On Wednesday, Domino’s Pizza succeeded in transporting two pizzas to a customer in Whangaparaoa, New Zealand by drone thanks to a partnership with UAV delivery service Flirtey. Domino’s Group CEO Don Meij notes:
“We invested in this partnership, and technology, because we believe drone delivery will be an essential component of our pizza deliveries, so even more customers can receive the freshest, hottest pizza we can offer. I am proud of this partnership that has not only delivered this momentous event, but is leading the world for this important technology.”
The company is hoping to expand the service in the future, but it is currently only available to customers living within 1.5 kilometers of its Whangaparaoa store. Watch the drone delivery below.
