, the screaming is over. The duo had been feuding over

licenses, with The Pizza suing Tricon for $180 million. Tricon responded with a countersuit. At question is who has the right to call its restaurants "Pizza Hut."

The Pizza Company

. Then those Pizza Hut restaurants will become a different brand. Meanwhile, Tricon's company-owned stores will stay Pizza Hut.
