If your biggest fear in life is receiving a warm or room temperature pizza, then a) woah, you need to find a hobby and b) you may want to start ordering exclusively from Pizza Hut. In preparation for winter, the pizza giant has debuted a fancy schmancy new pizza pouch that keeps pies 15 degrees hotter than its predecessor.
Made from the same materials as space blankets, winter jackets, and home insulation, the 3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation thermal technology will guarantee that your order is piping hot, no matter the delivery circumstances.
“What consumers want more than anything else is a hot pizza, which is why we couldn’t be more excited about the system we have developed to make sure we serve a hot, crispy and craveable Pizza Hut pizza every time,” said Zipporah Allen, Vice President of Marketing in a statement. “This is just another way that Pizza Hut is making it easier for pizza fans to get a better pizza.”
Better is certainly debatable, but the temperature is a guarantee with the chain’s commitment to improve the quality and accuracy of their delivery experience. Nearly 14,000 drivers will be hired by end of year to carry out Pizza Hut’s latest algorithm for ensuring on-time pizza arrivals. In celebration of these “multi-faceted” advances in delivery technology, the company has debuted a Pizza Parka complete with the following features:
- Heat Lover’s triple-layer insulation with 3M Thinsulate (the same material found in the pouch)
- Weather-resistant outer crust
- Easy order window to allow users to order pizza from the sleeve
- Marinara splash guard to protect your phone when ordering
- Napkin gaiter
- Dual parmesan and red pepper pockets
- Oven-hot lining
- Interior pizza pocket
- Heat sealed seams
“What better way to showcase how hot our new delivery system keeps our pizzas than outfitting some of our biggest fans with a winter parka made from the same materials,” said Allen. “The Pizza Parka is going to keep the lucky recipients hot in the same cold-weather elements that our pizzas often endure on the delivery trip from our restaurants to their front doors.”
Through the end of National Pizza Month, customers who place an online order will be entered for a chance to win the winter accessory you never knew you needed in life. You can also tweet the pizza slice and flame emoji to @PizzaHut to enter.
Who needs a fireplace, hot cocoa, or long underwear when you can just wrap yourself in a pizza delivery pouch?
