Pizza Hut shuts down the ovens

The La Grande Pizza Hut, 2602 Island Ave., sits dark the morning of Friday, Sept. 11. A notice on the front doors states, “We’re sorry! This restaurant has closed.” NPC International, which operates Pizza Hut and Wendy’s restaurants in the United States, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July, according to court records. NPC International in August announced it reached a deal with Pizza Hut owner Yum! Brands Inc. to close up to 300 of the establishments.
