What was the first pizza chain in the United States?

Answer:

Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut is older than Domino’s by two years – and was officially the first chain pizza restaurant in America. Pizza Hut was founded in 1958 by Dan and Frank Carney. The two brothers borrowed $600 from their mom to open a pizza place in Wichita, Kansas. They named it Pizza Hut, because their sign only had room for eight letters. On opening night, they gave away pizza to encourage community interest in the new concept. Six months later they opened a second outlet and within a year they had six Pizza Hut restaurants. There are now more than 16,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries.
