Pizza Hut Delivery is to enter the grab-and-go market following a franchise deal with EG Group that will see eight stores open in petrol filling stations on a trial basis.

Operated by EG Group, the new stores will offer pizzas including Margherita, Pepperoni, Supreme, Meat Feast, Veggie Supreme and the Beyond Meat Supreme pizza both by the slice and whole. 

Approximately 90 jobs will be created in areas across the UK, with the first location set to open in Hartlepool in 'the coming weeks'.

A travel hub specialist, EG Group already has a strong relationship with Pizza Hut Delivery’s owner Yum! having rolled out a large number of KFC sites across its estate.

The new format is distinct from Pizza Hut Delivery’s Pizza Hut Express format, which was conceived for shopping malls, transport hubs and entertainment venues and allows customers to both eat-in and carry-out. 

As a franchisee, EG Group will keep Pizza Hut’s branding and menu while ‘providing a new option for customers to order on the go’.

This will allow ‘Pizza Hut Delivery to further adapt its offerings in line with customer demand and the wider industry trend towards convenience’.

“We are extremely excited to partner with EG Group to create further opportunities for our communities and continue investing in the brand our fans know and love,” says Neil Manhas, general manager at Pizza Hut Delivery in the UK. 

“EG Group has a wealth of experience in forecourt retail, in operating food service and their expertise as a global leader in this specific type of retail makes them the ideal partner to lead us into this new market. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to adapting to customer demand by expanding our offerings.”
