PIZZA Hut is set to close its Wrexham branch this week after being given less than two-weeks notice, with the rumoured potential buyer being McDonald's.

The UK-based chain Pizza Hut, located in Wrexham's Central Retail Park, will sadly be closing its doors on Saturday September, 30. 

It rumoured that the fast-food chain McDonald's has bought the site and will hopefully be offering current staff new positions once it has re-opened.

McDonald's is yet to confirm if this is the case, but a spokesperson said: "We are currently exploring a number of opportunities in the wider area with discussions at a very early stage.”

A Pizza Hut UK & Europe spokesperson said: “We can confirm that our Wrexham Hut, located in Wrexham Central Retail Park, will permanently close on Saturday 30th September. Responding to an ever-shifting consumer landscape, our business and operating models are evolving.

"We are confident in the ongoing success of one of Britain’s favourite businesses, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

The Pizza Hut Wrexham manager, said: "Pizza Hut Wrexham will be closing the doors for the last time on Saturday 30th September. 

"We believe McDonald's to have taken over the lease but whether that will be a drive through we don't know.

"Pizza Hut has been part of Wrexham for over 17years and it's a shock to us as it is to all our guests.

"This is sensitive time for everyone at Pizza Hut with only having two weeks notice."


Pizza Hut announced that it was set to close a large number of its venues across the UK back in December, 2020, despite no North Wales sites being on the original list. 

Like many other businesses, it is understood that the restaurant has suffered from the ongoing cost-of-living crisis and wage inflation in recent months.

The news has come as a shock to the staff and residents of Wrexham who will be sad to see the venue go. Pizza Hut also has a seperate delivery service site in the city.
