Little Caesars unveils pizza portal - the interaction-free way to get a pizza

As if a Hot-N-Ready wasn't hot or ready enough for you, Little Caesars announced on Monday that it is making it even faster to get pizza with the Pizza Portal.

The Detroit-based company says it's streamlining the pizza pickup process by rolling out the mobile pick-up station across the country starting in 2018.

The Pizza Portal holds the RESERVE-N-READY pies with a heated, self-service kiosk so that you no longer have to interact with an employee to pick up your pizza. The company says it's a customer-focused service and it's a 'breakthrough' in getting customers their food, faster.

Here's how it works. Download the Little Caesars app and place your order - you'll pay through the app. The app tells you your pizza is done with a notification. You'll get a 3-digit pin or you can scan a QR code, the secured door for your pizza will unlock and you can pick up your pizza, and split.

"The genuine purpose behind integrating advanced technology into our stores is all about improving the customer experience, and building on our convenience and quality," said David Scrivano, President and CEO of Little Caesars. "We've spent a lot of time thinking about how to mesh mobile with our HOT-N-READY model to improve on the World's Easiest Way to Pizza. We changed the pizza game when we introduced HOT-N-READY. We think RESERVE-N-READY featuring our breakthrough Pizza Portal has the potential to do it again."

This doesn't change the way you order - you can get any pizza with your choice of toppings and the pizza is still prepared as usual.

The Pizza Portal was designed exclusively for Little Caesars.

The company did not say if the Pizza Portals will be available at Little Caesars Arena this winter.
