In an effort to remain afloat in this ailing economy, Pizza Hut has decided to re-brand some of their stores as “The Hut”.

IDSGN reports that Pizza Hut spokesman Chris Fuller has confirmed that the name change is only a marketing effort and not a permanent change for all stores.

I like their new all-red pizza boxes, but not so much their new (or old) logo. Doesn’t the name remind you of Jabba The Hut?
