I don’t yet know how many Pizza Hut restaurants have closed and I have not yet confirmed why they are closing, or if the closings are permanent. One employee suggested a franchisee bankruptcy.
There is no answer at the Grand Rapids or Hibbing Pizza Hut locations at this hour.
UPDATE: Superior, Wis., and Two Harbors are also closed. I’ve heard reports of other pizza hut locations closing all over the state. Individual locations are sometimes indicating that they will open sometime this year under new management.
