Pizza Hut Completes its Largest Ever Restaurant Refurbishment

Pizza Hut has unveiled its massive £785,000 overhaul of its flagship Ashford branch at Eureka Leisure Park, the first makeover of its kind in the chain’s history.  


The re-opening forms part of the brand’s multi-million pound nationwide redesign programme, and has subsequently created 10 new jobs at the new look Ashford site. 


Alongside a revamped interior, which includes a contemporary cocktail bar and, for the first four weeks after opening anyway, an outdoor popup bar, is a brand new menu which includes the new Ultimate Thin pizza - featuring their thinnest ever crust – frickles (fried pickles), and American style waffles.


One of the aims behind the refurbishment was to turn the Ashford site into a popular evening destination, offering a wider customer base a unique Hut experience. 


And to enhance diners’ experience even further, staff have received education on the art of cocktail making, including which cocktails complement new menu items. They’ve also been trained in preparing some of the country’s favourite hard shakes and cocktails, such as the Mojito and Margarita. 


Diners will still be able to find Hut’s famous Ice Cream Factory, Salad Station, and buffet after the refit. However, the facilities are now part of a new interactive design which includes a central preparation station and self-service drinks hub that allows guests to refill drinks at their leisure.
