Today we’re announcing that Pizza Hut UK has teamed up with O2 to launch free wifi across its UK Dine-In restaurants. The roll out started this month and is already available in 100 restaurants, with the full deployment expected to be completed in early 2013.
O2 Wifi is free for everyone and was chosen by Pizza Hut for its UK Dine-In restaurants because of the quality of the service, its ease of use and its reliability. Customers sign-up once for O2 Wifi and can then use service in any Pizza Hut UK Dine-In restaurant, or at any of O2’s Wifi estate of hotspots in over 6,000 locations nationwide. Users can also download O2 Wifi’s free iPhone and Android app which allows them to sign up to O2 Wifi.
The wifi roll out is part of Pizza Hut UK’s focus of putting customer service and the customer experience at the heart of the business, and a refurbishment programme which will create an exciting, contemporised environment as part of the next generation of Pizza Hut restaurants in the UK.
Clark Wilson, Head of Marketing at Pizza Hut UK said; “We are delighted to partner with O2 to provide free wifi to our customers. Pizza Hut is a place where people can come together and connect, and now they can be connected to anyone, anywhere when they’re with us. The benefits of the service are extensive – it’s quick and easy to use, and most importantly families can be confident that O2 Wifi really is for all, as the service prevents access to sites with adult content. We want our guests to have fantastic, memorable experiences in our restaurants, and introducing a high quality, free wifi service not only widens what we currently offer, but creates the bases for further interactive experiences in the future.”
Gavin Franks, MD of O2 Wifi added: “We are extremely proud to add Pizza Hut to the O2 Wifi network. Pizza Hut was one of the first hotspots to be switched on outside our O2 Retail estate and we are particularly pleased to have won this business. This is another leading, respected high street brand that joins our growing portfolio. Pizza Hut is an acknowledged family environment and so particularly valued our content protection, which has been employed since we launched.”
PIZZA HUT is the latest partner for O2 Wifi, joining other leading brands to offer the service like McDonald’s, Costa, TONI&GUY, Debenhams, Fuller’s pubs, House of Fraser, All Bar One, Harvester and the busiest streets of central London. In 2012, The O2 Wifi hotspot estate is growing daily and already has hotspots in over 6,000 of the prime high street locations nationwide.
