Hungry? This customized Domino’s delivery car keeps up to 80 pizzas piping hot

Have you ever been so hungry that you ate an entire pizza by yourself? How about two? How about 80? If you’ve yet to elevate yourself to those gastrointestinal heights, you’re in luck thanks to Domino’s and Chevrolet.

The Michigan-based pizza company has officially unveiled the Domino’s Innovative DXP, a uniquely-crafted delivery vehicle with the ability to ferry up to 80 pies at a time. Based on the Chevy Spark, the car features a bespoke interior designed for maximum nutriment storage, making it the first pizza-carrier of its type.

“The Domino’s DXP is the first purpose-built vehicle aimed at revolutionizing pizza delivery,”said Russell Weiner, President of Domino’s USA. “This innovation allows drivers to do their jobs with greater ease and efficiency, and demonstrates that Domino’s is absolutely fanatical about making perfect deliveries.”


There are many elements that make up the ideal delivery vehicle, and the DXP is chock-full of them. It features an illuminated warming oven that’s accessible via the key fob, and the entire cabin is coated with a non-slip, easy-to-clean material.  There are also special compartments for salads, wings, sauces, and 2-liter bottles of soda inside. As far as the exterior goes, the Spark is decked out in Domino’s livery, including a puddle light that projects the brand’s logo on the ground. The vehicle is also fuel efficient with a 39-mpg highway rating, meaning it can spend less time at the pump and more time delivering crispy, bubbly, and cheesy goodness straight to your door.

Domino’s is currently working with Roush Enterprises to convert and deliver around 100 DXPs to 25 markets across the United States, including Boston, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, New Orleans, San Diego, and Seattle. The vehicles will cost franchises somewhere between $20,000 and $25,000 each. The standard Spark starts at $12,170.

GrubHub and Yelp team up to offer delivery from more than 80,000 restaurants
how to safely order food delivery grubhub

Soon, the list of restaurants that are not available on GrubHub will be shorter than the list of restaurants that are. As per a new report from The Wall Street Journal, GrubHub and Yelp have expanded their partnership, which will result in twice as many restaurants being made available on the Yelp website that offer delivery from GrubHub. As a result of this expanded collaboration, there will be more than 80,000 restaurants to choose from on the online review portal.

The partnership comes at a key time for GrubHub, which is competing against an increasingly competitive pool of players. Folks like DoorDash, UberEats, and a whole bevy of local startups are all vying for our appetites (and our wallets). While GrubHub took out some of the competition by merging with Seamless back in 2013, there are still plenty of other players in the game looking to establish dominance.

Want the pizza without the personal touch? Domino's may have a solution
Domino's Ford

Soon, you may not have to tip your pizza delivery driver anymore but not because the fast food industry is going tipless -- rather, because it’s going driverless. That is right, your pies could soon be coming your way in autonomous delivery vehicles. That is, if you are ordering from Domino's. According to The Verge, the pizza franchise partnered with Ford to test self-driving pizza delivery cars, hoping to gauge how well (or poorly) pizza enthusiasts respond to and engage with this newfangled technology.

Over the course of the next few weeks, some Domino’s customers in Ann Arbor, Michigan, will have the option of getting their pizzas delivered in a Ford Fusion Hybrid autonomous research vehicle. Alas, the car won’t be entirely without a driver (so you should probably still tip). All cars will be operated by a Ford safety engineer, and will actually have quite a few other passengers in the form of additional researchers who will be tasked with examining the last 50 feet of the drive and the customer experience.

Hungry for a gooey, cheesy Domino’s pizza? Just ask Alexa

You know those nights -- maybe you had a little too much to drink, maybe you just saw a commercial full of cheesy, saucy goodness -- and you whine into the ether, “I want pizza.” If you have an Amazon Echo and merely whisper that to its voice-controlled assistant Alexa, you could have a pie on the way to your house practically faster than you can say, “regrets.” Domino’s and Amazon first joined forces last year to deliver you pizza via voice command in the U.S., and now, that functionality is crossing the pond. That is right, Brits -- you can now order your Domino's with your voice, too.

First, you need to set up a “Pizza Profile,” which you already have if you’ve texted or tweeted Domino’s an order. It saves your address, credit card information, and your “Easy Order.” This is your favorite pizza, or the one that’s mutually agreed upon as the least offensive to all the members of your family. You need to order this pizza, then save it as your Easy Order.
