Domino’s brings EV pizza delivery to Rochester
Domino’s on Mt. Hope Avenue in Rochester has become the first New York store within the pizza franchise network to use electric vehicles for food delivery.
Four custom-branded 2023 Chevrolet Bolt all-electric cars are now in operation as delivery vehicles from the store at 1595 Mt. Hope. The EVs are part of a nation-wide campaign that will commission 800 Bolts before the end of 2023.
“Domino’s is no stranger to leading the charge when it comes to pizza delivery,” Allan Erwin, Rochester Domino’s franchise owner, said in a news release. “The brand has a longstanding history with revolutionizing the pizza delivery space. We’re beyond thrilled to offer electric delivery to customers and reduce our environmental impact, one delivery at a time.”
Domino’s says EVs provide ample battery life, zero tailpipe emissions, advanced safety features and lower average maintenance costs than nonelectric vehicles.
In creating their own fleet, stores also provide employment opportunities for candidates that don’t have their own vehicle, the company said. Store owners absorb the cost of the EVs.
California will have the most EVs in use by Domino’s by the end of the year (105), followed by Michigan (91), Indiana (87), Tennessee (79) and Virginia (56).
