Domino’s Pizza isn’t just the largest pizza company in the world. The company says it now has the largest electric pizza delivery fleet in the country, with more EVs to come.
Domino’s announced on June 28 that more than 1,100 custom-branded 2023 Chevy Bolt electric vehicles will be on the ground and in use at select franchise and corporate stores by the end of the year.
“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,” said Joe Jordan, Domino’s president of U.S. and global services. “All 800 vehicles are on the road, delivering at various stores across the country.”
Jordan said that number is growing, too. “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.”
Electric vehicles provide several advantages for Domino’s stores, including ample battery life with the potential for days of deliveries; zero tailpipe emissions; advanced safety features; and lower average maintenance costs than nonelectric vehicles.
The chain is partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management, which offers local hands-on account management, vehicle acquisition, financing, telematics solutions and maintenance for the electric delivery fleet.
“We’re continuing to see a wide range of advantages from using EVs,” Jordan added. “In addition to business and environmental benefits, 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.”
