Pizza Hut Beer Delivery Expands to 300 Locations
Pizza Hut is adding more restaurants to its beer delivery program. By mid-January the Plano, Texas-based company will expand the program to nearly 300 restaurants across Florida, Iowa, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio and additional locations across California and Arizona. The rollout is a brand priority, with Pizza Hut aiming to add beer delivery capabilities to 1,000 restaurants by summer.
The announcement is aptly timed ahead of Super Bowl LIII, one of the busiest days of the year for Pizza Hut. 86% of Americans plan to serve both pizza and beer at their upcoming Super Bowl party this year, according to a December Survey Monkey poll.
“As the official Pizza Sponsor of the NFL, we’ve been celebrating football fans all season long, so it only makes sense for us to bring more customers the beloved combo of pizza and beer ahead of the Super Bowl,” said Marianne Radley, Chief Brand Officer. “We are proud to be pioneers of beer delivery and are well-poised to take on more markets in the coming year.”
In December 2017, Pizza Hut launched its beer delivery pilot program in Arizona. Now, in 2019, with strong franchise partner participation, the company is in seven different states with additional markets forthcoming.
“Our expanded beer delivery program and Super Bowl weekend creates a great level of excitement across our participating franchise partners and team members,” said Nicolas Burquier, Chief Customer and Operations Officer, Pizza Hut. “Beer delivery is a game-changing lever that we’ll continue to pull in order to deliver oven-hot pizzas with ice-cold beer to customers watching and celebrating their favorite teams.”
Qualifying orders must meet delivery minimum requirements and be placed through PizzaHut.com, the Pizza Hut Mobile App for iPhone and Android or via phone.
