An Italian restaurant in Mumbai, India has taken pizza delivery to the next level, sending its tastey pizzas to their respective destinations using a flying drone known as a ‘quadcopter’.
A video recently posted on YouTube by the restaurant shows the pizza being made and boxed in the restaurant before being fixed to a tiny model aircraft with four mini-propellors which then flies out through the doors, up above Mumbai youths playing cricket, along the city’s Arabian Sea front, through skyscrapers to the top of a tower block where its customer is waiting on the roof!
According to Francesco’s chief executive, Mikhel Rajani, the restaurant was inspired by Amazon’s plans to use drones to deliver books (you can find our report on those drones here).
Francesco’s Pizzeria chief executive said the drone had cut delivery time to 10 minutes from 30 and he expects air-borne deliveries to be normal within four years.
“The delivery system now involves motorcycles, fuel costs, and salary for the delivery boys who often miss deadlines to deliver. Delivery using drones will not only be economic but also eco-friendly”, he said.
