PITTSBURGH,None - It seems the economy has taken a bite out of the fast food industry’s sales, leading some of the biggest names in the business to lower prices in order to lure customers back.
Fast food industry executives say they aren't lowing prices because they want to, but sales have slumped so they feel like they have to.
With the exception of McDonald's, the fast food industry is struggling. July sales were the worst they've been in almost two years, so the industry is lowering prices to get customers back in the door and they are offering some of the best deals we've seen in years.
At Pizza Hut, you can get any pizza, any size, with any toppings for $10 and that even includes delivery.
Domino's is going even lower with an Artisan pizza for $7.99. That is an incredible deal on a large pizza with three toppings and it includes delivery.
In October, Subway is bringing back foot-long subs for five bucks. They have also got a $7 meal deal with chips and a soda.
Dairy Queen is offering a chicken strip basket with fries for $3.99, and they've got $5 meal deals.
Taco Bell just introduced a 99-cent chicken flatbread sandwich. For $5 you can get the sandwich, a burrito, a taco and a fountain drink.
Finally, at Burger King you can get a free soft-serve cone with a value meal.
Wendy's just revamped its burgers hoping that will boost slumping sales. Industry executives say in this economy deals are more important than ever.
