Now you can get the 30 minute or free offer on your pizza, even if you’re on the moon. In a move of stratospheric proportions and more, pizza retail giant Domino’s Pizza plans to set up a pizza restaurant on Earth’s only natural satellite!
This move tops rival Pizza Hut’s move of sending a pizza to astronauts on board the International Space Station. In fulfilling this quest to gain unprecedented bragging rights, Domino’s wants to establish a dome shaped concrete restaurant on the lunar surface. The project is being thought of by the Japanese arm of the company.
They have approached construction firm Maeda Corp for finalising the building construction plans. They plan to use local material as far as possible. In addition to other building material, Domino’s plans to transport as much as 70 tons of pizza making instruments via rockets that will be launched periodically.
The project is estimated to cost more than $13.4 billion or 1.67 trillion Yen. Transporting will account for some $4.5 billion.
What about customers?
That solves everything except the problem of customers. Given that we are nowhere close to building a lunar colony, we wonder whom this lunar restaurant might serve! Maybe a hitchhiker to the galaxy can stop for a break. Douglas, did you think of this?
So is Domino’s going universal? Well, they would seriously hope that aliens exist on the moon. Maybe, they might drop by!
