Description: If you ordered from Pizza Hut in Vancouver, it could be that your eats were delivered by Angie, Hugo or Raja: three delivery robots. The robots were part of a two-week pilot project at only one location, but customers expressed a high satisfaction rate of 95%. In case you are wondering if someone could hijack the hot pizza on its way down the sidewalk, rest easy. The customer is given a unique code that unlocks the device once it arrives at the home.

Discussion points:

1) Would you be interested in having a robot deliver your food order?

2) Do you think the rise of delivery robots will impact union organizing attempts in the food sector?

3) PepsiCo is mentioned a number of times in Wiley’s Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision-Making. In 1977 Pizza Hut was acquired by Pepsi. Does Pepsi still own Pizza Hut today?
