Edinburgh-based @Pizza, co-founded by Bhasker Dhir, is planning to launch the ‘UK’s first drive-thru pizza concept’. It plans to roll it out in retail parks, initially in Birmingham and Edinburgh or Glasgow, using converted shipping containers.
@Pizza currently trades from sites in Charlotte Lane in Edinburgh and the Grand Central shopping centre in Birmingham.
The new concept would enable @Pizza to open sites for its eat-in, takeaway, home delivery and drive-thru offering while providing a safe environment for customers and employees during the pandemic.
The drive-thrus would be able to make up to ten pizzas a minute, with customers offered unlimited options to customise. They would be able to order via an app with the option of collection or delivery to their vehicle.
