Vesture was happy to jump at the opportunity when Pizza Hut/Yum Brands asked for our help and deliver pizzas to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro and keep them above 142 °F for the duration of the 9 hour hike. With only 2 weeks to come up with a concept, design, manufacture, and test we were able to not only accomplish the task but exceed what Pizza Hut expected. With our efforts we were able to help Pizza Hut set a Guinness Book of World Records for the highest pizza delivery to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro to celebrate PH’s entry into its 100th country (Tanzania).

“We simply reached out to Vesture to tell them what we were trying to do and they went way above and beyond our wildest dreams in creating a back pack carrying system complete with a heating device that would work at the high elevation levels, they did extensive research and testing – and they never asked for a penny!”
