Northwest Indiana Pizza Hut’s shutter abruptly

More than one dozen Pizza Hut’s have gone away in Northwest Indiana. As of Friday night, Pizza Hut’s website showed the following 15 locations as “closed:” Portage, Chesterton, Valparaiso, Hobart, Winfield, Crown Point, Schererville, Griffith, Hammond, Merrillville, LaPorte, Michigan City, Lowell, Cedar Lake and Munster.

A Pizza Hut spokesperson provided the following statement to NBC Chicago Friday afternoon:

“While some local franchisee-operated restaurants have temporarily closed, Pizza Hut remains committed to providing outstanding service and products to our valued customers. The company is working to transition these locations and expects many of them will reopen soon. To find a Pizza Hut location nearest you, please visit¬†”

We would like to humbly pour one out for all of the Pizza Hut’s that we lost over the weekend.
