If you've experienced bad luck today, don't worry. During Pizza Hut's opening night back in 1958, the oven caught fire and damaged the restaurant! πŸ”₯πŸ•πŸ˜±

But if the Carney brothers could bounce back from that to run one of the most successful pizza restaurants in the world, you can definitely get through today!πŸ€žπŸ€

Wichita State University associate professor Lisa Mullikin Parcell and her family traveled to Iceland for vacation, where they found a taste of home. The Pizzahut.is locations have almost everything the American locations do with a few twists, including pizzas that are unique to the region. For example, the Romana Ostaveisla is topped with blue cheese, pepper cheese, parmesan and oregano with an option to add raspberry jam. Many restaurants also serve dinner by candlelight.
