Peppes Pizza was the first restaurant that brought pizza to Norway.
Peppes Pizza is currently[when?] present in more than 76 locations all over Norway, and more than 9 million pizzas are served by Peppes Pizza each year. Peppes Pizza also deliveries pizza in over 11 cities in Norway. Their menu was first put online in March 1995. The servings have been described as enough for two people and that the pizza chain is "a cut above the rest".
The bestselling fiction book The Seducer by Norwegian author Jan Kjærstad documents an actual history of the pizza chain.
The Chinese restaurants had some different items on the menu that Chinese people are more used to, such as soups and pastas. The first restaurant opened in Beijing, China because of Pizza Hut's success in the country. The restaurant ran a "Pizza & Film" promotion which included a large pizza, a large cola, and an animation DVD.
A restaurant in Sanlitun located in Bejiing had a children's play area. Despite being known in Norway as having good food, eChinacities said "Although not renowned for its excellent food Peppes is fairly reasonably priced". National Arabic Company operated six locations in Kuwait.
There was also a restaurant in Leytonstone High Street during the 1990s owned and run by a brother and sister.
