Pizza Hut selects franchisees who have a solid restaurant or retail management experience. The company's franchise Owners must commit to opening at least two locations and ideally have eyes to open at least five Pizza Huts in as many years. The franchisees who are selected will complete a training program in Dallas, Texas for over two months. Currently, Pizza Hut has a particular focus on building and growing franchises in New York, Massachusetts, Washington D.C., Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.
