The pizza guys, who offer a pizza made from the ingredients of a particular pizza restaurant, are the most successful pizza delivery company in the country, according to new research by Pillsbury Brands, which owns Pillsburger, Red Robin, Papa John’s, and Pizza Hut.
In 2015, Pizza Hut’s pizza delivery business had an estimated $4.5 billion in revenue, according a report by the Food Marketing Institute.
Pillsburgers pizzas, by contrast, only earned $5.4 billion in the same year.
Pillingers pizza, on the other hand, has a net profit of $1.3 billion and its profit margin is only 7 percent, according PillsBurger’s report.
That means PillsBURGERS pizza delivered to its customers is made using the ingredients from a pizza restaurant.
In 2016, Pizza Guys pizza deliveries accounted for only 14 percent of total pizza deliveries.
Pizza Guys is also the only pizza delivery service in the United States to receive the No. 1 ranking on The Economist’s 100 Best Restaurants list.
Pushes to increase the pizza delivery industry’s share of the pie pie is already underway in several cities, including San Francisco and Los Angeles.
In December, the Federal Trade Commission announced that it had launched an investigation into the pizza-making business.
“The pizza guys are a major driver of our local economy, providing jobs, housing, and economic growth,” FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez said in a statement.
“But I want to emphasize that they are not the only players in this industry.
We need more pizza delivery providers, not fewer.”
