BREAKING NEWS

Oldest Pizza Hut Closing In Manhattan

KSAL StaffJuly 22, 2015

A Pizza Hut in Manhattan that has been at its original location longer than any Pizza Hut in the nation will close this weekend.

Company officials announced Tuesday the Pizza Hut in Manhattan’s Aggieville will close at 11 p.m. Sunday. It began operating there in 1960.

Employees at the restaurant were offered new jobs and all other Pizza Hut restaurants in the Manhattan region will remain open.

Co-founder Bernie Butler said in a news release that the Aggieville location is closing because it is not designed to handle increasing preferences for delivery over dine-in service.

Pizza Hut was founded in 1958 by two Wichita State University students. After the original Pizza Hut in Wichita moved, the Manhattan location became the oldest still operating at its original site.
