Did you know that Pizza Hut was founded by two college students? Ha! Why does that not surprise me? From Wikipedia:

Pizza Hut was founded in 1958 by two Wichita State University students, Frank and Dan Carney, as a single location in Wichita, Kansas.[8] The oldest continuously operating Pizza Hut in the world is in Manhattan, Kansas, in a shopping and tavern district known as Aggieville near Kansas State University. The first Pizza Hut restaurant east of the Mississippi was opened in Athens, Ohio in 1966 by Lawrence Berberick and Gary Meyers.

Pizza Hut's international presence includes Canada and Mexico in North America, India, Bangladesh, United Kingdom, Costa Rica, Ecuador Nicaragua, Pakistan, and its Asian presence includes The Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong, and Macau.

Pizza Hut was one of the first American franchises to open in Iraq.
