A spokesperson for Pizza Hut has confirmed that the current lengthy waiting times for deliveries are due to customers just ordering a bottle of Pepsi. 

Speaking to Southend News Network earlier today, Andrew D’eauborl added that customers who are only after the carbonated beverage are putting a ‘massive strain’ on their fleet of motorbikes and V-reg Clios.

He said: ‘Last night, a family in Southend waited for 90 minutes to get two Hawaiian deep pans and some potato wedges.’

‘At the same time we had a queue of delivery drivers waiting to collect their order from their local branch because the fridge can only take one person at a time.’

’Our message to members of the public is simple: Please consider popping to your local Happy Shopper if you don’t want any food. Shite sight cheaper as well.’
