Friar Tuck’s has become the first company in Ireland to experiment using civilian flying drones to deliver food to their customers’ doors.
“We are very proud to be on the crest of a wave, leading the way, at the forefront of the cutting edge of the new era of fast food delivery. We believe this is just the beginning for this technology. Someday, all fast food will be delivered this way.”
The initiative has not been without its detractors. A spokesman for Newry Concerned Residents was quick to air his group’s concerns.
“As much as we are extremely interested in fast food being delivered hotter and faster than ever before, we do have a problem with the tracking program installed in the drones that scans windows as it flies by, so basically Friar Tuck’s will be able to see you in your own living room. They are almost as intrusive as Facebook.”
Recent polling suggests, however, that a vast majority of Newry citizens would be quite willing to give up a portion of their privacy to get hotter, faster Chicken Burgers with Loads of Coleslaw.
