The largest convenience retail chain in the world – 7- Eleven, was the first shop to use a drone service called Flirtey to make the first delivery of snacks and hot food items to a customer’s home.
The delivery of snacks, pastries and coffee to a customer’s home one mile down the road from their local 7-Eleven store in Reno, Nevada, marks the first time a retailer has worked with a drone delivery company to transport from the store to the home.
The drone delivery company builds its own vehicles and also develops and runs their own software to make deliveries for the retail and food industries.
7-Eleven and Flirtey plan to continue working together and deliver to their customers exactly what they need, whenever and wherever they need it.
The newspaper, a breakfast roll and some fresh orange juice delivered to the door on a Sunday morning is something we could definitely see a market for here!
