A Buffalo Wild Wings franchisee has announced the decision to test a drone delivery program at one of its locations.
Deuce Drone has signed a demonstration agreement with franchisee Potters Wings Mobile.
The demonstration will likely take place in August at the brand’s bar in Mobile, Alabama.
Buffalo Wild Wings was founded in 1982 and is the largest sports bar brand in the US.
Deuce Drone will cover aspects of the project such as the design and operation of the landing, recharging and package handling system, and the software interfacing with both the drone and the point-of-sale (POS) operating system.
“Buffalo Wild Wings is a perfect test case for Deuce Drone’s last mile delivery solution,” said Rhett Ross, CEO of Deuce Drone. “We feel we offer Buffalo Wild Wings a significant opportunity to provide alternative means of food and drink delivery to consumers.”
Meanwhile, Brian Jordan of Potters Wings Mobile said: “Partnering with Deuce Drone will give us the opportunity to test new ways to evolve and meet the takeout needs of customers through drone technology.
“Deuce Drone’s expertise in aerospace, construction and technology delivers an innovative solution that could reduce costs and delivery time, while giving customers the option of a truly contactless delivery.”
