Pizza-lovers not at home can now have their Domino's pizza delivered to the park, beach, landmark or another non-traditional place.
Domino's, which is based in Ann Arbor, recently announced it would offer over 150,000 Domino's Hotspots - these are locations that have no traditional address such as an apartment, house or office building.
Some of the places drivers will meet customers include beaches, sports fields and local parks.
Domino's USA President Russell Weiner said customers' concerns about delivery to non-traditional locations was heard. He said delivery should equate to convenience and, with Domino's Hotspots, this is a flexible delivery option for the chain's customers.
The Hotspots option is only available for pre-paid orders via its mobile app or Dominos.com. Once the location has been assessed, any nearby Domino's Hotspots will show up on the map for customers to choose.
Before checkout, customers are advised to leave instructions to drivers on how to find them. After the order has been completed, customers will get alerts via text message about the progress of their pizza, including one that estimates when the driver will arrive with their food.
Domino's Pizza began in 1960 and has become the largest pizza company according to its retail sales. There are nearly 15,000 Domino's Pizza stores in over 85 markets around the world.
