Pizza Hut expects to hire 3,000 new drivers through the end of the year

Pizza Hut, a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, announced that the company, along with its franchisees, expects to hire nearly 3,000 new drivers a month through the end of the year. The hiring effort will bring in approximately 14,000 new drivers across the system. The new delivery driver hires will include full and part-time positions and are based on the needs of the individual restaurant and market. In addition to increasing its driver fleet, Pizza Hut has developed a "delivery network algorithm" that will change its pizza delivery business.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades

AIG (AIG) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Kai Pan citing the "strong" new Chief Executive Officer and attractive valuation. 2. Yum! Brands (YUM) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak citing the company's decision to refranchise an additional 5% of its stores and institute additional cost cutting measures as reasons for the upgrade. 3.
