Pizza tastes like it dropped from heaven. We all love it and most of us order it at home because it is easier for us than go to a restaurant. What if I tell you that pizza will actually fall from the sky? Domino’s demonstrated they are able to deliver food by using a drone. They want to test real deliveries to customers in the near future.
- Domino’s wants to use a pizza-delivering drone in New Zeeland.
- This project could be expanded in the U.S., Japan or Germany too.
These are great news for those of you who love pizza. Scott Bush, the general manager of Domino’s Pizza said it was not worth it to deliver a pizza of two kilograms in a two-ton vehicle. Moreover, the traffic is so massive during the day that it would be much easier for them to send the pizza with the drone.
We think you want to find out how this will work. When a customer will want a drone delivery, he/she will receive a notification. That will tell you when the delivery is near you. You will go outside and hit a button on your app. The drone will lower the food and after the package will be released it will fly back to Domino’s store. There will be an extra charge for those who want drone delivery. However, they hope that there will be no added cost in the future.
The deliveries will start on September 26 in one Auckland store. There might be a problem because, according to a law, drones can fly only as far as the operator can see them. However, Domino’s promised to solve this problem with the authorities. The flights will be automated, but a human will stay close to see if there is any problem.
We can’t wait to find out where this drone will be available in U.S. Domino’s officials did not say when this will happen, but the drone delivery could be also expanded in countries like Australia, Japan or Germany.
If they will manage to deliver pizza by drone we should expect to see more companies using their idea in the future. Think of this: you go outside, have a walk and see how drones are delivering pizza. This is also good for our environment because there will be no air pollution.
