Domino's, Pizza Hut introduce no-contact delivery in Japan amidst COVID-19 fears

A notable share of brands have pivoted towards contactless delivery due to the outbreak.

Domino’s and Pizza Hut have introduced contact-free delivery services in Japan amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, similar to other markets around the world.

As reported by Japan Today, Pizza Hut has dubbed their contactless option “Oki Pizza” (“Placed Pizza“), a move they say was prompted by customers who have been requesting a delivery service that lets them avoid having to directly interact with the driver.

Domino’s calls theirs “Zero Contact Drop-Off“, where delivery drivers will place an empty box in a pre-designated spot in order to avoid placing your pizza directly on the ground. The ordered pizza will be set upon the empty box in a plastic bag, and the driver will then ring the doorbell or buzz the intercom to inform customers of the delivery.
