Restaurants are typically closed Thursday for the holiday, but this year Pizza Hut opened their doors at 5 o'clock in the afternoon. Recently a manager of one of the stores in Indiana was fired for refusing to open on Thanksgiving. According to CNN, they announced that they're offering him his job back.
5 News talked to people in our community today to see what they thought about Pizza Hut being open and we got some mixed reactions.
"At my house we're going to eat turkey at five or after so Pizza Hut wouldn't interest me, but to those who maybe already eating turkey and maybe want to watch the ball game tonight, maybe they'll want something from Pizza Hut," said Tony Veltri, Taylor County Resident.
"Employees should be home with their families first of all and I guess I don't really think of pizza as being a main staple of Thanksgiving day," said Mary Cautz, Holiday Traveler.
"Some people want to work on Thanksgiving because they don't have any place to go themselves, maybe they get extra pay for that. Of course, there are a lot of people who don't have family to go to so they want to go out and get things. Or they might be out traveling, so they might be at a motel. It could be all kinds of issues," said Valrie Cowan, Holiday Traveler.
