Pizza Hut unveils £237,000 makeover at Wigan restaurant

It creates 10 new jobs for the area.

The re-opening is part of a multi-million pound nationwide redesign programme by the casual dining company. Guests will see new, interactive design that includes a central preparation station offering a range of desserts including warm cookie dough, and a self-service soft drinks hub allowing guests to refill drinks at their leisure. A brand new menu will also be rolled out in the revamped Hut which includes chicken wings, Kentucky style BBQ ribs and new additions to its warm cookie dough.

Restaurant manager Sharon O’Grady said, “We are all so impressed by the new makeover. Now the Hut is much more fun and vibrant with cool wall paintings and a funky new lighting scheme. It’s definitely the perfect place for both families and groups of friends to enjoy a meal.”

Hut team member Olivia Lancaster-Pierce said, “The new Hut looks amazing! We’re all super excited to show it off to our guests and hear what they think of all of the new design elements. Plus, we’ve introduced a new menu to shake things up. The S’Mores Cookie Dough is really tasty and guests should definitely try milkshakes too!”

The investment in Wigan is part of a broader £60 million refurbishment and restructuring programme for the business, secured through private equity investment from Rutland Partners in late 2012.

Pizza Hut Restaurants’ newly redesigned Hut can be found at: No 2. Anjou Boulevard, Robin Park, Wigan, Lancashire, WN5 0UJ
