Food delivery services have always been pretty popular, and this is made even more so these days thanks to technology where there are apps that let us order food. However the more food deliveries we request, the more transportation is involved, in which turn is probably not too good for the environment.

This is why Pizza Hut and Toyota have teamed up to unveil a concept truck that runs on hydrogen dubbed the Tundra PIE Pro. The concept of a green pizza delivery truck sounds pretty interesting already, but to make it more interesting, the Tundra PIE Pro will actually come with a robot kitchen at its back, where robotic arms will help assemble pizzas while on the go.

It has been estimated that this could take as little as 6-7 minutes, meaning that in theory your pizzas should arrive at your doorstep when they’re right out of the oven which is pretty much as fresh as it gets. According to Marianne Radley, Chief Brand Officer, Pizza Hut, “Nothing tastes better than a fresh Pizza Hut pizza straight out of the oven. The Tundra PIE Pro brings to life our passion for innovation not just on our menu but in digital and delivery in order to provide the best possible customer experience.”

That being said, the Tundra PIE Pro is merely a concept as we imagine that putting together a fleet of these trucks could prove to be rather costly. Pizza Hut is also not alone in trying to make themselves greener. Courier services such as UPS are also exploring the use of electric trucks to help make their operations more environmentally-friendly.
