Convenience chain Greens Retail becomes Pizza Hut franchisee

The firm is one of the first convenience chains to operate a franchise under the global brand

Multi-site operator Harris Aslam has become one of the first independent retailers to operate a Pizza Hut franchise alongside a convenience store, with more sites to come.

The Nisa retailer and managing director of Greens Retail parent company Glenshire Group revealed the news in September, with the first site under the global pizza brand based next to his convenience store in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

Aslam told Better Retailing conversations with Pizza Hut began a couple of years ago, with further sites to potentially open either inside or next to his other stores.

He added: “It’s a totally separate business and orders for customers take 12-15 minutes. It adds value to our existing convenience business and we’re also looking at home delivery.”

A post by Glenshire Group on social media said: “We are proud to announce that we are Pizza Hut UK & Europe’s newest franchisee.

“Today marks the launch of a modern & and fresh site location in Kirkcaldy. It has been just over a decade since Pizza Hut left Kirkcaldy, but we’re bringing it back with a bang.

“We’re excited to be working with Pizza Hut on what we hope is the start of a strong and prosperous relationship with more locations opening in the future.”

Aslam already operates a Subway franchise from some of his existing branches.
