Pizza Hut partners with Menulog to ramp up delivery
Pizza Hut has partnered with Australian food ordering platform, Menulog, to ramp up its delivery offering through Menulog’s sites: Menulog.com.au and EatNow.com.au.
There are now 250 Pizza Hut stores live across the platforms and an additional 70 planned. Menulog has partnerships with over 8000 restaurant brands, giving it national reach and scale.
“Pizza is Australia’s favourite meal for home delivery – in fact, it’s already the most-ordered dish through Menulog,” Pizza Hut CEO Lisa Ransom said. “This new partnership is a great way to give our customers a more convenient way of ordering from our largest-ever network of stores across Australia.”
Menulog’s commercial director Rory Murphy described the Pizza Hut partnership as part of a growing trend of nationally established outlets coming onto the Menulog and EatNow platforms. And it’s a trend he sees increasing in 2017.
“We’re looking forward to continuing to work with local franchises, to not only help drive orders and grow profitability for restaurant owners, but to continue to offer consumers a greater choice of cuisine for pickup and delivery in their local area,” Murphy said.
The Menulog partnership follows Pizza Hut’s acquisition of the Eagle Boys’ chain earlier this year. The transformation of 50 Eagle Boys stores into Pizza Hut locations will boost the brand’s network to 320 locations across Australia.
