Pizza Hut parent hopes Wing Street lifts sales

According to a news report from www.dallasnews.com, “The parent of Dallas-based Pizza Hut is counting on a wing and a plan to boost sales at the pizza restaurants.”

“Speaking to analysts early Tuesday, David C. Novak, chairman and chief executive of Louisville-based Yum Brands Inc., said he met recently with Pizza Hut franchise leaders to encourage adding Yum’s Wing Street chicken operations to more restaurants,” said the story. “We want to really leverage our Wing Street brand on a national basis,” Mr. Novak said a day after Yum posted a 17 percent gain in third-quarter earnings. “That gives us a chicken platform at Pizza Hut that we’ve never had before.” The company did not break out revenue and income numbers for Pizza Hut but said the entire company’s same-store sales were off 1 percent in the United States due largely to a 6 percent decline at Taco Bell.”
