Pizza Hut commenced operations in 1955. Its first logo was its former mascot, Pete, holding the words Pizza and Hut.
In 1974, Pizza Hut began using the now classic logo which features the famous 'red roof' icon which is still used, in a modified form, today. Also, the signature roof for new (and updated) restaurants at the time was changed from brown to red.
In November 1999, Pizza Hut introduced a new logo similar to the previous one, but a different font for "Pizza Hut" was introduced and the "i" had a green dot put on it and a yellow underline beneath the wordmark. New and renovated restaurants since this logo no longer use the "Red Roof" design, instead use the new branding (later known as "WingStreet" since 2003) with larger square feet, larger seating capacity, modern interior features, pick-up window for carry-out orders, and free Wi-Fi. However, some renovated restaurants still retain the shape of the previous design, but newer exterior paneling and modernized interior features, and some un-renovated "Red Roof" restaurants only updated to this logo.
Another variant of the prototype logo with just the 'red roof' and 'The Hut' which was used during a proposed rebranding of the restaurant.
In 2010, the red roof was given a glossy look, and the text was modified. The old logo is still on older locations.
February 2014-November 2014
In February 2014, the yellow stripe and the green dot on the 'i' were eliminated from the logo and the wordmark was moved down further from the symbol. This change was made possibly to make it look like the 1974 logo. The previous logo is still being used as an alternate logo.
On November 10, 2014, Pizza Hut announced a major change to their menu and the look of their restaurants. They also announced a new logo and new box, both which launched on November 19, 2014.
The logo consists of the February 2014 logo in white, on a stylish paintbrush stroke-looking red circle. However, on boxes, the logo only has the white roof inside the circle.
