Pizza Hut To Hire ~14k New Drivers, Debuts New Delivery Tech

The on-demand concept has effectively revolutionized the way retailers interact with consumers.

With basically anything at the tip of their fingers, consumers have the ability to order what they want, how they want it. Consumers also are gaining more control over how quickly their service or product comes to their front door.

To help move the ball on this front, Pizza Hut announced news of its plans to not only hire 3,000 pizza delivery drivers a month for every month remaining in 2017, but it is also integrating a new delivery network algorithm to expedite its QSR services.

Pizza Hut’s U.S. President, Arthur Starrs, commented on the company’s new pizza delivery hires and restaurant technology describing how it will enhance the company’s QSR offerings: “We have a belief that ‘No One Out Pizzas the Hut,’ and for us that’s so much more than a tagline. It’s a promise that we are making to our customers. We have been in the service business for almost 60 years, and our commitment to providing the best, most reliable delivery service and overall experience is as strong now as it has been. It has to be, because the customer expects that from us.”

Given the nature of consumer expectations in today’s fast-moving society, a move like this will likely help edge the restaurant over its pizza-making competitors.
