You Can Now Get Domino's Delivered Almost Anywhere

If you’ve ever tried to order a pizza while you’re at the beach or enjoying a nice afternoon at the park, you’ll know the hassle of trying to find a nearby address to have it delivered. Domino’s may have a solution, as the United States’ largest pizza chain is rolling out a new “anywhere” delivery service this summer.

The new program, Pinpoint Delivery, lets customers drop a pin on a map to specify a location. They can then track their order and the driver and get alerts. Limitations, such as delivery distance and availability, still apply. The company said the service is available in most stores, but you’ll need to check before getting your hopes up.

The service is another clever innovation for Domino’s, as it continues working to recover from slow sales. Late last year, the company announced an investment in a fleet of 800 Chevrolet Bolt EVs for delivery vehicles, and earlier this year, Domino’s made its app available for Apple CarPlay, letting drivers order pizza from their infotainment systems. 

While these updates are likely welcome news for delivery pizza fans, Domino’s hasn’t always hit home runs with its initiatives. A few years back, the company decided to build its own delivery cars, with pizza ovens in the back seat and a unique Domino’s livery. Though the Chevy Spark-based cars were functionally solid and had a unique design, Domino’s ultimately canned the project after building just a few of the thousands planned.

    My Dominoes story. When I first moved to Oakland I had to replace the front door. While it was off, I tried to order pizza from Dominoes. I've seen their store a few blocks away, but they said they didn't deliver to my neighborhood, call this other store. So I got the run around from 3 stores, until one of them refered me back to the first one I called. This was a long time ago, so I got out the phone book and found NY Pizza and ordered from them. Great service and great pizza. That was decades ago and I've never gotten anything from Dominoes since or ever for that matter.

    Had Domino's last night just to see if it is as terrible as everyone here says.

    And who made the recommendation regarding Irish butter on toast? That was a good one.

      Ordered a single serve pizza at a moderately upscale restaurant this afternoon as a point of comparison. (Science!)

    There is part of a Dominos pizza in the fridge right now. I didn't order it, didn't ask for it, didn't spec out the toppings (sausage) but it's there. If you add onion to it, maybe some bacon, a little extra sauce, oregano and basil and put it in the air fryer on a high heat setting for a few minutes, you might surprise yourself. Add at least a tablespoon of water in the bottom of the air fryer first.

    (Or if you'd rather have a roast beef, turkey and swiss sandwich on sourdough bread with mayo, mustard, onion, pickles, lettuce, tomato, salt and pepper, all that stuff is in there too.)

    I imagine this policy may not be popular with drivers. I would worry about becoming "the next Brian Wells".
