Lol. No to 2.50 or 3 per slice. Of course, I won't buy their entire pizzas either.

$3? No way. If I really want mediocre pizza, I can walk to Little Caesar's and get a whole pie for $5.

If it weren't for the fact that Domino's delivers, they wouldn't survive. Pizza Hut went through a period of near extinction, until you saw more of their restaurants offer delivery. People like convenience, even if the quality is lousy.

Despite what people say, I doubt many people do a lot of comparative shopping for a slice of pizza for lunch. They eat what's convenient, based on where they are within crazy limits. You are hungry, meetings all morning and afternoon, you have 10 minutes to eat, you will pay the $3 at the next door Hut. few people are going to even think twice about it. they are selling convenience as much as they are selling pizza. And while it would appear by the results here that few people like Pizza Hut, their real world sales numbers would argue. Don't even kid yourself that this wasn't well thought out and that they will make incremental revenue for slices over their existing standard size pies.

The company’s slices will be made with thinner crusts and a new recipe, and will cost between $2 and $3 each. But considering the ready availability of the dollar slice in big cities like New York, only time will tell if this pricing model holds up in larger markets.

I like the by the slice idea. I tend to overeat pizza, when a pie is in front of me! Yes, I would pay $3 for a decent slice of pizza. unfortunately, Pizza Hut is not decent pizza.

Around here you can get two slices and a drink for $5. $3 per slice seems high. Especially since the local pizza places make much better pizza than PH.

Yep, I can get a slice of decent pie for 1.18.

For eat-in, a local pizzeria has an all-you-can eat pizza buffet for only $4.99 on Mondays and Tuesdays. Several different kinds - superior to Pizza Hut, in my opinion.
YES! I have Little Caesar's next to my apartment, but I don't really like the Hot-N-Ready for $5 (love the Italian Cheesebread though). I prefer getting a large two-topping at the local pizza place for $8 instead. I just got done devouring a bacon and black olive za. Actually I have so many pizza options where I live with a good mix of all the chains, local places, and gas stations that are known for pizza (slices for $2) that I can't ever fathom resorting to a $3 slice from Pizza Hut.

I understand you can get a whole pizza at Little Ceasers for 5 but I think many single people who would not eat the whole pizza and are on the run so don't have a fridge for left overs would buy a single slice from a pizza place even if it were per slice more money. I do think the single slices need to be larger if charging 3 then the average pie slice.

I'd pay more if the slice was real good. One pizzeria by my school sold these "Cheesesteak Pizza" slices for 3.50 but it was well worth the price cause it was very tasty and filling. You could eat one in the morning and be full for the entire day
