Frank and Dan Carney had the idea to ope n a pizza parlor. They borrowed $600 from their mother, and ope ned the very first Pizza Hut. In 1959, the first franchise unit opened in Topeka, Kansas. Almost a decade later, Pizza Hut would be serving one million customers a week in their 310 locations. In 1970, Pizza Hut was put on the New York Stock Excha nge un der the ticker symbol PIZ. In 1986, Pizza Hut in troduced delivery service, someth ing no other restaura nt was doing. By the 1990s Pizza Hut sales had reached $4 billion worldwide. In 1998, Pizza Hut celebrated their 40th anni versary, and laun ched their famous campaig n "The Best Pizzas Un der One Roof." In 1996, Pizza Hut sales in the United States were over $5 million.
