July 17 is World Emoji Day, and Pizza Hut is pulling out all of the stops to ensure that its customers can celebrate the holiday in style.
According to The Sun, six Pizza Hut restaurants across the United Kingdom will be offering patrons the chance to order from an entirely emoji-based menu from now until July 17. The limited-edition offering was designed as a celebration of both World Emoji day and Unicode’s recent release of 72 new emojis.
In the words of Kath Austin, Pizza Hut’s director of HR and marketing, “Emojis have been named the world’s fastest growing language, so what better way to honor World Emoji Day and the recent release of 72 new emojis than by creating our very own emoji-themed menu for customers to decipher and have some fun with. We have a huge focus on menu innovation and having already launched a brand new menu recently, we hope customers enjoy decrypting the emoji version as much as we did creating it!”
While emojis have become an important part of our texting and social media language, we think that pizza-ordering might be their true calling. After all, the only thing more fun than eating pizza might be using emojis to order that pizza!
Currently, the emoji menu is available at Pizza Hut restaurants located in The Strand in London, Birmingham’s Bullring, Edinburgh’s Hanover Street, Manchester’s Fountain Street, Liverpool’s Paradise Street, and Cardiff’s Queens Street. However, if the menu catches on, there’s no telling where it might appear next.
