Pizza Hut testing out pie-making delivery truck
PLANO, Texas - Talk about fresh out of the oven!
A pizza delivery truck is in the works to bake your order on the way to your home.
Plano-based Pizza Hut and Toyota teamed up to make a truck that bakes pizza while it's being delivered.
The Tundra PIE Pro is a zero-emissions truck with a pizza-making operation in the truck bed. A robot takes a pizza out of a fridge in the truck and puts it into an oven. After the order is placed, it takes about seven minutes for the pizza to be ready.
"Nothing tastes better than a fresh Pizza Hut pizza straight out of the oven," said Marianne Radley, Chief Brand Officer, Pizza Hut. "The Tundra PIE Pro brings to life our passion for innovation not just on our menu but in digital and delivery in order to provide the best possible customer experience."
In the future
But don't expect the PIE Pro in front of your house just yet. The pizza chain is still testing out prototypes before it hits the road.
