ST. CLOUD - A new Pizza Hut-Wingstreet on 5th Avenue in St. Cloud is having its grand opening on Monday.

The Pizza Hut is at 305 5th Avenue South, the building previously held a campus bookstore. The restaurant will feature a full bar and "sports bar atmosphere" with several large TV's.

Doug Prickett is the director of operations with Pizza Hut and says they hope to attract many students being close to the campus of St. Cloud State University.

"Being this close to campus, it will hopefully be a students number one choice of a place to come and eat and come in for some drinks."

Prickett says the beverages and sports bar feel should match well with their pizza and menu.

"It's not just a bar-it's a great food establishment that has the accompanying bar to go with it. We think being on the walkway to downtown that we'll be a definite destination for the students as well as the community."

The restaurant will be open from 11:00 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and will be open until 1:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Prickett says they may adjust their hours to stay open later when school gets back in session.
