Pizza Hut opens first all-women operated store in India

Pizza chain Pizza Hut has opened its first all-women operated outlet in India.

The store is located at Gangtok empowering more women in the workforce and ensuring an ‘Equal Slice for Everyone’.

From store function, food preparation and customer service to day-to-day management, everything will be managed by the all-women team.

“2021 has been a marquee year with many firsts for Pizza Hut. Earlier this year we had unveiled our bold new brand platform called ‘Dil Khol Ke Delivering’ to let everyone know that Pizza Hut delivers the best taste and value, easiest access along with our signature warm service across every channel – Dine-in, Takeaway or Delivery. To bring our ‘Dil Khol Ke Delivering’ message alive in a unique way, we have also roped in popular actor and comedian Anuradha Menon as our magnetic ambassador, making Pizza Hut one of the first few QSR chains in India to use a female ambassador as the face of the brand,” shared Chitra D Ram, Director – Capability & Culture, Pizza Hut at Yum! Restaurants International by adding that they are proud to begin a new chapter by opening the first all-women store in India that puts women at the front and centre of action.

The store will have a staff of over 10 women employees to start with, including store managers. A majority of these women employees are freshers, making this an excellent stepping-stone for them to start their professional career with a highly respected brand like Pizza Hut.

“It is an honour to be associated with a brand that not only advocates gender equality and inclusion but also demonstrates it in an equally strong manner. Dil Khol Ke salute to this all-women power team of the Gangtok store as they set foot on this bold and adventurous journey,” added Menon.

Pizza Hut’s parent company Yum! Brands has also been setting diversity and inclusion benchmarks consistently.
