If you’re hankering for Pizza Hut in Tuscaloosa, you’ve got four fewer spots to pick from.

Nationwide, Pizza’ Hut’s largest franchisee announced the closure of nearly a quarter of its stores. Since the start of 2020, NPC International has already closed 500 stores, and the franchise filed for bankruptcy in July.

Tuscaloosa County was home to five Pizza Huts: three in Tuscaloosa, one in Cottondale and one in Northport. The only one remaining open is the location on Oscar Baxter Drive, by Lowes.

NPC International is changing their focus toward delivery and carry-out over the dine-in experience Pizza Hut was originally known for.
