail store in Sydney’s CBD in 2021.
The chain is aiming for a 30 per cent growth in revenue by 2021, he said.
But it’s not just a business move.
It’s about creating a community.
He said it was a way to support the Australian community, which is already thriving.
I think the whole concept of Pizza Hut was to give a voice to a lot of our neighbours who are in the industry who are struggling to make ends meet.
That’s a real community service and that’s what we are doing here, Johnson said.”
This is not just about one person in one pizza shop.
We are working with a very dedicated group of people who are passionate about this and who want to be part of it.
“The pizza chain is also working with other pizza chains in other countries, including in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain and Austria.
For the moment, PizzaHouse is only offering the UK in its store, but plans to expand.
As for its Australia plans, Johnson did not rule it out, saying: “We are definitely going to expand in Australia and will certainly be expanding globally in the future.”
Pizzagate is a global conspiracy theory about a paedophile ring operating in the U.S. based on a purported video from a “person of interest” in the case.
A 2016 video emerged in which the alleged “person” in question claims to have video evidence that links Comet Ping Pong and the Comet Ping pong restaurant to a child sex ring operating out of the pizzeria.
Comet Ping Pongs founder James Alefantis has repeatedly denied the claims and the restaurant has denied any involvement.
The pizzeria’s parent company, which also owns the popular New York City-based pizza chain Pizza Hut, has been accused of a pattern of sexual harassment and assault by former employees and has hired an outside law firm to investigate.
New Zealand authorities say they have launched a probe into the allegations, but have so far been unable to identify anyone in the US or the UK who might have been involved.
