India Pizza Huts To Serve Wine And Beer In All Outlets

India’s Economic Times reports, “Pizza Hut is all set to serve wine and beer at its outlets across the country, after pilot-testing in Delhi and Bangalore. “We have just started serving wine and beer to our customers at two Delhi stores and wine at five stores in Bangalore. We will be adding new such stores. The idea is to have this service across all our outlets,” Pizza Hut Head (Marketing) Sunay Bhasin told PTI here.”

“The popular quick service restaurant (QSR) chain Pizza Hut had applied for permit to offer wine and beer at its outlets last October. Its parent, the American restaurant chain Yum Restaurants, also operates three other QSR brands: KFC, Taco Bell and Long John Silvers in the country.  Bhasin said the company would expand its presence into Tier-II and Tier-III cities by 2015, as demand is growing in small towns due to rising income levels and changing lifestyles and food habits.”
