Pizza Hut testing beer, wine delivery with your pie

Pizza Hut testing beer, wine delivery with your pie

It plans to add wine deliveries in January and to expand its beer and wine delivery test to other markets in 2018, one of several steps aimed at reviving lackluster sales. So, to make things easy for us all, they're going to start toying around with the idea of delivering pizzas with a side of booze, and that pilot program process starts today.

Pizza Hut is focused on improving the pizza experience overall - from introducing its oven-HOT delivery system last month to being the first in the pizza industry to introduce beer and wine delivery.

Smith-Schuster, Iloka suspended one game each
As he did so, Pro Bowl Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown yelled the word "Karma" over and over in the background. Seeing an opportunity to take a free shot at Burfict, Smith-Schuster stuck his helmet into Burfict's jaw on a block.

Beginning with the very lucky Phoenix, Arizona, six-packs of Anheuser-Busch brands - including Budweiser, Bud Light and Shock Top and Kilt Lifter, which is made by Arizona-based craft brewer Four Peaks - will slowly start to be tested out in delivery for a flat fee of $10.99. The beer and wine will be delivered in a custom cooler to ensure those six packs are ready to drink. By the end of the year, the company expects to hire 14,000 new drivers.

A spokeswoman told Fortune that 1,700 out of Pizza Hut's 6,300 USA locations already have liquor licenses.

While booming passenger traffic will spur fares, airlines will be challenged by rising costs for fuel and labor. Interestingly, the IATA data hinted at a slowdown from the 9.2 percent annual growth recorded in September 2017.

This beer delivery move comes after Yum poured $130 million into Pizza Hut in April in order to better compete with rivals Domino's and Papa Johns.

Nevertheless, the move by Pizza Hut to offer delivery of beer and wine will take a bit of logistical coordination. Customers will also be required to show proof age when the delivery arrives.
