“Frank and Dan Car­ney were help­ing out one day in their dad’s gro­cery store in Wi­chita, Kan. when the land­lady dropped by com­plain­ing about her other ten­ant, a seedy tav­ern next door. She’d just read in the Satur­day Evening Post about a pizza par­lor in New York City. ‘Now, you two boys,’ she sug­gested to the col­lege stu­dents, ‘could open up a nice re­spectable pizza place right here next to your dad’s gro­cery.’ ” And so, the $167 mil­lion (sales) Pizza Hut chain was born.” —“A Pizza a Day” (May 15, 1975)
