Pizza Hut is expanding its beer delivery service to five new states in anticipation of Super Bowl LIII.
The beer-delivery service, which began in 2017, is expanding to 300 stores in Iowa, Nebraska, North Carolina, Florida and Ohio. More markets will also be available in Arizona and California.
Arizona will be home to 23 delivery locations, including the Downtown Phoenix store where the program was first launched.
All Arizona locations will serve products like Coors Light, Blue Moon and Miller High Life. Certain locations will also serve Budweiser, Bud Light, Shock Top and Kilt Lifter.
In February of 2018, Pizza Hut took over as the official “Pizza Sponsor of the NFL” after Papa Johns ended its NFL deal. The Super Bowl is one of busiest days of the year at the chain, making the beer-delivery service perfect for football fans.
A study cited by Pizza Hut shows that 86% of Americans plan to serve both pizza and beer at their Super Bowl party this year.
Customers can purchase beer without having to purchase a pizza. Prices for a cold-one range from $3 to $4.50 for two-packs and $5.99 to $10.99 for six-packs.
Customers can place their orders conveniently through the Pizza Hut mobile app on Android and iOS. ID’s will be checked when the beer is delivered to ensure no one purchasing the beer is underage.
Pizza Hut is among many food chains adding alcohol to their menus. Other restaurants include Taco Bell, Chipotle Mexican Grill and Shake Shack.
The first phase of the new expansion will be in place for pizza and beer lovers galore starting in mid-January.
Pizza Hut plans to expand the service to 1,000 restaurants by this summer.
