As it is National Curry Week, a seven-day celebration of world foods, we at Pizza News thought we would see what was going online the food industry, discovering that Pizza Hut had gone to great lengths to entice curry-loving customers.
Launching a special National Curry Week menu the Pizza chain are expecting big orders for these new products, with Head Office feeling rather optimistic.
Kath Austin, Director of HR and Marketing at Pizza Hut Restaurants, said: “We wanted to create something innovative to celebrate National Curry Week and the reopening of our flagship new look Hut in the heart of Birmingham, and these dishes are the perfect fit.
“It took our team over 15 hours to get the flavour combinations just right. Naan pizzas are a first for us so we’re very proud of them and can’t wait to hear what people think.”
Tej Randeva, Director at Maharaja, an Indian food catering company shed some light on Piza Hut’s motives:
‘Having been involved in the pizza-chain and curry industry I can completely understand why Pizza Hut have decided to launch such a product. With curry being the UK’s favourite dish, followed by pizza, National Curry Week is a way to get amongst another market, those that may not think of pizza as a first takeaway choice’.
