Ann Arbor, MI – Domino’s Pizza will deliver to customers at spots in the United States that don’t have a traditional address such as parks, sports fields and beaches.

Domino’s has made more than 150,000 of these “Hotspots” active, the company said in a news release. Local Domino’s stores can select these Hotspots, which are now locations where drivers can meet customers at the curb to hand off orders.

“We listened to customers and their need for pizza delivery to locations without a traditional address,” said Russell Weiner, president of Domino’s USA. “We know that delivery is all about convenience, and Domino’s Hotspots are an innovation that is all about flexible delivery options for customers.”

Domino’s Hotspots are online-only for prepaid orders on dominos.com and in mobile apps. Once a customer’s location has been determined, local Domino’s Hotspots that are available for delivery will appear on a map for customers to select. Before checking out, customers can leave instructions to help the driver find them. After completing their order, customers will receive text message alerts about their Domino’s Hotspot delivery progress, including a final text that gives the estimated arrival of the driver at the hand-off spot.
