PIZZA HUT RESTAURANTS RE OPEN FOR BUSINESS
Pizza Hut Zambia is pleased to announce that all of our restaurants are reopen for business after
having worked closely with the Lusaka City Council (LCC). We would like to thank the LCC for its
vigilance and dedication to upholding standards for all food outlets in Lusaka.
Pizza Hut would like to once again apologise to our customers for the recent closure of our Lusaka
restaurants, where expired stock was found on some of our premises by the LCC. Food safety is
always the top priority at Pizza Hut and a primary focus in all Pizza Hut restaurants around the world.
Pizza Hut has strict food & safety protocols with regards to expired stock as well as the labelling and
disposal thereof, which will, because of the recent store closures, be monitored far more closely to
ensure the full compliance to the global and LCC food & safety regulations. This will include
continued training of staff members to ensure that the rigorous standards and surveillance routines
are adhered to.
Pizza Hut is committed as it always has been to serve our customers with our freshly prepared, made
from scratch world famous Pizza’s, and will continue to work closely with the LCC to ensure best
practice in Lusaka and in Zambia for the food industry.
We thank our loyal customers for their patience and continued support and look forward to serving
you soon as each of the over 80 members of our family work tirelessly to be Zambia’s most loved
Pizza restaurant.
