June 16, 2020. Pizza Hut, the world’s largest pizza chain, has begun to use five biogas-fueled vehicles for home deliveries in Finland. With the gas vehicles, the company restarted home deliveries in Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Tampere. The company’s desire to cut its environmental burden and the strongly growing network of gas filling stations contributed to the decision.
Pizza Hut Finland is using gas-fueled vehicles introduced during the spring to help lower its carbon footprint. The company’s decision to acquire gas-fueled vehicles for home deliveries was driven by efforts to reduce the burden on the environment. With the SEAT vehicles, the company re-instated its own home deliveries in Finland after a pause of 15 years. The growing network of gas filling stations was instrumental in the acquisition of the new fleet.
“Pizza Hut is the world’s largest and most convenient pizza chain. We want to show our heartfelt appreciation of our customers, our people and of the surrounding society and nature. When we were planning to restart our own home deliveries, it was important for us in particular to use gas vehicles and low-emission biogas as the fuel. A few years ago, however, the network of gas filling stations was not yet wide enough and so we thought about the matter for a bit longer. During the spring of this year, we noticed that the location of existing filling stations is ideal for us and so we got the ball rolling at speed,” says Johan Sirén, Brand Manager, Pizza Hut Finland.
The new gas vehicles have already received positive feedback both from drivers and customers alike. Driving comfort and environmental awareness have reaped plaudits.
