Pizza Hut Eyes Soviet Market

Associated Press

PepsiCo Inc., which introduced mass market soft drinks to the Soviet Union 13 years ago, said today it is negotiating with Soviet officials to open as many as 100 Pizza Hut restaurants there.

The proposal would make Pizza Hut the first foreign restaurant company to operate in that country, the company said. The Soviets already have some pizza parlors of their own, it said.
