Trick or treat takes to the skies with Manna Drone Delivery
Manna delivers Halloween treats to homes in Fort Worth, Texas
In a world-first, Manna Drone Delivery, Europe's largest and most-advanced drone delivery operator, took trick or treating to new heights, delivering candy to families in North Texas by drone.
Given the incredibly wet weather the Dallas/Fort Worth area has been experiencing, kids can stay dry and still participate in the Halloween festivities, says a release from Manna Drone Delivery.
"Trick or treating kicked-off Manna Drone Delivery's first U.S. operations where they'll be delivering to residents at Pecan Square by Hillwood Communities. Residents will have the opportunity to order a range of food and beverages from both national and local retailers including a wide selection of Halloween chocolates and candies."
Andrew Patton, Head of U.S, Manna Drone Delivery says: "After over four years of operations and over 150,000 flights logged in Europe, we are excited to be touching down in the United States to offer the residents of Dallas/Fort Worth a lightning-quick and sustainable home delivery service. We are taking Halloween to new heights with a fun new way for kids to trick or treat - especially when the weather isn't very Halloween compatible."
Manna is also partnering with the Tarrant Area Food Bank, which serves nearly one million meals a week to residents in North Texas, by making a donation for every flight conducted this year, the release added.
Service will be available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays to members of the Pecan Square community. Select products and sweet treats from popular local retailers Farmhouse Coffee & Treasures and The Touring Chocolatier as well as some notable national brands will be available for purchase.
