The Pizza Hut flagship store at SM Mall of Asia was recently unveiled. The grand opening was attended by top executives and Pizza Hut Brand Ambassador, Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Rachel Peters. The newly opened store is the biggest store in the country, offering a new concept of dining with unique features and topnotch service.
The all-new Pizza Hut SM Mall of Asia has a totally new look and feel when compared to the other stores. I’d like to believe that soon, other branches will be sporting this new look as well. I love that it’s spacious, and has that totally casual feel to it.
I think it’s about time that they update the restaurant look. The pizza chain which started in 1984 in the Philippines has maintained the same look throughout the years. The Pizza Hut flagship store at SM Mall of Asia is definitely a step in the right direction.
There’s no doubt that Pizza Hut is the world’s largest pizza chain. I’m sure Frank and Dan Carney, the ones who started the small pizza restaurant in Wichita, Kansas, are proud of what they’ve accomplished. I learned that the founders borrowed $600 from their mother to open the restaurant in 1958. Now, Pizza Hut has more than 15,600 restaurants in 90 countries.
In the Philippines, there are Dine-in Restaurants, Delivery Units, and Express Counters in Metro Manila and surrounding provinces, including Visayas and Mindanao. Aside from pizza, their menu has grown to include pasta, fried chicken, salad, and more. Pizza Hut is a family favorite; I remember dropping by with my family after church when I was younger.
As far as food is concerned, Pizza Hut has always been known for its penchant for keeping up with the times. With the newly renovated restaurant at SM Mall of Asia, the famed pizza chain is doing away with the rather formal dining experience of yore and switching to an all-new concept of fast casual dining that is easy to access and avail of. “What we are offering in our new flagship store at SM Mall of Asia is a more immediate and less tedious dining concept,” says Lorent Adrias, Chief Marketing Officer of Philippine Pizza Inc. ’
“The move to renovate and make the store in SM Mall of Asia bigger, better, and a venue to experience the total pizza experience is also made possible by Pizza Hut’s strong partnership with SM Prime Holdings, Inc, SM’s mall subsidiary,” adds Adrias.
A fast casual dine in store heightens the whole pizza experience with faster ordering and serving services which also means comfort and convenience for its customers. The new Pizza Hut SM MOA also offers new services like a coffee and dessert bar to satisfy dessert cravings and a unique merchandising area where PH fans can purchase limited edition shirts and caps.
The new store can hold as much as 175 people at the same time and features a show kitchen where customers get a first-hand look at how their well-loved pizzas are prepared. Pizza Hut pizzas are guaranteed made fresh every day.
The new store located at Level 1 Main Mall Entrance also comes with an all-new look. It’s inviting, comforting, never intimidating. It should appeal to millennials, aside from the already strong market composed of families, friends, and officemates.
I find the Pizza Hut flagship store at the SM MOA a nice place to dine with family and friends. It’s spot on as far as the new brand essence which is doing everything “For the Love of Pizza.” For more information, you can follow them on Facebook facebook.com/pizzahutphilippines or visit the website at www.pizzahut.com.ph.
