7-Eleven Delivers Slurpees To Customers’ Homes For The Ultimate Convenience
The convenience store partners with Flirtey to make the first at-home drone delivery in the United States
Convenience store chain 7-Eleven has partnered with drone delivery start-up Flirtey to deliver a slew of snacks ranging from Slurpees to donuts to hot coffee to a family’s home in Reno, Nevada.
Based in Reno, Flirtey doesn’t re-appropriate already-built drones. Instead, the start-up develops the software and the hardware on its own, and has even created its own shipping containers to keep the goods secure while they’re being delivered mid-air.
