For wing-loving basketball fans who think bellying up to a sports bar or picking up from a wing restaurant is the only way to get their hands on quality chicken wings during this year’s men’s basketball tournament, life just got a lot saucier.
Pizza Hut announced that it’s WingStreet concept has been rolled out nationally, now present in more than 5,000 restaurants across America. That’s right, a whole new chicken kitchen is available at Pizza Hut. Now customers can get an order of eight WingStreet wings with choice of any sauce–starting at just $5 and have them delivered, just like their favorite Pizza Hut pizzas.
The award-winning WingStreet wings* are kitchen-fried and tossed with a choice of one of eight sauces to give customers a wing-joint-quality experience from America’s largest pizza chain. The sauce flavors include: Buffalo Mild, Buffalo Medium, Buffalo Burnin’ Hot, Spicy Asian, Spicy BBQ, Honey BBQ, Lemon Pepper and Garlic Parmesan. Consumers can also choose from several varieties of wings including Traditional, Bone-Out or Crispy Bone-In.
“People are serious about their wings, and the pizza category as a whole has not delivered a quality chicken product that consumers demand,” said Jared Drinkwater, Senior Director of Marketing, Pizza Hut. “But that all changes now that our WingStreet wings are available in more than 5,000 Pizza Hut restaurants nationwide. We pride ourselves in being the only national pizza chain to offer delicious, kitchen-fried chicken wings with a variety of sauces that live up to what wing lovers want. And the fact that we’ll deliver them to your door sets us apart from even the most respected wing joints in America.”
Sportscaster and radio host Scott Van Pelt stars in the brand’s new ad campaign that features wing experts in many forms, all searching for kitchen-fried, impeccably-sauced wings. In addition to starring in commercials, Van Pelt is helping Pizza Hut and WingStreet rally support of the men’s tournament.
Throughout the tournament, Pizza Hut also made daily free deliveries of WingStreet wings to select fans who tweeted @PizzaHut using the hashtag #WingsDelivered. Details about the sweepstakes associated with tweeting will be announced soon.
