Little Caesars Pizza is the one spot I go to whenever I want to put in the least amount of work to fulfill my pie cravings. The brand’s Hot-N-Ready menu makes it super convenient when I’m starving after work and just want to grab something quick before hopping back on the freeway home. The only minor inconvenience, during the afternoon rush, is that sometimes I’d have to wait in line — something the pizza chain now has an easy fix for.
In what they’re calling a first for the restaurant industry, Little Caesars just announced the national rollout of their Pizza Portal pickup. The Pizza Portal station is essentially a self-heated locker that lets customers roll through a location and pick up a mobile order without ever having to speak to anyone.
They’re pretty similar to Amazon lockers.
All you have to do is place your order through the mobile app, pick your store, and pay for it. Once you arrive, you can skip the counter and and enter either a 3-digit pin or scan a QR code directly into the station and the secured compartment will unlock, giving you access to your hot order.
If successful, the Pizza Portal pickup could skyrocket the convenience of Little Caesars pizza to a whole new level.
Piping food in hand, you’re pretty much in and out before traffic even begins to clear. That’s fine, though. Pizza tastes best when you’re in a parked car bumpin’ Josh Groban.
