Pizza Hut Restaurant Vs Pizza Hut Delivery (PHD)


If I say “pizza”, what is the first thing coming up in your mind?  Pizza Hut? PHD? Or Domino’s Pizza? I think most of Indonesian people will think about the Pizza Hut, since it is the most famous and longest existed pizza restaurant in Indonesia. But what about Domino’s Pizza? Well, Domino’s Pizza is much well known in other countries especially western countries. However, in Indonesia, Domino’s Pizza is only available in three cities, which is in Jakarta, Bandung, and Bali. Thus, may be many Indonesian people who do not live in those cities and have never visited those cities will prefer Pizza Hut to Domino’s Pizza as their favorite pizza restaurant.

Pizza Hut is an international franchise company originally from America, was founded in 1958 by brothers Dan and Frank Carney in their hometown of Wichita, Kansas. They started their business with partner John Bender by opening the first Pizza Hut restaurant which was incorporated by the name of Pizza Hut, Inc. and opened the first franchise unit in Topeka a year later in 1959. As of 2012, there were more than 6,000 Pizza Hut restaurants in the United States, and more than 5,139 store locations in 94 other countries and territories around the world.

Aside from Pizza Hut restaurants, there is also a subsidiary brand, which is Pizza Hut Delivery or PHD. PHD’s specializes in express delivery (30 minutes from customer’s call order. Whereas Pizza Hut is in the concept of  family-style-dine-in.

The differences between Pizza Hut Restaurant and Pizza Hut Delivery (PHD) will be explained by the table below.

Family-style-dine-in (but also provide take away and delivery order). Specialize in delivery order but also provide take away service.


Higher cost for building (wider space), maintenance, employees, appliances (tables, chairs, plates, and cutleries), interior costs and so on. Lower cost because it does not need any details like restaurants.

Delivery Service’s Payment

Cash only. Cash and credit card.

Based on research, Pizza Hut, Inc. made Pizza Hut Delivery to overcome the low customers satisfaction from delivery service (long durability because of many orders). As a result, Pizza Hut Delivery (PHD) can handle the problems, thus the customers can eat the pizza  while it is still fresh from the oven.
