COCOA BEACH, Florida – Domino’s announced today that it will start making deliveries to places like local parks, sports fields and beaches by launching over 150,000 Domino’s Hotspots where customers can receive delivery orders at spots that don’t have a traditional address.
But don’t expect cabana service to your chair or blanket on the beach by a Domino’s delivery driver. That’s because commercial activity is prohibited on most Florida beaches without a special license from local governments, including Cocoa Beach, Florida.
However, drivers will meet customers in the parking area of beach accesses just over the beach crosswalk.
For example, a search for Domino’s hotspots near the beach at the end of Minuteman Causeway near Coconuts on the Beach – an area popular among Millennial day-trippers from Orlando, shows four Hotspots near the beach in less than a block radius.
“We listened to customers and their need for pizza delivery to locations without a traditional address,” said Russell Weiner, president of Domino’s USA. “We know that delivery is all about convenience, and Domino’s Hotspots are an innovation that is all about flexible delivery options for customers.”
Domino’s Hotspots are online-only for prepaid orders on dominos.com and in mobile apps.
Once a customer’s location has been determined, local Domino’s Hotspots that are available for delivery will appear on a map for customers to select.
Before checking out, customers can leave instructions to help the driver find them.
After completing their order, customers will receive text message alerts about their Domino’s Hotspot delivery progress, including a final text that gives the estimated arrival of the driver at the hand-off spot.
