Pizza Hut is Implementing Several Safety Precautions During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Pizza Hut is offering contactless delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic, which allows customers to place an order without worrying about having physical contact with the delivery driver. The pizza chain is also taking extra precautions and implementing new safety measures to protect customers and employees from the coronavirus.
“Our process requires that your pizza leaves our 400+ degree oven and slides hands free into the box so the only person who touches it after it comes out of the oven, is you,” the Pizza Hut website states. “Pizza Hut’s industry-leading hygiene policies have always required strict food safety, hand hygiene and cleaning and sanitation procedures including making contactless soap and contactless hand sanitizer available at every sink location in our kitchens.”
The chain also has employees wearing masks, using single-use disposable gloves and doing frequent temperature checks. All stores have also installed counter shields and practice social distancing guidelines to keep customers safe during the pandemic.
