Yum brands on verge of ditching Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut signage fast food

Yum Brands is looking to sell the underperforming restaurant chain Pizza Hut.

The food giant is in exclusive talks with Endless LLP, a UK-based turnaround investor, after the other two bidders, Risk Capital Partners and Rutland Partners, withdrew. 

Revenues at Pizza Hut grew by 3% in the last six months of 2011 after revamping its menu and decor.

However, the venerable pizza chain, which was founded in 1958 by Dan and Frank Carney, has made a loss over the past four years.

Endless owns Bathstore, discount book chain The Works school uniform maker Trutex.

The deal apparently hinges on whether they can reach an agreement on royalty payments.
