If I can get an entire decent large pizza from my local pizzeria for $5-$8, there's no way I'm paying $3 for a mediocre slice of za from Pizza Hut. They need to lower the price a scoach. It can't be any more than 2 bucks and should be more like $1 if they want to attract the budget consumer (similar to the dollar menu at other fast food places). Of course, it's still the number 1 pizza chain in the world, so people will buy these slices. I just won't be one of them.

this is the year 2014- there's a reason they are doing this now- they have known for decades, that they could sell single slices ,,but they resisted,,,they want the sit down customer that will drop 20-30.00
also i think they made this decision,,3.00, its high enough , so someone will figure they will get a better value if they trade up- or sit for a personal pan pizza..

as one poster said,,if they REALLY wanted to sell single slice pizza, they would introduce it and bang it out for 99 cents a slice...
this is what they should do,,,make friends first, then the profits will come..

to me, theyve made a calculated error.... at 3.00, they are instantly higher than anyone i know that sells a slice.. i wont buy it-
yes, they have made a grave error- ive seen p.h. open then 6 months later they close..
they should have a 4.98 all you can eat pizza slices -like on a sunday, they'd be packed..


they should learn from mcdonalds,,,cheap will get many thru the door,,then they will trade up

I'm thinking they'll probably pass on that model.

Sbarro, the private-equity-owned pizza chain, filed for bankruptcy on Monday as it looked to cut its debt and restructure its balance sheet.

I would not, but I could see people at malls or drunks at 2AM stopping by for a slice.

I wonder if the slices will be the size of Sbarros? I have not had either Pizza Hut or Sbarros lately but if I recall Sbarro's are larger then even the large size of Pizza Hut. In my area many Pizza Huts went out of business. I remember growing up Little Ceasers had where you could buy 2 slices of with regular or thick. Not sure if that is still available. Having the option of buying buy the slice is a nice one.

Nope. Pizza by the slice is pretty much normal here in the northeast. You might pay $3.00 a slice for a slice of gourmet pizza, but plain cheese? No way I'm paying more than $2, and it had better taste superior to what I'd get at pizza hut.

The only time I'd buy Sbarros is at rest stops when the choice is Sbarros or McDonald's.

Pizza Hut, $3.00 pizza, and a $2.50 coke to go with it! Pizza Hut model needs to change, they were big in the 70's and 80's, when times were good. Now, people who eat pizza are either at California Pizza Kitchen, or upscale equivalent, local pizza place, or Little Ceassar's, and Papa Murphy's, where you can use EBT for pizza.

Last time I had Pizza Hut, I was with small children, they begged, I gave in....I like Pizza Hut even less than I like being with hordes of small children.

No Pizza Hurl for me, but my local Winco supermarket's Leonardi's Pizza sells a very large double slice and an orange whip for $3.12. That was lunch today after shopping: pepperoni,, sausage, black olives and bell peppers.

I haven't eaten at Pizza Hut in years so my answer of course is NO!

Send Bill DiBlasio to Pizza Hut with his knife and fork.

I wouldn't touch Pizza Hut or any other chain Pizza even if they paid me $3.00 a slice. I have a few favorite places, but mostly I go to my local one which has been around for years, owned and food prepared by the same Italian family. They charge $2.25 for a regular slice and they are always busy.
