Domino's has been delivering pizzas to doorsteps for more than half a century. Now it will make stops in the great outdoors.
According to ABC News, on Monday, the pizza chain announced that its drivers can meet customers at U.S. beaches, parks, and landmarks to deliver pizza, cheesy bread and other food items on its menu.
In all, Domino's said it will deliver to 150,000 outdoor locations including under the Gateway Arch in St. Louis; by the Las Vegas welcome sign; or next to a statue of soul singer James Brown in Augusta, Georgia.
The locations show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
Domino's Pizza Inc. says it tested the service last fall in Miami, where customers ordered outside hotels and the zoo.
Dennis Maloney, the company's chief digital officer, wouldn't say how many deliveries were made during the test, but said it was enough to decide to roll it out nationwide.
Franchisees chose the hotspots, including local dog parks and airports. Drivers will pull up to the curb to meet customers, Domino's said, and people can tell the app what they're wearing so they're easier to spot.
