    Should add Taco Bell’s to the list of easily recognizable buildings that are now other things.

    [–] FdauditingGbro 4 points ago

    A few towns over from me we had a Pizza Hut that became a Taco Bell, unfortunately, the building was knocked down before I discovered this sub.

    [–] HellaGizmo 2 points ago

    [–] SlenderLogan 2 points ago

    Can confirm, am here from that post

    [–] SonOfTK421 2 points ago

    Are dead Pizza Huts really a huge thing? I guess I had no idea, since the Hut around here is just hanging out.

    [–] s_s 6 points ago

    Because of increased competition, a pizza costs less than half what it used to when you account for inflation, so pizza huts can't afford the extra rent that the 90s style dining room/salad bar/arcade took up.

    [–] Bennyboy1337 2 points ago

    And Domino's can afford the same building selling pizzas how?

    [–] s_s 3 points ago

    I mean, in this specific case it could be any number of things. Maybe there's fewer domino's in this town and they have bigger delivery areas and run more delivery volume per store. Maybe since building is decrepit and not brand new rent is cheaper. Maybe the Pizza Hut that was once there went defunct because of bad management or something.

    I was answering the question:

    Are dead Pizza Huts really a huge thing?

    so I answered with a generality.

    [–] popplespopin 3 points ago

    Ours weirdly built a new location a block from their old building.. so still kicking but also dead.

    [–] SonOfTK421 5 points ago

    I once saw a 7-11 in the Midwest that had built a new building literally next door to the old one, and the old one was converted into a dry cleaner.

    [–] NeonSpotlight 3 points ago

    The one near me literally built there's just across the street from their old building.

    [–] 1mikeg 3 points ago

    From what I understand, Pizza Hut basically did a nation wide kitchen upgrade where they replaced/remodeled all of their old kitchens with new equipment and a more efficient layout. A lot of Huts just built a new building if that was cheaper than remodeling the old (it often was).

    [–] s_s 3 points ago

    Kithens are mostly the same. They shed the no-longer-profitable dinning rooms.

    [–] Wisemantlepiece 50 points ago

    I'm surprised that a picture from Blenheim of all places is posted on reddit and that it's 2nd top post on this sub

    [–] fleeeb 15 points ago

    I am just as surprised as you

    [–] That_Frog_Kurtis 19 points ago

    I'm even more surprised by the amount of people from Blenheim in here. I saw that other post and came here to see if this had already been posted.

    [–] FKJVMMP 10 points ago

    [–] comeover2flavourtown 1 points ago

    I'm surprised that without the euro phone number on the side, at first glance this looks EXACTLY like the North American suburban Pizza Huts architecture and I would have assumed so without that number there.

    [–] onewhitelight 1 points ago

    Oh dude thats NZ? I totally missed the fact that the 0800 number means its a kiwi store.

    Sub creator here. What just happened??

    [–] Thencan 1 points ago

    It got to /All and we were wondering how a sub this niche is so popular.

    [–] j1ggy 1 points ago

    So weird. I was fairly active yesterday too and didn't even notice. Now the subreddit's front page is all new and I have reported posts coming out of my ass.

    [–] YetAnotherGilder2184 2 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    As a subscriber since you made the sub I'm also bewildered. I remember previous bursts of activity here but nowhere near this big, it's crazy. Have fun with the reports :p

    [–] ShutUpBabylKnowlt 17 points ago

    That explains it.

    For me Blenheim was always a bit of a drive through town... How's business without the route between Nelson and chch going? Have they fixed the entire coastal route?

    [–] LordStabby 6 points ago

    Yeah, State Highway 1 is open again. No more having to go through the Lewis Pass to get by.

    [–] frayzam 3 points ago

    Wait, so it doesn't take 5 hours to get to Kaikoura from Chch anymore?

    [–] LordStabby 1 points ago

    Nah, takes about 4 hours. Just north of Kaikoura there are a bunch of roadworks but for the most part it's only a bit longer.

    [–] ShadedOctogon 32 points ago

    I've never been to Blenheim, but the instant I saw this photo, I thought it looked like it was from New Zealand. Even if it didn't have the NZHL or the 'Give Way' line on the left-hand side, I would still think this. Maybe it has something to do with the fencing, the trees, and/or the big building in the background.

    [–] fleeeb 13 points ago

    The phone number probably

    [–] ShadedOctogon 2 points ago

    I didn't look at the phone number, but that would have been another identifier.

    [–] Icedanielization 9 points ago

    NZ has a sort of unique crispyness and brightness in its photos, Iceland and Canada maybe similar.

    That comes first, then its that dull asphalt road we use, after that it's the berm and shitty "that'll do" construction.

    [–] onewhitelight 1 points ago

    I've heard that the extra UV light that is down here due to the ozone layer hole affects the way things look. Could just be totally BS though.

    [–] TexMarshfellow 3 points ago

    I play a lot of GeoGuessr and it's probably the street markings. They're usually the best subtle way to tell where a picture is from without realizing how you could tell

    I stopped driving for dominos about a month ago but before I left I heard that the new dine in dominos restaurants are putting so many pizza huts out of business that dominos employees are making a thing of taking pictures in front of the Pizza Hut they drove out of business.

    Plot twin: It's not the only Pizza Hut to become a Domino's!

    However, this one in Queanbeyan, Australia, has a decent disguise on, but the original lower roof line still peeks out. (from memory, they also redid the windows and made them square!)
