Pizza Hut closes

The Pizza Hut in Jackson has served its last pies.

The doors are locked, with a sign saying the final day was Jan. 15.

"Thank you Jackson for 35 years," it said.

According to newspaper archives, the Pizza Hut opened at 180 Powderhorn Lane in June 1983. But plans to open one in Jackson go back to the late 1970s. Originally it was going to be near the Virginian.

The owner of the Powderhorn Lane property, according to Teton County property records, is Pizza Hut of Jackson Hole Inc. c/o High Plains Pizza, of Liberal, Kansas.

Last year, High Plains Pizza sold 82 Pizza huts in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and Montana to Grand Mere Restaurant Group, a private equity firm in New York.
