When a customer places an order, Piestro’s scheduling system will notify Serve’s fleet and the nearest available robot will pick up the pizza for transport from a Piestro pod. The partnership will roll out in the coming months, as Piestro deploys units within Serve delivery areas.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Serve Robotics to offer our customers the convenience and delight of robotic delivery,” said Massimo De Marco, CEO of Piestro. “Robotic delivery is contactless and reliable, with a higher on-time rate than couriers, and will allow our customers to get their pizzas even faster than before – all at the touch of their fingertips.”
Serve’s robots fit up to four Piestro pizzas and can complete deliveries in under 15 minutes. Once the robot arrives at its destination, customers can retrieve their pizzas from the machine with a secure passcode. Serve’s autonomous sidewalk robots navigate safely alongside pedestrians, with remote supervision when needed.
“Serve’s zero-emission robots are distinguished by their level of autonomy and safety, outperforming vehicle delivery in key metrics like on-time arrival and order completion,” said Ali Kashani, co-founder and CEO of Serve Robotics. “Combining the reliability of robotic delivery with Piestro’s tasty pizzas is a perfect match. Together, we offer customers a quick, contactless experience that also benefits the environment.”
Piestro continues to see traction with investors in its crowdfunding campaign, which is currently underway on WAX. The platform gives more everyday investors an opportunity to capitalize on the $46.3 billion U.S. pizza market and be a part of shaping the future of the industry by investing in intelligent automation – invest now.
