£1.2m Investment In Pizza Hut NI With All The Toppings In New Jobs
Country’s only Pizza Hut to get a new home with plans for three new venues
Northern Ireland’s only Pizza Hut has completed a £500,000 expansion, in new premises on Belfast’s Ormeau Road, adding a sit-in dining experience to the existing delivery and collection options.
New kitchen, fixtures and fittings are in place, with five more jobs being added to the existing 10 staff members.
Owner, Sandeep Sharma explained that this is the first stage in a planned expansion of the Pizza Hut presence in Northern Ireland.
“There is a demand for the quality, menus and fun of the Pizza Hut experience,” he said.
“The ability to offer that to sit in and dine was an obvious step.
“I plan to make a further investment with three more over the next two years that will represent a total investment of £1.2m in Belfast and the greater Belfast area.”
The expanded premises will also include extended opening hours from 12pm to 2am, as well as a restaurant liquor licence enabling it to offer a range of wines and beers to the existing soft drink options.
“We will be able to seat up to 25 people at a time in the new premises, and we will be offering an extended range of offers to the current fantastic Pizza Hut range of choices,” said Mr Sharma.
With fresh dough made daily on site everyday quality is guaranteed, and as well as the pizzas there will be all the traditional sides on offer such as chicken wings, cheese bits, pasta, cookies, as well as desserts and ice cream.
“For me and my customers Pizza Hut represents convenient, quality food,” said the Belfast-based entrepreneur.
“We are already expanding the offers and deals, to make it affordable.
“The new Peri-Peri chicken pizza and stuffed crust is proving a hit, and weekday deals such as Two for Tuesdays, and Monday Madness will continue.
“And, no, we don't judge people who want pineapple on their pizza.”
