History

In the United States, modern pizza delivery began after World War II, when many pizzerias were opened by former soldiers who had encountered the dish while serving in Italy.[citation needed] In northern European countries, like Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands, many pizzerias were opened in the 1950s and 1960s by Italian immigrants.[citation needed] Today, in many European countries, take-out döner kebab or shawarma restaurants sell pizzas as well.[citation needed] Combatants Allied powers: China France Great Britain Soviet Union United States and others Axis powers: Germany Italy Japan and others Commanders Chiang Kai-shek Charles de Gaulle Winston Churchill Joseph Stalin Franklin Roosevelt Adolf Hitler Benito Mussolini Hideki Tōjō Casualties Military dead: 17,000,000 Civilian dead: 33,000...

Many pizza restaurants in the U.S. offer call-in pizza delivery services, because pizzas can be made quickly and are easily transported.[citation needed] Domino's Pizza, founded in Ypsilanti, Michigan in 1960, is credited with popularizing free pizza delivery in the United States.[2] For other uses, see United States (disambiguation) and US (disambiguation). ...

Time guarantees

Some pizzerias promise delivery within a certain set period of time, perhaps specifying that late deliveries will be free of charge.[citation needed] For example, Domino's Pizza had a commercial campaign in the 1980s and early 1990s promising, "30 minutes or it's free." This practice was discontinued in 1993 due to a number of lawsuits arising from accidents caused by hurried delivery drivers.[4] As a result, many pizzerias will state to the customer an approximate time frame for a delivery, without making any guarantees as to the actual delivery time.[citation needed]

A typical heated pizza bag, with a plug at the bottom.

Bags used to keep pizza hot while being transported are commonly referred to as hotbags[5] or hot bags.[6] Thermal bags, typically made of vinyl, nylon, or Cordura, passively retain heat.[5] Material choice affects cost, durability, and condensation.[5] Heated bags supply added heat through insertion of externally-heated disks, electrical heating elements, or pellets heated by induction from electrically generated magnetic waves.[5] Image File history File links Download high resolution version (992x788, 145 KB) Summary I took this picture. ...

Pizza boxes

Typical contemporary pizza boxes. As can be seen, they are stackable in large quantities.

A pizza box is a square cardboard box in which a pizza is packaged for take-out or pizza delivery. Pizza boxes are often emblazoned with the logo of the pizza company from which they come. However, some smaller restaurants will use boxes with a generic image. Pizza boxes are not accepted by most municipal recycling programs because food is often stuck to the box itself. Boxes are thus commonly thrown away with household garbage; a more environmentally friendly disposal option that has been proposed is a form of backyard composting for pizza boxes.[citation needed] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 450 × 600 pixelsFull resolution (576 × 768 pixel, file size: 112 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) I took this photo myself and release it in to the public domain. ...

Tipping

In some countries, it's common to tip the pizza deliverer with an optional gratuity upon paying for the order. For other uses, see Tip (disambiguation). ...


In the United States, tipping for pizza delivery is customary. Opinions on appropriate amounts vary widely, with news articles typically suggesting around 15% of the bill or at least $2.[7][8][9] Slightly more is suggested for deliveries in inclement weather or relatively distant deliveries.[10] The Original Tipping Page website, tippingpage.org, cited by a few dozen news sources, suggests $1-2 for short distances, $2-3 for longer distances, and $5 or more for large orders.[11][12][13] U.S. deliverers may be employees or independent contractors.[14] Employees are legally obligated to report tips to their employer for income tax purposes, while independent contractors, who may charge a per-delivery fee to a restaurant, are legally obligated to report tips to the Internal Revenue Service.[15] An independent contractor is a person or business which provides goods or services to another entity under terms specified in a contract. ... Seal of the Internal Revenue Service Tax rates around the world Tax revenue as % of GDP Part of the Taxation series        “IRS” redirects here. ...


In Australia, tipping for pizza delivery is rare and not customary, and hourly wages for deliverers are considered relatively high.[16] Prices for delivery orders are typically higher than for carryout orders, and "free delivery" cannot be advertised if carryout pricing is lower.[16]


Delivery charges

For decades, "free delivery" was a popular slogan for almost all pizza stores.[citation needed]


In the United States, Pizza Hut began experimenting in 1999 with a 50-cent delivery charge in ten stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.[17] By the summer of 2001 it was implemented in 95% of its 1,749 company-owned restaurants in the U.S., and in a smaller number of its 5,250 franchisee-owned restaurants.[18] By 2002, a small percentage of stores owned or franchised by U.S. pizza companies Domino's and Papa John's were also charging delivery fees of 50 cents to $1.50, and some of Little Caesar's franchisees charged delivery fees.[18] In 2005, Papa John's implemented delivery charges in the majority of its company-owned stores to enhance pricing flexibility.[19] Domino's credits delivery charges as a way to adjust for variable ingredient, energy, and labor costs without adjusting menu prices.It should be noted that the delivery charge does not include the driver's tip. The Driver receives very little if any of the delivery charge. [20]


Hazards

Pizza delivery, by its nature, can pose risks for those engaged in it, because they are required to go to the homes of strangers in unfamiliar neighborhoods. In the U.S., pizza delivery persons are frequently assaulted, robbed, and sometimes raped or killed on the job.[1][21] The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, which categorizes pizza delivery drivers and taxicab drivers as "drivers-sales workers," ranked it the fifth most dangerous job category.[22] The Bureau of Labor Statistics was founded in 1884 by President Chester A. Arthur. ... For specific countries see Taxicabs around the world. ...


In 2004, Pizza Hut fired a delivery person who shot and killed a robber while on the job, citing its company policy against employees carrying weapons.[23] Other national chains such as Domino's also prohibit carrying weapons, though many independent pizzarias allow delivery persons to carry weapons in a legal manner.[1][24] Employer restrictions on carrying weapons is a controversial issue in the U.S., where most states in the U.S. allow most citizens to carry concealed weapons in many circumstances.[25]


Labor unions

In recent history, two labor unions have been formed specifically for pizza delivery drivers - the now-defunct Association of Pizza Delivery Drivers[26] (APDD) and the American Union of Pizza Delivery Drivers[27] (AUPDD). The Association of Pizza Delivery Drivers (APDD) was a U.S. labor union representing pizza and other ready-to-eat food drivers. ...


Association of Pizza Delivery Drivers

APDD was formed in 2002. Its initial claim to fame was as an Internet-based union, eschewing traditional methods of organizing, and making contributions and the sale of goods the center of its fundraising activities, instead of dues.[citation needed] People could join APDD using a form at their website, or chat with its officers in an IRC-compatible Java chat every Tuesday evening. At its peak, it claimed approximately 1,000 members in 46 US states.[citation needed] APDD held several certification votes in the US, but was never successful in organizing a local. In March 2006 APDD lost a lawsuit against a Domino's franchise in Mansfield, Ohio. This combined with massive debt left the union with little choice but to shut down.[citation needed] Also see: 2002 (number). ...

American Union of Pizza Delivery Drivers

AUPDD was founded in early 2006 by Jim Pohle, a driver for a Domino's Pizza store in Pensacola, Florida.[27] It was certified as the representative union for his store in April 2006.[28] Pohle cites the sub-minimum wage paid by his store as the instigating factor in forming a union.[27] Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

While formed in the more traditional method of organizing at one's own workplace, AUPDD uses certain Internet-based techniques originated by APDD, such as its mass communications with the press and its fundraising activities (although more traditional dues are collected from the eleven members of the fledgling local).[citation needed] It also uses the Internet as its primary outreach to those wishing to start locals across the US.[citation needed]
