Pizza Hut is closing hundreds of its dine-in stores as it focuses more on carryout and delivery.
According to Yum! Brands, Pizza Hut's parent company, there are 7,496 restaurants in the United States.
"Pizza Hut continues to develop tailored action plans for our largest dine-in markets, while at the same time transforming the estate for a more compelling off-premise focused asset strategy," Greg Creed, CEO of Yum! Brands, said during the company's earnings call on Aug. 1, according to Today.com.
