The intensive hiring effort will bring in approximately 14,000 new drivers across the Pizza Hut system.

The new delivery driver hires will include full and part-time positions and are based on the needs of the individual restaurant and market.

In addition to increasing its delivery driver fleet, Pizza Hut has developed a proprietary delivery network algorithm that will significantly change its pizza delivery business.

The new delivery network algorithm is a multi-faceted technology system that drastically improves the accuracy and reliability of Pizza Hut deliveries.

The system is capable of predicting how long a delivery will take and will account for variable factors such as weather, construction, traffic and other irregularities in the delivery pattern to enable safe, accurate deliveries.

The new delivery driver technology will be available in all 6,300 U.S. Pizza Hut restaurant locations immediately and enhances all parts of the delivery equation at Pizza Hut.

Pizza Hut has also transformed its online mapping and location services with Google Maps technology to improve Pizza Hut's ability to accurately locate customers and identify the most convenient restaurant locations for both faster delivery and carry-out options.
