The leading pizza restaurant chain Dominos has announced that it would start delivering pizzas using custom electric bikes. Dominos has partnered with Rad Power Bikes, North America’s largest e-bike brand, to use their electric bikes for food delivery.
The customized e-bikes have small integrated motors to assist in pedaling and is capable of running 25-40 miles before needing a recharge. The e-bikes can carry up to 12 large pizzas. This new launch is a strategic move from Dominos to stay in par with the likes of DoorDash, GrubHub, and UberEats.
“Domino's tested e-bikes in a number of corporate-owned stores across Houston, Miami and New York earlier this year, and those stores saw improvements in overall delivery and service,” quoted Domino’s Executive Vice President of Corporate Operations Tom Curtis.
The announcement came followed by a successful pilot program to test e-bike deliveries in different market places in the US. Domino’s ran the pilot program in Texas, New York, Florida, among many others. The pilot program ticked in all areas, including faster delivery, improved customer satisfaction, and a decrease in fuel expenses.
Greg Keller, Seattle Domino’s franchise who had been using e-bikes services for three years, stated that the e-bikes were a game-changer for them and they witnessed positive results that can not be ignored.
The new service has also received applause from the delivery agents. Domino’s witnessed improvement in team satisfaction in areas that where it offered e-bike delivery service.
Founded in 2007, Rad Power Bikes host a long line of affordable electric vehicles and accessories. Sales Manager Brian Mcof Rincker stated that the delivery solution was tailored to Domino’s that stands at the forefront of using technology to increase efficiency and employee satisfaction.
Domino’s plans to deploy hundreds of e-bikes in the cities of Baltimore, Houston, Miami, and Salt Lake. The restaurant chain is also working keenly to increase its network across the nation. The new initiative will help Domino’s to cut some costs and cement its position as the leading pizza chain service.
