Domino’s Pizza has announced it plans to expand its electric pizza delivery fleet. The company, known as the largest pizza chain globally, will be adding over 1,100 custom-branded 2023 Chevy Bolt electric vehicles to its fleet, with more than 800 already on the road.
The advantages of electric vehicles are apparent for Domino’s. The expanded fleet allows for extended battery life, enabling days of deliveries without recharging. Additionally, electric vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions, contributing to cleaner air and a healthier environment. The advanced safety features of the EVs ensure a secure delivery process for drivers and customers alike. Moreover, these vehicles require lower average maintenance costs compared to their non-electric counterparts.
“Back in November 2022, Domino’s announced that we’d have 800 EVs on the road by the end of 2023, and we’re excited to say that we’ve officially reached that number. Our stores and franchisees have continued to express their enthusiasm and interest around EVs, and they’ve ordered an additional 300-plus cars to be on the road by the end of the year,” said Joe Jordan, Domino’s president of U.S. and global services.
The use of electric vehicles not only benefits Domino’s operations but also opens up new employment opportunities. Jordan highlighted this point, saying, “An electric delivery fleet also helps with hiring drivers, as they open up a whole new pool of job candidates who may not have their own vehicles.”
Domino’s partnered with Enterprise Fleet Management to support the management of its electric delivery fleet. The collaboration provides services, including local account management, vehicle acquisition, financing, telematics solutions, and maintenance.
