PLANO, Texas, May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pizza Hut, the pizza restaurant that serves and delivers more pizzas than any other pizza company in the world, is encouraging fans to kick off the weekend with a party…a pizza party, that is. Today, May 19, is National Pizza Party Day, and there's no better way to celebrate than serving a slice – or seven, or seventy – for friends, family and coworkers.
But Pizza Hut already knows America is a pro at pizza parties:
- An order for 13 Pizza Hut pizzas (or more) is placed roughly twice a week at locations across the country – which is enough food for 50 people
- East Coast U.S. loves a good pizza party – fans in Washington D.C., Maryland, New Jersey and New York place the most orders for pizza bundle deals each week
- The largest Pizza Hut pizza order in the last 10 years included 1,400 pizzas, or 11,200 slices
- The Pizza Hut Big Dinner Box is a party favorite – more than 54 million have been ordered, since 2012
No matter how small or big pizza lovers celebrate, Pizza Hut offers delicious deals to get any National Pizza Party Day party started – like a Large Two-Topping pizza for $7.99 when ordered online at www.PizzaHut.com or via the mobile app, and the Big Dinner Box for just $19.99, which features two medium one-topping pizzas, an order of breadsticks and a choice of wings, pasta, or a third pizza. Both are available for delivery or carryout.
"More pizzas equal more fun, which is why we love National Pizza Party Day," said Doug Terfehr, Sr. Director of Public Relations, Pizza Hut. "With great deals and a suite of easy ways to order, the perfect pizza party is just a few taps or clicks away."
