§ 5.321. Service in establishments primarily serving food.

 (a)  Section 493(14) of the Liquor Code (47 P. S. §  4-493(14)) creates several exceptions to the general prohibition of minors being present in licensed premises. One of these exceptions, known as the ‘‘Pizza Hut’’ exception, permits a minor to be present in a restaurant, hotel or retail dispenser (but not a club) licensed premises that has gross sales of food and nonalcoholic beverages equal to at least 50% of its combined gross sales of both food and alcoholic beverages.

 (b)  Licensees qualifying for this exception will not be cited for unlawfully allowing minors to frequent the licensed premises.

 (c)  To qualify for this exception, a licensee will assure that:

   (1)  Minors are not permitted to sit at the bar counter of the premises.

   (2)  Alcoholic beverages are not served to any adult at the table or booth where the minor is seated, unless the minor is also there with a parent, legal guardian or proper supervisor.

   (3)  Sales of food and nonalcoholic beverages at the licensed premises during the preceding 12-month licensing year are at least 50% of the combined gross sales of both food and alcoholic beverages.
