Large-scale delivery: First Pizza Hut takes a trip on campus
The original Pizza Hut building was moved Monday morning from one end of Wichita State University to the Innovation Campus.
Plans call for the building to become a museum, which will house a collection of Pizza Hut memorabilia.
The building moved from its first site at Kellogg and Bluff to WSU in 1986. Wichita brothers Dan and Frank Carney started Pizza Hut in 1958.
“It was the birthplace of the Pizza Hut,” Dan Carney told the Wichita Eagle earlier this year. “It was a little 500-square-foot building that started the chain.”
Dan Carney was on campus Monday with his family to watch the move.
