In an exhilarating display of innovation, Domino’s has embarked on a groundbreaking trial of pizza delivery via jet suit at the renowned Glastonbury Festival. With approximately 200,000 festival-goers to cater to, the pizza giant teamed up with Gravity Industries, the pioneers of jet suit technology, to offer a one-of-a-kind experience to satisfy the cravings of hungry revellers.
Spectators in Somerset were left astounded as the Domino’s delivery driver transformed into a pilot, taking off from a nearby Glastonbury store and soaring over picturesque fields, carrying pizzas and sides in a specially designed jet suit delivery box. Witnessing this spectacle, Natalie Dixon, a party-goer en route to the festival, expressed her excitement, saying, “Seeing a jet suit thing fly over Glasto was wild. I’ve never seen a jet suit, let alone one delivering pizzas. I can’t wait to see one land on my doorstep in the future.”
The groundbreaking trial, launched by Domino’s from their Glastonbury store, aimed to coincide with the opening of the town for this year’s music extravaganza, where the festival’s headline act, the original rocket man, is set to perform on Sunday. Sam Wilson, Domino’s Jet Suit Deployment Director, explained the inspiration behind the venture: “When we realized that serving slices inside the festival was impossible, we took inspiration from this year’s headliner to launch our own rapid delivery trial – it was a bit of a no-brainer. Every year, we see huge numbers of random requests from festival-goers trying to sneak pizza into the party, so this year we wanted to take a giant step forward and trial our very own rocket man service to help hungry campers get a slice of sky-high satisfaction in the future.”
While the Domino’s spokesperson remained tight-lipped about the possibility of a nation-wide rocket-powered fleet, they hinted that the idea had great potential. “All we can say at this stage is that the idea has legs… or wings… or jets,” they added with a playful tone.
Footage of the momentous “Domino’s Jet Suit Delivered Pizza” first surfaced on Tuesday, revealing the pilot hovering around the Glastonbury store donning the iconic Domino’s delivery suit, helmet, and a custom-designed jetpack. After carefully placing two pizzas into a custom delivery box mounted on top of the jet suit, the delivery pilot secured his hands into the jet-engine powered arm mounts and propelled himself into the sky. Soaring above the fields of Glastonbury, he deftly handed over pizzas to hungry campers before making a triumphant return to the store.
In an exclusive partnership with Gravity Industries, Domino’s became the first pizza company in the world to employ jet suits for pizza delivery. Each suit, valued at hundreds of thousands of pounds, was customized to Domino’s specifications to ensure the pizzas were delivered with the signature piping hot freshness.
A spokesperson from Gravity Industries expressed their enthusiasm for this unconventional utilization of their technology, stating, “Keeping pizza piping hot using the Jet Suit is definitely an unusual utilisation of our tech, and pizza isn’t in our normal flight plan. But being able to exceed the average delivery time by flying through the Somerset fields and feeding campers with the pizza delivery experts certainly shows the future of a fast delivery service.”
The Domino’s jet suit pizza delivery trial has captured the imagination of festival-goers and sparked discussions about the potential of combining technology and convenience in the food delivery industry. As the event unfolds, eager attendees eagerly anticipate the possibility of experiencing this extraordinary mode of pizza delivery in their own neighborhoods in the future.
