Domino’s Pizza Announces Plans for a Franchise on the Moon
The Japanese arm of the company has announced today that it wants to build the first pizzeria on the lunar surface: Domino’s Moon Branch. The stunt follows rival chain Pizza Hut’s mission to the International Space Station in 2001, when a pizza was delivered to astronauts orbiting the earth.
With the restaurant chain estimating the the cost of turning the stunt into reality would be a colossal ¥1.67 trillion ($21.8 billion), Domino’s said the Maeda construction company had begun drawing up plans for a two-story, dome-shaped lunar eatery. It added that the eatery’s staff would live on-site at the 28-yard-wide (26-meter-wide) building.
Considering Domino’s net income in 2010 was only $88 million, they’ll have to sell a lot more pizzas to justify opening take-out restaurants in extraterrestrial locations.
Wow, talk about having a slow day at work…Early adopters should be buying land plots now.
