7-Eleven testing drone delivery to elevate customer service

RENO, Nev. — The c-store giant is testing the use of drone technology with the hope of eventually offering its entire range of products.

RENO, Nev. — According to an article posted on cspdailynews.com, c-store merchant 7-Eleven Inc. recently marked the retailer’s 89th anniversary with the first fully autonomous drone delivery to a customer’s residence.

The chain, added the article, hopes to eventually offer its entire assortment of merchandise via an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

“At this time, we do not have specific timing on national rollout. In the future, we look forward to making drone deliveries from our stores,” a 7-Eleven spokesperson told CSP Daily News.

According to the article, products that will be available for this method of delivery include Slurpees, chicken sandwiches, doughnuts, hot coffee, 7-Select candies as well as “everyday essentials,” such as batteries.

“It’s amazing that a flying robot just delivered us food and drinks in a matter of minutes,” said Reno resident Michael, who received a test delivery. “My wife and I both work and have three small children ages 7, 6 and 1. The convenience of having access to instant, 24/7 drone delivery is priceless.”
