Published on: Friday, May 19, 2017

Kuala Lumpur: The operator of Pizza Hut, QSR Brands (M) Holdings Bhd, plans to upgrade its 221 dine-in restaurants over the next two years, as part of its re-branding activity in conjunction with Pizza Hut's 35th anniversary.

QSR Brands Chief Executive Officer Merrill Pereyra said Pizza Hut currently had close to 400 outlets, nationwide.

"So far, we have upgraded more than 50 restaurants and we will also conduct 100 per cent asset enhancement in all 221 restaurants," he told a press conference after Pizza Hut's 35th anniversary celebrations here Thursday.

Pereyra said the company planned to enhance dining experience at its restaurants as the segment was not only its core business but also made Pizza Hut stand out from its competitors.

He, however, declined to elaborate on the capital expenditure for the upgrading exercise but said the company had allocated enough for the purpose.

When asked on possibilities of new openings for this year, Pereyra said the company planned to spend the next couple of years to re-brand Pizza Hut and the exercise would include a new logo, website and also a new mobile application.

The website was launched on May 5 and we are already seeing nearly 100 per cent increase in visits and 150 per cent increase in new users. – Bernama
