Pizza Hut commenced operations in 1958. Its first logo was its former mascot, Pete, holding the words Pizza and Hut.
In 1968, 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 late 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. As of 2010, this is currently being used as a secondary logo.
This logo was only used at a series of prototype locations in Peoria, IL and Peoria Heights, IL only. This was a concept logo used during a proposed reformatting of the restaurant chain to being exclusively a carry-out chain. This logo was removed from the prototype locations in 2015 and replaced with the 2014 logo.
Another variant of the prototype logo with just the red roof and the wordmark "The Hut" which was used during a proposed rebranding of the restaurant.
In February 2010, the red roof was given a glossy look, and the text was modified. This logo is still used at some locations.
In February 2014, the yellow stripe at the bottom of the wordmark and the green dot on the "i" were dropped from the logo and the wordmark 1968 was moved down further from the symbol. This change was made possibly to make it look like the 1974 logo.
A horizontal version of the logo, used on storefronts, with the current slogan. The slogan was brought back after originally used in the 1990's
