Pizza Hut pouch heats up delivery

Pizza Hut pouch heats up delivery

A Pizza Hut spokesman says more than anything else, consumers want a hot pizza.

The new and improved Pizza Hut pizza boxes feature thicker sides to lock in heat and keep the pizza in place throughout the delivery process.

The tech behind the delivery pouch is made from the same type of material of space blankets, winter jackets, and home insulation. So far, it has hired nearly 7,000 new drivers, and expects to hire that many more by the end of the year, according to the company.

Pizza Hut also is adding more delivery drivers.

Both the delivery pouch and the parka combine 3M Thinsulate Insulation thermal technology, often used in winter jackets, with a PET Aluminum Radiant Barrier, a material that keeps astronauts warm.

The inside of the toasty pouch, which works with a re-engineered box and crisp-sheet, is guaranteed to be 15 degrees hotter than traditional pizza pouches, the release said.

Customers can only get a parka in during October as it is National Pizza Month.
