Domino’s - fast food chain

Despite the fact that man has stopped going to the moon, Domino’s Pizza Japan has plans to be the first to establish a pizza store on the satellite offering visitors a full restaurant and delivery service.
Domino’s Japan’s president, wearing a full spacesuit with a lovely Domino’s patch, announced detailed plans for a moon location with an estimated budget of $21 billion. “In the future, we anticipate there will be many people living on the moon, astronauts who are working there and regular citizens,” he said. The plan involves 15 rocket trips to the moon to carry approximately 70 tons of construction material and pizza ovens. To save on enormous expenses, Domino’s will use mineral deposits on the moon to get the necessary building materials. ”We started thinking about this project last year, although we have not yet determined when the restaurant might open,” added the president.
There are also plans for a Honda-designed moon scooter to deliver to future moon suburbs. Domino’s has not confirmed if their “30 minutes or it’s free” delivery policy will apply. This announcement comes along with Domino’s Japan’s 25th anniversary and looks like a marketing strategy. The media speculate this is a grand design to attract attention inspired by Pizza Hut’s successful pizza delivery to the international space station in 2001.
So if Domino’s Pizza successfully executes all their plans for a moon branch, maybe you can get them to deliver to you and your friends on a space tour of the upper atmosphere.
