An interdisciplinary team at Wichita State University with individuals from the departments of Business, Communication, History, and Museum Studies worked with a design firm to rehabilitate the first Pizza Hut into a museum, an endeavor that crossed the boundaries of academic, institutional, and corporate voices. Following the university’s commitment to accessibility, shared authority became an asset in showing how the latest technology was not always the solution, as well as how universal design helped reach a broad range of audiences. The result has been a facility that is a unique intersection of brand history, the study of entrepreneurship, and accessibility.
