Pizza Hut develops mobile pizza factory

Pizza Hut and Toyota have joined forces in the USA to create a mobile pizza factory, introduced at Toyota’s 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show presentation. The zero-emission Tundra PIE Pro has the ability to deliver pizza hot from the oven at any location.

“We are exploring next-generation solutions and automation to support and streamline our delivery business in the future,” said Nicolas Burquier, chief customer and operations officer for Pizza Hut US. “The Tundra PIE Pro and our work with Toyota are only helping accelerate our commitment to transform both the team member and the customer experience at Pizza Hut.”

The Tundra PIE Pro contains a refrigerator, robotic arms and a conveyor oven, all powered by a hydrogen fuel-cell electric powertrain. A pizza takes between six and seven minutes from start to finish.
