Pizza Hut’s embrace of third-party delivery works in its favor

The pizza chain’s sales improved last quarter as a lot more of its restaurants worked with delivery aggregators.

Traffic was down nearly 7% at the chain after it cut back on discounts, but executives say the new strategy is helping the bottom line.

Just more than half of the family-dining chain’s restaurants are open all night and executives are taking steps to get Denny’s back to being a 24-hour diner.

A Deeper Dive: This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast features a discussion on the blurring lines between quick service and fast casual.

The chain has doubled down on value and is getting good results: Three-year same-store sales set a new record in the third quarter.

But the giant distributor is cautious given the operating environment and prepared to cut costs in a potential economic downturn.

The casual-dining chain said consumers are accepting of price hikes even as sales slowed. It will need to take even more to fight off inflation.

The Bottom Line: The world’s biggest restaurant chain and the world’s biggest pizza chain are increasingly going head-to-head for budget consumers.

The Bottom Line: The fast-casual chain generates nearly $5 million in sales per unit selling chicken fingers. But that’s not the most impressive thing about it.
