A Stevenage restaurant has just undergone a quarter of a million pound makeover which has created 15 new jobs.
Pizza Hut on Stevenage Leisure Park was closed for two weeks for the refurbishment, which is part of a multi-million pound building programme across the company’s UK restaurants. The Stevenage site is the first new look restaurant to re-open in Hertfordshire, following its £260,000 investment.
All of Pizza Hut restaurants’ famous icons – including the Ice Cream Factory, salad station and buffet – are put centre stage as part of a new, interactive design, showcasing the fresh food and vibrant atmosphere.
In addition to the Ice Cream Factory, a central preparation station offers a range of desserts including warm cookie dough, a waffle machine, speciality drinks, and a self-service soft drinks hub allowing guests to refill drinks at their leisure. A brand new menu includes the introduction of ribs, wings and fries, to appeal to a wide range of customer tastes.
The redesigned restaurant offers guests a more open and inviting dining space, and also benefits from enhanced lighting schemes and bolder external facades, signalling the new dining experience.
Pizza Hut restaurants MD, Jens Hofma said: “Stevenage is a really important site for our business and this investment is key to the future of Pizza Hut in the wider area.
“We have a fantastic community in and around Stevenage, so we hope to delight our valued guests here by giving them the best possible experience at our new look Hut.”
