Beer delivery will be up and running in nearly 300 locations in Florida, Iowa, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, California and Arizona by mid-January. Pizza Hut is the only national pizza chain that delivers beer.
Delivery has become increasingly important for restaurants trying to reach their customers outside of the store and learn more about their preferences. For pizza chains, the stakes are higher. Unlike other fast food companies, pizza restaurants have been successfully offering delivery for years. To stay competitive, they have to up their game.
GAME CHANGER! This is going to be the difference between me ordering Jets, Dominos or whatever other pizza chain that hasn't stepped their game up in the alcohol department. How many times do you order food and you think "damn, this would be perfect if I had a cold one to go along with it"? For me that is ALL THE TIME. I'm not quite sure when they would start delivering in the state of Michigan but the fact that they are already pushing this to so many different locations throughout the country gives me a feeling it will be here before you know it.
Back in my days at UT, I would primarily get Dominos or another food service that was quick just so I wouldn't have to wait to get my food. Not to mention I was a broke-ass college student who loved the two medium two topping deal for 15 bucks. But now I have no issues with waiting the extra 30 minutes if it means I can crack a few cold ones open with the friends. Pizza Hut you are my new favorite person.
