If Pizza Hut follows through, they stand to make history as the first pizza chain to ever implement a drive-through into their business model (via Restaurant Business). This game-changing upgrade lets them potentially collect more profits and puts them in a better standing when competing against fast food giants like Wendy’s or McDonald’s that rely on drive-through orders to bolster business. Pizza Hut, which currently maintains 6,500 locations, may expand this feature to more of their businesses if the initial rollout proves successful.
Only time can tell if this new ordering model helps Americans get some extra Pizza Hut in their life. For now, we have to cross our fingers and hope a few locations in our area get the “Hut Lane” to better serve our pizza needs and help efficiently get us through the pick-up process quicker. With some luck, this upgrade could revolutionize the entire business model and forever change the way we approach getting pizza.
