Planning a picnic or day at the beach and don’t feel like lugging coolers and baskets full of food and drink? Well, Domino’s has you covered. The pizza giant recently announced they will be delivering pies directly to your picnic blanket, beach towel or wherever you decide to bask in the spring air.
Thrillist reports about Domino’s decision to offer this more off the grid delivery to areas they call “Hotspots” like public parks, sports fields and beaches. The restaurant says that they currently will deliver to more than 150,000 hotspots across the country and once they get there, you can then tell them exactly where you are to receive your piping hot pizza.
In order to place an order from a designated Domino’s hotspot, you have to download their app. After putting in your delivery order, you can specify exactly where you are so your delivery person can meet you and you will receive text updates as your pizza comes closer. Russell Weiner, president of Domino's USA, explains that the service is in direct response to what customers want. In a press release, Weiner says, “We listened to customers and their need for pizza delivery to locations without a traditional address. We know that delivery is all about convenience, and Domino's Hotspots are an innovation that is all about flexible delivery options for customers.”
No word from Domino’s on if this service will come with an extradelivery fee, but so far it looks like it will follow along with whatever normal fees apply at the Domino’s in your area.
What do you think of Domino’s new “Hotspot” delivery service?
Do you think you will have a pizza picnic some time soon?
I do not like Dominoes Pizza. As far as the Hotspot, I am not sure how this works and if it will last. It seems like you would have to allow for them to access your location and stay put for a while. I just am not digging this right now.
Wow. Now that's a pizza!! Does it come in a thin crust? Why waste calories on the crest?
I love this idea with two young kids. If they are playing happily at the beach or park this would be awesome. I wouldn't have to pack the kids up and get food.
That is amazing! Can you imagine how great it would be to be at the beach and have lunch brought to you. No more days of picking the driest person to lug back to the car to get lunch for everyone and then trekking back to find your towel among the sea of towels. This will be a life changer!
