"We know that beer and wine go great with pizza and we're uniquely positioned to deliver these given many of our restaurants already serve beer and wine", Stacy Lynn Bourgeois, the director of brand marketing for Pizza Hut, said in a press release.

The hope is that by adding beer and wine to its delivery menu, the company will have an extra edge over competitors.
