Domino’s Pizza Inc., based in Ann Arbor Township, has partnered with Xevo Inc. in Seattle to preload the latest AnyWare pizza ordering platform in cars beginning this year.
The new app will be powered by Xevo Market, an automotive commerce platform for connected cars.
“At Domino’s, we want pizza ordering to be simple and always within reach, no matter where a customer happens to be,” says Chris Roeser, director of digital experience. “This new AnyWare platform will make ordering pizza easy, whether you’re in the car waiting for the kids to finish soccer practice or you’re on your way home from work.”
Customers can log in and order pizza from their vehicles’ touchscreens. They also can locate their local store and call in an order from the in-car interface. Orders will be tracked so customers know when the pizza is ready.
Xevo Market already is live in millions of vehicles.
In related news, Domino’s has opened its first Bangladesh location in Dhaka, the country’s capital.
Domino’s franchisee Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd. and its local operator Golden Harvest opened the location.
“We are excited to launch the first Domino’s restaurant in Dhaka and look forward to offering a menu that keeps the needs and preferences of local customers in mind, while also offering the best of the brand’s international menu,” says Pratik Pota, CEO and director of Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd. “We believe that our high-quality products and value will resonate well with customers. We will also be one of the first brands to launch an ordering app that will help to redefine the pizza ordering experience for customers in Bangladesh.”
Additional locations are planned for later this year. Domino’s now operates in more than 85 markets worldwide. It has more than 15,900 stores and had global retail sales of more than $13.5 billion in 2018.
