Domino's Pizza is now giving customers yet another way to order
OREANDA-NEWS. Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery and digital ordering platforms, is now giving customers yet another way to order: via Facebook Messenger, using bot technology.
"We know that customers spend a great deal of time messaging, so we knew the next place we needed to add ordering was via Messenger," said Dennis Maloney, Domino's vice president - chief digital officer. "Messenger allows customers to order conversationally with the help of Domino's bot. We hope this new option will continue to make ordering as simple and as convenient as possible."
