Pizza Hut Could Reopen In Lebanon In 6 Months

Yum! Brands, Inc.

Lebanon could see the return of the international pizza franchise, Pizza Hut, in as soon as 6 months after it recently bid everyone farewell.

On Sunday, Pizza Hut posted a heartfelt message on social media announcing its reluctant closure in Lebanon. “Until we make new memories,” read one of the posts.

The restaurant chain had no choice but to shut its doors for an undisclosed period of time as its faced difficulties in the country’s ongoing economic crisis

In an interview with Arab News, Pizza Hut Lebanon’s General Manager, Riad Sabbagh, said that the chain could reopen in 6 months with the help of a Lebanese investor based in Africa. 

“We faced an issue in importing our raw materials and transferring our money abroad and we tried to resist the pandemic impact as much as possible,” he told Arab News.

Under the leadership of this unnamed Lebanese expatriate investor, who is experienced in the restaurant field in Africa, Pizza Hut might see its grand revival sooner than anyone thought.
