Nine Pizza Hut locations have been closed in the city of Milwaukee due to the lack of a valid food dealer license.

A spokesperson with Milwaukee’s Health Department explained this is not a sanitation issue. Instead, the locations were bought out by a new operator and the licensing wasn’t sorted out.

For the Pizza Huts to reopen, the license needs to be approved by the Milwaukee Police Department, city leaders, Department of Neighborhood Services and the city’s health department. TODAY’S TMJ4 was told that could take anywhere from two days to an undetermined amount of time.

Below are the nine Pizza Hut locations that have been closed:
5704 W Capitol Dr
2340 N Farwell Ave
10400 W Silver Spring Dr.
7604 W Burleigh St
6807 W Brown Deer Rd
3932 S 76th St
1840 S 15th St
3555 S 27th St
3131 S Kinnickinnic Ave

The health department sent us the following statement about the issue:

“The City if Milwaukee Health Department identified several Pizza Hut locations that were operating without a valid food dealer license. These locations were issued orders to close until they obtain a valid license. The applicant is working with the different City departments to complete the necessary paperwork, once done the pre-licensing inspections can begin.”
