If you are living in Europe, or to be more specific Germany or the Netherlands, don’t be surprised if your pizza orders from Domino’s are delivered by robots. This is because the company has recently announced that they will begin using robots to make pizza deliveries in those two countries.

The robots will be provided by Starship Technologies, which we have covered before as robots that could be used for all kinds of deliveries, such as groceries and now we guess pizzas too. According to Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Chief Executive Officer Don Meij, “With our growth plans over the next five to 10 years, we simply won’t have enough delivery drivers if we do not look to add to our fleet through initiatives such as this.”

This wouldn’t be the first time that Domino’s has turned to robots to make deliveries, or tested out the idea. For example in 2016 the company began testing out pizza deliveries using drones in New Zealand, so this initiative isn’t exactly new. As to whether or not they plan to expand their robot delivery services to other countries remains to be seen, although if they do decide to come stateside, the state of Virginia is the first state in which robot deliveries have recently been made legal.
