LAKEWOOD – The Jamestown area Pizza Hut that closed earlier this year due to the COVID-19 shutdown will not reopen.
A Pizza Hut spokesperson announced Wednesday that the local franchisee decided to permanently close all 17 dine-in restaurants in Western New York, including the Dunkirk location.
Officials say this is the result of the initial temporary closing of Pizza Huts because of COVID-19 restrictions.
“Pizza Hut has new franchisees coming into the New York region, and we are hopeful we will be able to serve our customers in this area again in the future,” the spokesperson told WIVB News 4.
Here is a list of the stores that have closed:
Several Pizza Hut restaurants temporally closed in April after reporting slow business because of a state mandate that shuttered indoor seating.
