Pizza Hut Testing Beer, Wine Delivery

Pizza Hut Will Now Deliver Cold Beer and Wine to Pair With Your Pie

Pizza Hut is letting customers in certain test markets include alcoholic beverages for delivery along with their pizza.

Pizza Hut reported flat US same-store sales in the latest quarter, when Domino's Pizza's domestic units reported a rise of 8.4 percent.

The company said it was starting the booze delivery in Phoenix, Ariz., and hoped to expand within the next year.

In Phoenix, the initial beer selection will be six-packs of Budweiser, Bud Light, Shock Top and Kilt Lifter, a local favorite. Only beer is available now, for $10.99 a six pack.

Owned by Yum! Brand, CNN notes that Pizza Hut is performing worse than the company's other chains, KFC and Taco Bell. During the summer, the pizza chain announced that it would be hiring 14,000 more drivers around the country by the end of 2017. Its biggest competitors Dominos and Papa John's will only delivery soft drinks and bottled water shows each of their websites.

Rival Papa John's global sells beer and wine at a handful of locations in the western United States and at locations in Latin America, China and Russian Federation.

Stores will have to obtain a license to distribute alcohol, though Bourgeois told CNNMoney that many locations already have them. Customers also have to have their IDs ready at the door to take advantage of delivery.

Pizza Hut will also have to make sure that all its drivers that deliver beer and wine are 21 years of age or older.
