  • more people are cooking their own meals now so not many people work for delievery. It took a pizza over an hour to come to my place because of less staff... sucks!

  • I'm sure the economy has a lot to do with it.

  • From what I saw of my friends who worked Pizza Hut in high school... cos they're taking their time getting high in the bathroom first. :0

  • I've noticed for the last few years, it doesn't matter where I live, I never seem to be within the delivery zone. At first it was because they had to drive through a bad neighborhood to get to my house, and now it's because I live 10 miles away from all the pizza places. Ugh. I guess they are just lazy nowadays.

  • We've never had a problem. We order pizza almost weekly (had it last week Thursday and again on Wednesday because I was too tired to cook). We order from a local place.

  • Right after my husband was sent on a new job 7 hours away we tried to get a pizza delivered to us. We were told that they didn't delivery across the interstate,lmao. We were maybe two miles from Pizza Hut. It was ridiculous.

  • Pizza Hut is great. You can order online and you can preorder so it comes at the time you want it to.

  • My son delivered pizzas in college to help pay expenses. He was robbed 3 times in 8 months. He quit. So did everyone else. They can't keep drivers hired. They have decreased delivery zones for financial reasons as well as liablility. They can still advertise 'we deliver' it just isn't to most of us.
