Why deliver a pizza to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro?
Because it’s there, and, for Pizza Hut, also to celebrate its new store in Tanzania, the African nation where Mt. Kilimanjaro rises more than 19,340 feet.
With a multi-day ascent that ended May 8, a team of employees and Randall Blackford, general Manager of Pizza Hut Africa, landed the Guinness World Record for the highest altitude pizza delivery.
The team was led by professional guides to the top, where slices of pepperoni pizza were passed around.
Pizza Hut, with its entry into Tanzania, is now in the triple digits as far as the countries that have access to the chain’s bacon spinach alfredo pizza with a bacon-stuffed crust, and other sumptuous concoctions.
