Pizza Hut partners with Serve Robotics on 2-week robotic delivery pilot program in Vancouver
By Canadian PizzaNews Business and Operations Delivery
Pizza Hut Canada is launching its new robot delivery service. The national chain is partnering with Serve Robotics to host a two-week pilot program in Vancouver, B.C.
From now until Sept. 26-30, select Vancouver customers who place an order via the Pizza Hut app may have their favourite menu items delivered directly to their doorstep via robot.
“From introducing cheese in our stuffed crust to delivering pizza to the International Space Station, Pizza Hut is the pizza pioneer,” shared Manish Dhankher, Director of Operations at Pizza Hut Canada. “We’re always looking for ways to enhance our customer service and deliver hot, fresh, and delicious menu favourites to our customers. Pizza Hut is thrilled to be at the forefront of this technology and partner with Serve Robotics to bring this offering to Canada for the first time.”
Pizza Hut on 1725 Robson Street in Vancouver was selected as the first location for the pilot. Customers selected for robotic delivery will be able to use the Pizza Hut app to track the robot’s location as their order approaches and will receive a unique, one-time pin to retrieve their order from the robot’s secure compartment.
“Serve is excited to partner with Pizza Hut to provide Vancouver customers with the convenience and reliability of zero-emissions robotic delivery,” said Dr. Ali Kashani, co-founder and CEO of Serve Robotics. “This is an important step forward in our efforts to expand our delivery platform to serve more cities and communities.”
