Fifty-seven years ago, two Wichita brothers launched the very first Pizza Hut.

The business has grown into the world's largest pizza chain, with nearly 15,000 stores worldwide making about $13 billion in annual sales.

KMUW's Carla Eckels recently spoke with Pizza Hut co-founder Dan Carney about his early life in the pizza business. This piece is part of KMUW's ongoing series, "Wichita Entrepreneurs." More on Carney and Pizza Hut can be found here.
