DALLAS // PRNewswire // -- As state primaries heat up across the country and the American public grapples with today's issues, Pizza Hut is reaching out to voters with another monumental task -- saving the $10 Any Pizza deal. Pizza Hut announced today that its famous $10 Any Pizza deal is on the ballot in 2010. Supporters can participate by visiting Facebook.com/PizzaHut today through June 10 and voting 'YES' to keep the $10 Any Pizza deal.
In keeping with the American democratic process, the outcome of this important pizza poll will be decided by majority vote.
"We started a pizza revolution when we introduced the $10 Any Pizza deal," said Brian Niccol, Pizza Hut Chief Marketing Officer. "Now it's up to the people to put pizza first and vote 'YES' to keep the $10 Any Pizza deal on the menu at Pizza Hut."
To help push this issue to the top of the political agenda, Pizza Hut Tweetologist Alexa Robinson will serve as campaign manager for the $10 Any Pizza deal and visit communities across the country canvassing for votes.
"Voting is one of the most basic American rights and pizza fans should have the ability to exercise this right as well," Robinson said. "There are many issues being decided at the polls this year, but the future of the $10 Any Pizza deal is at the top of our list. I'll visit Pizza Hut restaurants, national landmarks and political hot spots to gather support for the $10 Any Pizza deal. Join us in putting pizza first in 2010."
