Must be a franchisee. I'm pretty sure Pizza Hut, corporate is based in SNA, flying C750's.

Who owns the Challenger based in SDF with the pizza hut logo on the tail? It's hangared with the Challenger with Colonel Sanders on the tail.

This ad's for a franchisee up in FWA. Pepsico owns Pizza Hut, Taco Bell (I believe), and KFC... So they are probably theirs...

Do they own the Astra with the big Doritos Logo plastered all over the tail as well?

I saw it all the time when we made runs into Scottsdale.

Here's a little ...

Here's what I know, having flown a C-310 in the past for a Pizza Hut franchisee. The FWA job is certainly for a franchisee, of which there are many, and many have their own airplanes ... the guy I worked for flew a 310, I know another one with a 421, so there's quite a few.

Here's how the ownership chain works ... Pizza Hut, KFC, and Taco Bell are all owned by an entity called Tricon Global Restaurants. Tricon is headquartered in Louisville ... you can see their building if you drive the I-264 (Watterson Expwy.) going out toward SDF. So, I would assume that the airplanes at SDF are Tricon's.

Now, Tricon is itself a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pepsico. Pepsi has their own airplanes (in New York, I think). However, I know that each of the restaurants also maintains their own HQ (PH is in Dallas, on the Tollway in Addison; KFC is in Louisville I think; TB I believe is in CA somewhere.). I know for certain that Pizza Hut corporate in Dallas has their own flight department, flying a Challenger (maybe more, but I've seen the Challenger) based out of ADS in Dallas. Pizza Hut's HQ is near Addison ... you can see it driving the North Dallas Tollway from ADS down toward the Galleria (or look left on final to 33 at ADS). Now, TB and KFC may also have their own airplanes, to say nothing of the various franchisees.

In short, everyone's probably totally confused, but that is what I know. Pepsi owns Tricon owns the three chains whose locations are franchised.

Tailwinds, y'all ...

Doritos is part of Frito Lay which also has a Chester Cheetah on the front of another of their aircraft. Those planes are constantly at BFL due to a large Frito Lay factory a few miles from the airport.
There's no *CRUNCH* to their landings though. . .

I live in BFL at the airport like any good CFI, and I've never seen the "Fritos" airplane. What are you smokin' anyway?

BFL

Howdy!

The "cheetah" is nose art and a different aircraft than the Doritos tail one. No, I am not going to drag up fuel receipts or even do a landings.com search and verify the aircraft types and ownership. (Uhhh, mostly white bizjet :cool: )

Keep an eye on the ramp during the upcoming BFL Business Seminar and you might see one of Frito Lay's aircraft.

If you can spare the time, head on over to tonight's WINGS Seminar at the Sheriff's building. You might find a technique to make your IFR flying easier.

Fly SAFE!
