Pizza Hut Just Abruptly Closed Multiple Locations

After a major chain's unexpected shutdown this month, New Yorkers in numerous counties have one fewer pizza option.

Local media claims that Pizza Hut has closed at least seven shops in Herkimer, Fulton, and Montgomery counties in the past two weeks.

The corporation stated that it was closing the restaurants but did not explain why.

"While we can confirm these particular locations have closed, the Pizza Hut brand is experiencing growth, including in New York,

and remains committed to providing outstanding service and products to our valued customers across the country," the statement stated.

Cobleskill: 109 Barnerville Road Johnstown Mall, Route 30A Herkimer: 306 W Albany Monticello: 352 E Broadway Amsterdam: 4822 Route 30 Gloversville: 195 2nd Ave. Ballston Spa: 2103 Doubleday Avenue

Pizza Hut does not mention these locations. Google searches revealed that Amsterdam, Cobleskill, Ballston Spa,

and Monticello are "permanently closed." The Amsterdam Pizza Hut's door had a "Closed 4 Good" sign, The Daily Gazette reported.
