Pizza Hut recently completed a successful pilot with RightHear to make their stores accessible to the blind and visually impaired. After an overwhelming response from the initial 16 locations, Pizza Hut have now expanded to all 97 branches and franchise-owned restaurants throughout Israel!
Which means anyone with orientation challenges can enjoy a slice of pizza without worrying about how to navigate themselves around the venue.
Why Pizza Hut?
Each day, Pizza Hut serves over 1 million pizzas around the world. And in Israel, they are the largest pizza chain in the country.
Now, that didn’t happen by accident. Pizza Hut is dedicated to providing great food, delivering excellent customer service, and giving back to the community.
Their commitment to accessibility is apparent across their website, their call centers, and now their restaurants.
So it was a perfect pairing for RightHear and Pizza Hut to partner together.
“We are committed to making our stores accessible to the blind and visually impaired. We’re thrilled to partner with Right-Hear to create an inclusive environment across all 97 Pizza Hut locations in Israel!”
– Inbal Stern, Pizza Hut Marketing Manager, Israel
So how did RightHear do it?
That’s a lot of stores to make accessible in a short amount of time!
RightHear distributed their self-serve kits to the Branch and Area managers. Using Zoom, RightHear provided real-time guidance every step of the way to correctly install the proprietary technology in every branch.
And it’s that simple. No wires. No internet connection. No fuss.
For users, just download the app from the iOS or Android store, select your preferred language, and you’re ready to go!
So now every single Pizza Hut store in the country is opening its doors to anyone and everyone, including those with low or no vision.
Here is the full list of all the accessible locations in Israel pizzahut.co.il/עלינו/נגישות/. So what are you waiting for? Grab a slice, or two, and let us know about your experience!
