Dallas-Based Pizza Hut Don't Want No Pistols With the Pepperoni
Brad Zaun, a Republican State Sen. from Urbandale, Iowa, says he's "going to be watching Pizza Hut," and not in a good way either. And, no, he's not referring to the Dallas-based chain's ridiculous April Fool's joke involving a name change. Nope, what he's referring to is Pizza Hut's policy that doesn't allow drivers to carry guns, no matter what. Because, see, the chain has suspended a Des Moines driver for firing "multiple shots" last week at a dude who put a gun to the driver's head and demanded all his dough after the gunman and a woman faked the delivery call. And Zaun ain't none too happy about its policy. To which Pizza Hut says, Tough pepperoni.
Vonnie Walbert, vice president of human resources at Pizza Hut’s corporate offices in Dallas, said last week that employees are not allowed to carry guns “because we believe that that is the safest for everybody.”
