A few short weeks ago, inquiries to NPC International Inc. told us no determinations were made as to which Pizza Huts would ultimately be closed. Last week the decision was finalized.
The Buffalo Pizza Hut was shut down permanently. The closest Pizza Hut to Buffalo is in Bolivar.
A spokesperson for NPC International wrote, “As part of our restructuring process, we made the very difficult decision to close the Buffalo, MO Pizza Hut restaurant. We did not take this decision lightly, and we are committed to providing support to impacted employees. Ultimately, these actions will best position our remaining restaurant business for success. NPC continues to operate many other Pizza Hut restaurants across the country, which remain open for business, supported by our 23,000 dedicated employees who are ready to serve our customers.”
