The Pizza Hut iPhone app has been downloaded over 100,000 times. What does this mean for them? How will it affect their sales? How do I get an app for my restaurant? These are the questions that come to mind.



Well first things first. It's a great looking app. The design team that put it together did an excellent job. It's sexy, fun, and functional.



So what does a great looking app get you? Well, it gets you 100,000 downloads.… Continue
