Pizza Hut Restaurants will roll out MasterCard’s Qkr! with Masterpass into its U.K. restaurants as of March 19, according to a press release.
Qkr! is a mobile ordering and payments platform, developed by MasterCard Labs, that enables consumers to order, pay and split bills from their smartphone without having to queue or wait for a server.
“Rolling out Qkr is a fantastic opportunity for us to continue the innovation journey we are on as a brand,” Keith Frimley, IT director at Pizza Hut Restaurants, said in the release. “Over the last six years we have invested over 60 million pounds (US$83.4 million) in transforming our restaurants and menu, and this allows us to continue to improve the service and experience we offer our guests as well as embracing technology, which has become so central to modern culture.”
Pizza Hut joins a growing band of U.K. leading fast casual restaurants offering customers the chance to pay with Qkr. Amongst others, they include wagamama, ASK Italian, Young’s Pubs, Zizzi, Byron, Bird, and gastropub chain New World Trading.
