This week, Pizza Hut Restaurants has started to welcome its guests back, with over a 100 of its Huts reopening for dine-in within the next week. All Huts have new measures in place to ensure guest and team member safety. The popular casual dining chain also confirms it will be taking part in the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ initiative announced by the government yesterday.
Famous for its iconic Unlimited Lunchtime Buffet and Ice Cream Factory, Pizza Hut Restaurants has been able to maintain the unlimited pizza offering with it’s new ‘Bluffet’ concept, whilst minimising contact and guests travelling across the restaurant. Diners will be able to remain seated whilst being brought food and drink straight to their table.
The new Bottomless ‘Bluffet’ offer is available for both adults (£8.50) and children (£5.50), weekdays until 15:00. The offer includes unlimited individual sized pizzas, a bowl of salad, plus free tortilla chips and a basket of garlic bread sticks, all brought to the table by a member of staff.
On arrival, guests will be asked to enter the restaurant via separate lanes depending on whether they’re ordering a takeaway or wanting to dine-in. All will be greeted by a host at the front door, where dine-in customers can pick up their own pre-wrapped cutlery before heading to their table. Once seated, guests can now order through Pizza Hut’s new mobile app, developed especially for reopening.
Those with children will be provided with a kid’s activity sheet including single-use or take-home crayons. Pizza Hut Restaurants also knows how popular the Ice Cream Factory is with families, so to avoid disappointment has introduced the ‘Ice Cream Builder’. To allow children (and adults) the freedom to still create their own ice cream masterpieces, servers will bring a bowl of soft scoop ice cream and a variety of sweets to the table, to be built and mixed as diners wish.
Kathryn Austin, Chief People and Marketing officer at Pizza Hut Restaurants, commented saying: “We’re delighted to start re-opening our restaurants across the UK this week. The new Eat Out to Help Out scheme, announced yesterday by Rishi Sunak, will also help us reunite guests with their Pizza Hut favourites and we look forward to updating everyone on how this will work once we receive further government guidance.”
In line with government guidance, Pizza Hut Restaurants has implemented stringent social distancing and hygiene measures to best minimise the risk of transmission. All Team Members will have a daily temperature check ahead of their shift to ensure they are fit to work; and Wellness Hosts have also been introduced at all dine-in restaurants – a new role specifically created to minimise the risk of Covid-19 transmission.
