Pizza delivery

The first time ordering pizza will be the hardest time since you will have to give them your address and other information. However major pizza chains like Pizza hut, Dominos, and Mr.pizza will store your address and other information under your phone number, so if you call again they will just confirm your address with you at the beginning of the call and ask for your order.

Pizza Hut example 1

  • Example when calling the first time

Pizza Hut example 2

As you can hear in this example, if your number was previously stored in their computer, at the beginning of the call they will simply confirm your address rather than ask for it again. Note: The exact name of the officetel was censored.
