Drone pizzas!!! The first pizza has been delivered via drone in New Zealand.   Domino’s Pizza delivered Peri-Peri Chicken and Chicken and Cranberry pizzas (wut?) to Emma and Johnny Norman in Whangaparaoa, about 20 miles north of Auckland.  The flight time was less than 5 minutes and the landing was perfection. In a press release, Domino’s Group CEO and Managing Director, Don Meij, said the successful delivery came just three months after Domino’s announced a partnership with Flirtey drone delivery service.  “We invested in this partnership, and technology, because we believe drone delivery will be an essential component of our pizza deliveries,” Mr Meij said.  “They can avoid traffic congestion and traffic lights, and safely reduce the delivery time and distance by travelling directly to customers’ homes. This is the future. ”  As far as taking away jobs, Meij says don’t worry. “This will actually create jobs. As we expand, we will look to hire additional team members whose roles will be focused on drone order loading and fleet management.”  This sounds like a HUGE win! YUGE!
