Toyota teams up with Pizza Hut for the future of food delivery

Staff writer

Self-driving sushi? Driverless Danish pastries? How about robotic rice noodles, or labour-saving lentils? All this could be in the future, but for now, it's only Pizza Hut sprinkling the autonomozzarella on its own product portfolio – thanks to a partnership with Toyota.

The restaurant, which cooks and delivers more pizzas than any other worldwide, has joined forces with the world's largest car brand to create a concept autonomous delivery vehicle. Named the e-Palette, it's a totally reconfigurable self-driving compartment, and Pizza Hut wants to configure it to deliver its wares – and possibly even cook them on the way.
