Ranked amongst the Top 2 largest food chain in Malaysia, Pizza Hut Strengthens Its Position as Malaysia’s No.1 Pizza Chain

Shah Alam, 26 April 2019 – Pizza Hut Malaysia (“Pizza Hut”) today officiated its 400th store in i-City Shah Alam, marking a brand-new milestone for the No. 1 pizza chain in Malaysia. With almost double the stores of its closest competitor, the 400-hut strong pizza chain is also amongst the top two largest food chains in the country, at present. Pizza Hut continues to take on the leadership role in the industry through innovation in the digital space by occupying the No.1 spot in the pizza ordering app.

At the celebration of its monumental hut opening, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azahari Mohamed Kamil, Managing Director, QSR Brands said, “Today is not just about the opening of a new store. This in fact denotes Pizza Hut’s steadfast growth over the years which has been nothing short of stellar. The steep growth in earning Malaysians’ love has resulted incremental revenue through both our physical stores and digital platforms, especially these past two years. It has been very promising for both Pizza Hut and the overall QSR Brands and, gives us the assurance and confidence that we are on the right track with our expansion strategy!”

Echoing the same sentiments, Loi Liang Tok, COO Pizza Hut Restaurants added, “At the heart of everything we do, Pizza Hut aims to identify ways for our customers to have easier access to better pizzas. In line with that, Pizza Hut aspires to reach 408 stores by the end of 2019 and is well on its way to open a minimum of 60 new stores in the next three years. The opening of the new stores will cover untapped regional locations in Sabah, Sarawak, Perak and Penang to further extend Pizza Hut’s offerings to everyone across the country. This strategic move is aimed to further catapult our growth to greater heights.”

In addition to the expansion plans, Pizza Hut in fulfilling its pledge to continue serving the best pizza experience to Malaysians, has enhanced over 50% of its current stores now. This is achieved over these past two years, a testament of Pizza Hut’s commitment and strong focus to stay ahead of the competition with the best experience. Beyond that, the upgraded recipe of its signature Pan Pizza launched late last year has also been a key contributor to its steadfast pan pizza sales.

“As Pizza Hut continues to evolve with Malaysians’ needs and preference, we aim to provide our customers with easier access to better pizzas. The expansion of offerings through our new store format and the enhancements of our existing stores enable us to up our ante in staying relevant and, help us to serve our community better, while offering vibrant dining experiences and staying delightful,” added Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azahari Mohamed Kamil.

In conjunction with its 400th hut opening, Pizza Hut wishes to deliver more smiles to Malaysians. It will be offering its personal pizza at RM4.00 from now till 30 April 2019. It will also be giving 4000 pizzas to commemorate its significant milestone. Leading up to the celebrations, it also took the opportunity to give back to the community by delivering 400 pizzas to 10 charitable organisations within the Klang Valley.
