Pizza Hut Delivery is expected to add 100 new units across the United Kingdom by the end of 2014. According to the Telegraph, this expansion fits the growing trend of British consumers ordering in versus eating out as the recession lingers.

Parent company Yum! Brands will invest £4.5M (about $7.24M) toward the plan. Currently, there are nearly 300 outlets across the country. Eventually, Yum! would like to grow that number to 700.

Mark Fox, a Yum! managing director, told the Telegraph: "We are committed to delivering a major investment in growing our UK system, creating significant new opportunities for existing and would-be franchisees. Our investment will increase our marketing spend, drive the outlet numbers, and visibility of Pizza Hut Delivery and create opportunities for franchisees to grow their businesses quickly."
