Presidential Prize: Town Hall Attendees Could Win Free Pizza for Life

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- With rising fuel prices driving up the cost of food -- and likely people to the polls this November -- Pizza Hut has announced a new contest that somehow encompasses both the economy and politics.

The company says any person attending the Oct. 16 televised town hall debate between President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney who asks either candidate "pepperoni or sausage?" will score free pizza for life.

In a press release, Pizza Hut, which is backing its own electoral entity, The Pizza Party, says the question must be asked, "To assure America that the real issues being debated in households across the country every night aren't sidestepped by the candidates any longer."

Pizza Hut Tries to Bite into Subway’s Sales

Image credit: Pizza Hut(NEW YORK) -- It’s a battle of sandwich versus sandwich.  Pizza Hut is taking on Subway in its marketing campaign promoting the launch of the new P’zolo sandwich.

With advertising that says “See ya subs” on Chicago subway trains covered in P’zolo advertising, the Pizza Hut chain isn’t being discreet.  The New York Times reported other lines that said, “Say so long to the footlong” and “More bang for your 5 bucks.”

The P’zolo sandwich comes in Meat Trio, Buffalo Chicken or Italian Steak options with ranch or marinara dipping sauce.  Its pricing rivals the Subway sandwich: $3 per sandwich or 2 for $5.  Subway is known for its $5 footlong sandwich.

This isn’t Pizza Hut’s first foray in the sandwich market.  It sold the P’zone, a pizza-flavored calzone, as its first attempt to lure sandwich shoppers.

How many calories will a P’zolo cost you? Pizza Hut has yet to post the nutritional content of the sandwich.  Subways range from 300 to 500 calories for their footlongs.

Fast Food Chains Offer Bargains for Weary Spenders

Thinkstock Images/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The holiday season is over and with it goes unfettered spending by consumers.

Fast Food chains tend to be affected more than other businesses in the month of January says a report by USA Today. People who have spent their money on gifts and holiday travel, now look to curtail that spending in January by avoiding eating at fast-food restaurants and opting instead to eat at home.

As a result of a drop in customer visits, several restaurants are offering deals on their meals. Taco Bell and Wendy's are offering under a dollar deals including the 99-cent Beefy Crunch Burrito and a 99-cent Value Menu respectively. Pizza Hut, Burger King and KFC are also offering bargains.
