Pizza Retailer of the Year[i] Aldi has announced it’s about to start its first ever pizza delivery service across three cities on Tuesday 3rd October. Serving up its brand-new Ultimate Takeaway range, customers can pre-order pizzas for just £3.99 each, no delivery cost incurred.
With a medium Meateor pizza from Domino’s currently setting shoppers back £20.99, plus a £2.50 delivery fee, the service can save pizza lovers more than £19 per pizza delivered – that’s a whopping 83%[ii].
Launching across key student locations across the UK, Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff, to coincide with Fresher’s Week, pizza fans within selected postcodes will be able to pre-book their delivery timeslot via the dedicated website – aldipizzadelivery.co.uk – from today (Monday 18th September).
Within the brand-new Ultimate Takeaway range are three Domino’s inspired flavours: The Meaty One (524g) (inspired by Meateor), a sizzling sausage and meatball feast, The Banger (462g) (inspired by Absolute Banger), a smoky hotdog delight with a spicy kick, and The Texas Style BBQ Chicken & Bacon (502g) (inspired by Texas BBQ), boasting tangy BBQ sauce, succulent chicken and smoky bacon (each £3.99, 8 slices).
The delivery service will allow customers to select up to two of these delicious new flavours to be delivered hot to their door. The range, which is Aldi’s most Domino’s-like pizza offering yet, is launching in stores nationwide from 9th October, meaning those who don’t manage to bag a delivery slot can also get a pizza the action.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “With prices of takeaways soaring, we’re excited to be able to offer shoppers delicious pizzas at a fraction of the price of expensive high-street chains.
“The quality ingredients and affordable price of the Ultimate Takeaway range will no doubt change people’s idea of the supermarket pizza.
“Better yet, we’re thrilled to be able to deliver this product hot to shoppers’ doors and truly treat our customers to the full takeaway experience.”
