Now that’s Door-to-Door Service!

While Ford and Domino’s are experimenting with self-driving delivery cars, The Pizza Hut in Oak Lake, Texas came up with a completely novel way to get pies to their customers. The community was one of many that were recently devastated by the rain and 100 mph winds of Hurricane Harvey. Homes were destroyed, and streets were flooded with water as deep as chest-high in some cases. But like the trusty mailmen of days gone by, no mere weather event could stop Shaya Habib, the local Pizza Hut manager, from getting food out to stranded members of her community. Rather than [...]

The east side of Indianapolis is one of the most dangerous places in America, with some of the nation’s highest rates for gun and gang violence.

Pizza, Food of Kings!

Romans might object, but pizza is traditionally associated with Naples. From the earliest part of the 19th Century, this tasty and convenient comfort food was popular in Naples and throughout the surrounding area, though, because it consisted of mainly bread and vegetables, it was seen as a poor person’s food. All of that changed on December 11, 1889, when King Umberto and Queen Margherita made an official royal visit to the region and asked to sample the local delicacy that everyone was talking about. Pizza Chef Raffaele Esposito, who liked to experiment with unusual ingredients and is often credited with being [...]

The Future is Pizza!

Technological innovations are always met with a degree of suspicion. Changing people’s attitudes will be essential if self-driving cars are going to be accepted by the general public. That’s why Domino’s and The Ford Corporation have come up with the novel idea of having pizzas delivered by driverless vehicles. In a pilot project soon to be expanded to several test cities, automated cars have been pulling up in front of houses, dialing the occupants’ number and telling them to come outside to pick up their pizza order. The campaign is part of an overall strategy to associate the cars, which [...]
