Pizza Hut to open first outlet in Zimbabwe

Opening on February 2, 2018, the launch is likely to increase competition in the country's fast food retail business.

The new launch is in partnership with local Zimbabwean company Silicoade Capital which owns the franchise for Pizza Hut and Ster-Kinekor Zim.

Pizza Hut Zimbabwe said it was motivated to bring its business to Zimbabwe by the country's potential for growth. The company said the amount and size of its investment will depend on the success of its first outlet, which would be opened at Sam Levy's Village Shopping Mall in Borrowdale, Harare.

"Pizza Hut and its parent company Yum! Brands see Zimbabwe as a strategically integral market to its expansion across Africa. The Zimbabwean market has displayed large potential for growth despite economic challenges. We will open as many as possible depending on the success of the first few Pizza Hut outlets."
