Pizza Hut commenced operations in 1955. Its first logo was its former mascot, Pete, holding the words Pizza and Hut.
In 1976, 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 2000, Pizza Hut introduced a new logo similar to the previous one, but with a different font for "Pizza Hut" and the "i" now has a green dot in it and a yellow underline. 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.
This logo is only used at a series of prototype locations in Peoria, IL and Peoria Heights, IL only. Sometimes a variant of this logo is used where it just uses the 'red roof' and 'The Hut' which was used during a proposed rebranding of the restaurant chain.
In 2011, the red roof was given a glossy look, and the text is modified. The old logo is still on older locations.
