DALLAS Pizza Hut has introduced a new application for Facebook that allows consumers to place a delivery order without leaving the social-networking website.
Pizza Hut said it was the fist national pizza chain to introduce the application, which expands the ordering options its customers have.
Pizza Hut also plans to debut a redesigned page on the social-networking site, where users can download the application and add Pizza Hut to their favorites to receive news, promotions and deals from the chain.
Facebook users who become a Pizza Hut “fan” will be entered for a chance to win a $50 Pizza Hut gift card. The chain will give out a gift card to one fan each week through Dec. 31.
Pizza Hut, a division of Yum! Brands Inc., has 6,200 U.S. restaurants and more than 4,000 foreign units.
