The pilot program started in December when Pizza Hut announced plans to deliver beer from one restaurant in Phoenix. Now, the company is expanding across the state into Tucson and Glendale, Arizona. Markets in California include Los Angeles, Bakersfield, Riverside, Sacramento, Santa Barbara, and Santa Clara, with Anaheim, Huntington Beach, and Redding to come later this month.
Zipporah Allen, Pizza Hut's chief marketing officer, played the roll of your everyday, laid back corporate executive in a statement, saying: "Nothing complements an oven-hot pizza like an ice-cold beer."
"In addition to our extensive delivery network, many Pizza Hut restaurants are already licensed to serve and distribute beer, without third party services, additional fees, or extended wait times," she said. "Expanding the pilot program is a natural way for Pizza Hut to get our customers the perfect pizza and beer combo they're craving, delivered right to their doors."
