UPDATE: Pizza Hut expects mobile to account for 50 percent of future mobile orders, not current orders.

Buoyed by the success of its mobile iPhone application, Pizza Hut is about to get more ambitious with iPad and Android apps.

Brian Niccol, chief marketing officer at Pizza Hut, Dallas showcased new menu items that consumers can buy via their mobile device. In addition, the “Your Favorites. Your Pizza Hut” lunch unveiled the company’s new brand campaign.

“We want our pizza to become a favorite memory,” Mr. Niccol said. “When I came onboard five years ago, Pizza Hut didn’t even have a Web site where people could order pizza.

“[In the future, I see mobile] accounting for almost 50 percent of our orders,” he said.
