Sweet Delivery: WM Yogurt Shop Introduces World’s First Drone Delivery Service [VIDEO]
It's still in the early stage, but a pilot program introduced yesterday (10/4) in Holland could pave the way for drone delivery to become mainstream.
Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt made its first drone delivery to students at Hope College. The inaugural flight took about 15 minutes to travel about one mile, and delivery is currently restricted to the Pine Grove area of Hope College. Delivery costs are yet to be determined.
Orange Leaf is proud to be on the cutting edge.
“We think long term that’s where the industry is heading in terms of engaging with millennial clientele who loves new technology but also ways to add convenience by using technology so why not be on the four end of that,” Geoff Goodman, president of Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt tells WOOD-TV.
If the pilot program succeeds, the shop intends to expand its delivery area.
