Wytheville’s Pizza Hut will re-locate to the Wytheville Commons shopping center across from Wal-Mart, and will open before Dec. 15. The restaurant will occupy the two end shops opposite Dollar Tree, in the space previously occupied by That’s My Dress.

“We will have dine-in, carryout, delivery and a pickup window,” said Katie Lenko, general manager of the Wytheville restaurant. “It will be up-to-date and modern with all the bells and whistles that Pizza Hut has to offer.”

The new restaurant will continue to offer its popular buffet and salad bar.

Pizza Hut has more than 16,000 locations is 100 countries and employs more than 350,000 people, according to its website. The restaurant chain was founded in 1958 by brothers Dan and Frank Carney, who borrowed $600 from their parents to open a pizza restaurant in Wichita, Kansas. They named it Pizza Hut because their sign only had room for eight letters.
