Zeta Rho chapter of Beta Sigma Phi met in the home of Alice Liles on Tuesday, January 8th for their first meeting of the new year.
Pizza Hut General Manager Abel Cisneros shared information about the new Pizza Hut being built on American Boulevard. He said they plan to be open by April 10th. They are working on making the dining experience more focused on the customer with speedy service and accurate orders. The salad bar will be replaced with new and fresher salad
combinations and new dressings. The pizza buffet will be gone, but in its place a 9-inch express lunch pizza will be available. Abel said many times people coming to the buffet would not find their favorite pizza as one of the buffet choices, so this way customers can still have the speed of the buffet but can order a selection more to their liking. Besides the pizzas and new salads, the menu will still include pastas, wings, cinnabuns, apple pie, and the Hershey’s chocolate chip cookie box. A variety of beers will now be available to enjoy with the meal. I asked if taco pizza, one of my family’s favorites found only in the Muleshoe Pizza Hut and a few others in this area, is still on the menu, and he said yes. For those of you already sad about the demise of the salad and pizza buffet, Abel said after the new restaurant is open, they are planning a going away party for the buffets as a way of introducing the new concepts that will be taking their place. Watch for upcoming ads for time and day of the event.
After the program, members enjoyed finger sandwiches, a fruit, vegetable, cheese and dip tray, sopapilla cheesecake, and spiced hot tea provided by co-hostess Rickie Warren.
