Pizza Hut Restaurants has unveiled a £346,960 restaurant makeover at its Milton Keynes Hut, creating two new jobs for the area.
The Midsummer Arcade re-opening is part of a multi-million pound nationwide redesign programme by the casual dining company.
All of Pizza Hut Restaurants’ famous icons – including the Ice Cream Factory, Salad Station and Buffet – still take centre stage, but form part of the new, interactive design that includes a central preparation station offering a range of desserts including warm cookie dough, and a self-service soft drinks hub allowing guests to refill drinks at their leisure.
A contemporary new cocktail bar has been introduced offering guests a unique Hut experience. This great addition will transform the restaurant into a fun evening destination appealing to a wider customer base across Milton Keynes.
Restaurant Manager Carl Payne said: “We are really excited to show off our new makeover. Visually it’s unreal – the restaurant looks really modern and cool with new wall art and quirky seating booths. The bar is the best feature though it’s really prominent and the bright lights give it the wow factor.
Polly Bartlett, the Hut’s newest member of staff, added: “We love the new design and menu. Guests will notice a difference as soon as they walk through the door particularly in the evening when the new lighting scheme really comes to life.”
The investment in Milton Keynes is part of a broader £60 million refurbishment and restructuring programme for the business, secured through private equity investment from Rutland Partners in late 2012.
