I have a UTBAPH near me that is now a lovely italian restaurant with great food.

PIZZA HUT... EVOLVE!

Pizza Hut pizza is to every other chain restaurant pizza as Chicago-style pizza is to New York.

This just in:  It's cheaper to lease a vacant commercial space than it is to have a new one built.

I like this because you aren't revealing your true opinion. Which way does the scale go? Who knows? Everybody who likes any pizza has an opportunity to disagree with you.

Look at the stain on the left hand side of the building, think WWII era

There's a good (really - actually GOOD) pan-asian restaurant in Wilmington NC that appears to be in an ex-hut dine-in.

Most of the old Pizza Hut buildings around here are now Chinese restaurants.

We do still have one Pizza Hut that is in the old red hut building, though.

Are you talking about Manchester, NH? The one that was once an Italian-Chinese restaurant called Ciao Mein?

There's another former PH in Hooksett, NH that's been repainted with an ugly blue roof. It's now some kind of doctor's office, but if you've lived here long enough, you remember what it used to be.

There are a couple of UTBAPH's in my neck of the woods that are Pizza Huts.

Not all franchises abondoned their buildings I guess.

This guy is clearly on a mission from a pizza oriented deity.  Obscure as it, he is actually chronicling history in a limited sense.  There appears to be no personal stake in this which makes it odder.

Dachau's actually a town you know. They've got just as much right to shiatty fast food as everybody else, and they need to feed the tourists while they're at it.

oh no

CSB time: A friend of mine near the end of high school had an abandoned shopping center just up the road, with an abandoned Pizza Hut building too. There was tons of stuff in there that was left behind. We used to go in there, get high and explore/rummage through/smash things. It was totally the bomb.

Obviously these buildings attract the kind of tenants that aren't going to spring for a whole lot of remodeling.

Apparently Pizza Hut is going to sell pizza by the slice. They kept emphasizing the word "speed" over and over again. I guess you can't smoke pot in a pizza place anymore, you have to take PCP or other uppers.

Yes, the town. No good place to eat within the concentration camp. I just thought it was amusing that this was the first thing I saw getting off the train at Frauenhoferstrasse; those small pictures on the right are of the concentration camp, so I took this as a corporate endorsement.

You understand that the whole horror of the thing is that these camps were in perfectly normal Central European towns that people lived in, blissfully and and increasingly willfully ignorant of what was going on?

So the next time you're going about your life and say 'I don't even wanna know about X', give it some thought.
 
2014-01-13 11:36:16 PM
I don't get it. I mean, "you can't hide"? Who the fark cares?

And when did Pizza Hut "abandon" the "red hut" look? We've still got those here in spades.
 
2014-01-13 11:36:28 PM
Pizza Hut may not have the best pizza, but their breadsticks are amazing. Best chain pizza breadsticks hands down.

It's always weird seeing an old Pizza Hut as a cash for gold shop or a payday loan place.

This thread reminds that there is an abandoned IHOP 1970's Swiss chalet style a few miles from me (Winston, NC) that is set to be destroyed.  This architectural wonder of flapjacks will not be forgotten! Fire up the Polaroids Leroy.

I remember all of the Sea Galley restaurants with their ship portal windows.  Most of 'em went under and were turned into Chinese buffets.  I remember some of those restaurants keeping the old portal windows for a couple of decades before remodeling.
