New Sydney Waterloo restaurant the first of its kind in the country.
Pizza Hut has leased a new restaurant at Divercity Village in Waterloo, Sydney; the first of a number of restaurants to be rolled out throughout Australia by the fast-food chain.
The negotiations for the 130/m2 space, which were handled by Colliers International, signal the dawning of a new era by Pizza Hut.
“Pizza Hut has remodelled the design and menu of previous buffet restaurants to fit the current fast/casual Australian dining scene,” said Joshua Bush, Retail Leasing Executive at Colliers International, who leased the space to Pizza Hut.
“Waterloo in Sydney is the perfect place for the first of the new restaurants; with a growing population and lack of quality retail amenity, Pizza Hut plans to capitalise on one of Australia’s most exciting retail growth precincts.”
“This move will be a massive revitalisation for the brand, and really cement their place in the casual dining space; they are looking at a sit-down concept and 50-seater restaurants with tapas-style menus and other innovative concepts.”
Pizza Hut Australia Chief Operating Office Chris Leslie says the Waterloo site was the perfect place to relaunch the 47-year old brand in Australia.
“The inner-city location means people are looking for fast, quality dining options. Our new store has late opening hours, a licenced bar area, exclusive menu choices and some modern twists on classic Pizza Hut favourites, such as the Dessert Hut.”
“This is the first in a series of openings for the brand across the country. Pizza Hut is back,” Mr Leslie said.
