Success is contagious at Domino’s as it seems every time Domino’s Pizza has a success step it is followed-up with another according to Steven Johnson, Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions®. Fresher, faster, food delivery has a ‘halo’ of better for you around it that’s in larger part too back-in the Domino’s focus was 30 delivery.
Now to enable fresher faster, urban delivery with a sustainable halo of better for you Domino’s New Zealand General Manager Cameron Toomey New Zealand based electric vehicle manufacturer UBCO about supply possibilities.
Ok, so just think, with food delivery orders on the rise, Domino’s Pizza is embracing electric transport. And Kiwi business UBCO is providing new electric motorbikes for the growing Domino’s fleet. Two Kiwi businesses innovating for the good of the planet (and pizzas). How is that not a win, win?
Cameron Toomey stated “The UBCO bikes have several advantages over cars when it comes to deliveries. They are faster through heavy traffic, parking isn’t an issue, they’re cheaper to run and more environmentally friendly. Our delivery teams safely deliver thousands of pizzas each week and we see the UBCO bikes as an important part of our fleet going forward.”
For the rest of you, think about this quote for a recent article: “The UBCO 2X2 is not your standard electric bike. UBCO has, in effect, created a new category of vehicle called a ‘Utility Bike’. Originally developed for off-road use the utility bike has drawn an increasing following for on-road use in a variety of sectors such as commuting, prepared food and grocery delivery, postal and freight.” Prepared food? Yes, Grocerant niche Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh food delivered from an electric bike, it cost less than a car and is seen as better for you according to Johnson.
