Pizza Hut tests beer and wine delivery

Pizza Hut tests beer and wine delivery

You will be exhausted from a long day at work and starving, but unwilling to put too much thought into your dinner. Many Pizza Hut locations are already licensed to serve and distribute beer and wine, which allows Pizza Hut to eliminate any third-party vendor to provide a smoother, faster delivery experience.

The beer selection will be a six-pack of Budweiser, Bud Light, Shock Top and Kilt Lifter. A spokesman said it would consider testing beer delivery in the future.

Pizza Hut is thinking outside the pizza box. Only beer is available now, for $10.99 a six pack. In January, the company plans to add wine to its offerings and expand beyond its test market. The company still hasn't decided which wines to deliver, or whether it should offer full bottles or single servings.

Parkopedia allows drivers to find, reserve and pay for parking, all at the click of a button. The system utilizes IBM Watson's machine learning features along with user data.

Delivery drivers will also need to be 21 or older, which may give an edge to older job applicants if this plan evolves to other cities or even becomes standard practice at Pizza Hut.

Pizza Hut parent Yum Brands Inc has been working to turn around sales at the chain.

Customers will be required to show their IDs at the door.
