Pizza Hut to Offer Online Takeout and Delivery Orders

PacPizza LLC, a Pizza Hut franchise operator in Northern California, launched a Web site for takeout orders and delivery by teaming up with cybermeals online food company.

This service, said to be the first of its kind for Pizza Hut restaurants, will be available to consumers in the Bay Area and Sacramento.

Consumers logging on to the site will be asked to enter their address, zip code, and e-mail address, which will be stored for future orders. The site then uses navigation software to locate the Pizza Hut restaurant nearest to them. Consumers can then "point and click" through full Pizza Hut menus and specials and enter an order for either takeout or delivery.

The cybermeals team builds Web sites for restaurants around the country and uses state-of-the-art geopositioning software to help cyberspace consumers find restaurants for take-out or delivery in their own neighborhoods.

PacPizza owns 148 Pizza Huts in Northern California, Southern Oregon, and Western Nevada.
