November 12, 2015 // Franchising.com // PLANO, TEXAS – Starting today, pizza lovers everywhere will have a new item to add to their holiday wish lists: Pizza Hut’s new Triple Treat Box, a uniquely-packaged pizza “box” that features pizzas, desserts, sides and more.
Available while supplies last, the tri-level, holiday-themed Triple Treat Box includes two medium one-topping pizzas (available on Hand Tossed, Thin N’ Crispy® or Pan), an order of breadsticks or flavor sticks and a Hershey’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie, all for just $19.99.
“What the holidays are all about can get lost sometimes in the hustle and bustle of the season, but at Pizza Hut, we want to help make every day feel like a holiday,” said Jared Drinkwater, vice president of marketing, Pizza Hut. “That’s why we created the Triple Treat Box. It’s a delicious, easy meal to share with family and friends, and while it’s always fun to get pizza, getting pizza in a special gift-wrapped box can add even a little more excitement to pizza night.”
The Triple Treat Box can be completed with a pair of medium one-topping pizzas featuring the following fresh ingredients: Mediterranean black olives, Peruvian cherry peppers, fresh mushrooms, fresh spinach, fresh red onions, fresh green bell peppers, sliced banana peppers, sweet pineapple, sliced jalapeño peppers, and diced roma tomatoes as well as pepperoni, Italian sausage, premium salami, classic meatballs, slow-roasted ham, hardwood smoked bacon, grilled chicken, beef and seasoned pork. Also, all Pizza Hut pizzas can complemented with a variety of crust flavors, sauces and drizzles. Crust flavors include: Ranch, Smokehouse BBQ, Hut Favorite, Toasted Parmesan, Salted Pretzel, Honey Sriracha, Toasted Asiago, Fiery Red Pepper, Toasted Cheddar and Garlic Buttery Blend. Sauces are Classic Marinara, Premium Crushed Tomato, Creamy Garlic Parmesan, Honey Sriracha, Barbeque and Buffalo and drizzles include Balsamic, Honey Sriracha, Barbeque and Buffalo.
The Hershey’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie, which debuted in 2014, is cut into eight slices and is loaded with an average of 165 Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips per cookie, offering a delicious and sweet dessert as part of the Triple Treat Box. Pizza Hut breadsticks, which is the company’s most popular side item, are available with the Triple Treat Box or customers can opt for the brand’s unique Flavor Sticks, which come in the following flavors: Hut Favorite, Fiery Red Pepper, Toasted Cheddar, Toasted Parmesan, Toasted Asiago and Honey Sriracha.
“No pizza company can match the customization and flavor options available at Pizza Hut,” said Drinkwater. “We believe the Triple Treat Box brings the pizza and products that customers have always loved from Pizza Hut in a very fun, inviting holiday box that definitely can make every day a holiday.”
Earlier this year, Pizza Hut announced the removal of artificial flavors and colors from its core pizzas, the first national pizza company to make that commitment. The company also has the world’s busiest website in the pizza category at www.pizzahut.com. Pizza Hut was the first company to launch internet ordering and was the first brand to rollout a pizza ordering App. The company has also tested ways for customers to track and follow their delivery driver all the way to their door through proprietary GPS-like tracking built into the driver experience.
“The backbone of our business is our customers and everything we have developed or are developing is focused on making their experience great every time at Pizza Hut,” Drinkwater added.
To support the introduction of the Triple Treat Box, Pizza Hut will introduce new TV creative starring an assortment of celebrities who help a family make every day a holiday. The ads will begin airing the week of November 15.
The Triple Treat Box is available at Pizza Hut locations across the country beginning November 9. For more information, visit www.pizzahut.com.
