    i thought it was a joke when i first heard that lol

    Published Date: 06 October 2008
    PIZZA HUT has announced it is to rename 30 of its branches Pasta Hut as part of an £18 million revamp package designed to attract new customers.

    The new name will reflect an updated pasta menu, bringing the likes of crayfish arrabiata and mozzarella mezzaluna to high streets across the country.

    Chief executive Alasdair Murdoch said: "We're trying to say to people, 'Yes, we're great at pizzas, but we're also great at salads and pasta'."

    He hopes to boost pasta sales by seven per cent over the next fortnight by adding pasta dishes to Pizza Hut's takeaway menu.

    Just heard that on the radio! And apparently they're only doing 30 of them first and then might change it back. So much money when they're not really putting much effort into rebranding...

    Good publicity though I guess - I'd do almost anything for a pizza now :rofl: x
