Pizza Hut expands into Cambodia with Phnom Penh store
Deal with United Food Group will bring up to 30 new restaurant locations in Cambodia
Pizza Hut has arrived in Cambodia in the city of Phnom Penh near the Russian market. The debut of the brand in a restaurant located in the popular business hub for expats will be followed by two more stores in the next few months. The Pizza Hut opening in Phnom Penh was made possible through a franchise agreement with local food company United Food Group.
“Pizza Hut International is proud to partner with United Food Group to open the market’s first Pizza Hut in Cambodia,” said Unnat Varma, Pizza Hut managing director of Asia Pacific. “We are excited to enter Cambodia, a land of rich culture and heritage. The new Pizza Hut will feature the most modern and delicious pizza experience across all channels including dine-in, delivery, take-out and even digital, to give aspiring Cambodians the easiest way to experience the best tasting pizza in the world.”
The Pizza Hut International deal with United Food Group will bring as many as 30 new stores to Cambodia over the next two to three years.
Heng Sengly, group CEO of United Food Group suggested Pizza Hut offered a significant value proposition. He added, “The number of Cambodians with disposable income is increasing rapidly and they’re looking for brands & products to enhance their modern lifestyle.”
Sengly further commented, “It is a new trend that many Cambodians lead busier work lives and have more money to spend on leisure and high-class food. This means that eating at home and cooking their own meals has become less commonplace.”
