Pizza Hut President: 'This Environment Is Really Poised Well' For Us

Pizza Hut customers are "super excited" with the prospect of being able to order a pizza with plant-based toppings as part of a nationwide partnership with Beyond Meat Inc, Pizza Hut Interim President Kevin Hochman said Wednesday in a Fox Business interview.

 

Value Proposition: The Yum! Brands, Inc. pizza chain continues to position itself to grab market share in the struggling restaurant industry by offering the convenience of carry-out and delivery at a "really fair price" for "cash-strapped" customers, the executive said.

 

The pizza chain saw a 6% same-store sales growth in the third quarter and this marks the best reading in a "long time."

 

"This environment is really poised well for pizza, as well as our chicken business," he said. "People are looking for comforting meals that they can eat in the comfort and safety of their own home."

 

Recent momentum could not only sustain but expand once a vaccine against the COVID-19 virus makes it safe again for people to return to dine-in establishments. Pizza Hut oversees "several thousand" restaurants with closed or limited dine-in areas.

Weighted blankets are reported stress relievers, with fans and research indicating they have a calming effect.

 

Gravity launched with a Kickstarter campaign in 2017 that raised $4.7 million. In 2018, it was named to Time magazine’s list of Best New Inventions...
