Wing Partners with DoorDash in Christiansburg

Montgomery County, VA – Wing recently stated that they are expanding their partnership with DoorDash in the United States. Following a trial in Australia, Wing, DoorDash, and Wendy’s are kicking off their United States collaboration in Christiansburg, Virginia.

According to the announcement by Wing, Christiansburg has been “an integral part of drone delivery’s progress” ever since their first US commercial operations began in the community in 2019. Wing’s drones are ideal for getting smaller items to their destinations quickly and efficiently. With speeds of 65 miles per hour, drones are the perfect option for delivering food and sweet treats.

Drones provide a more environmentally friendly option for single-item deliveries. Combined with their speed and small environmental footprint, they are an excellent choice for smaller DoorDash deliveries.
