This frozen yogurt shop takes it to the next level with drone delivery on a college campus



Orange Leaf, an Oklahoma City-based frozen yogurt company, delivered cups of frozen yogurt by air to students on Tuesday at Hope College in Michigan.

It is possibly the first ever drone to door delivery of froyo in the world.

Students, faculty or administrators at Hope College in Holland can schedule a drone delivery from the Orange Leaf Holland store.

Fees associated with delivery will be negotiated at the time of order.

What's up the the Orange Unicorn thing?

The drone took 15 minutes to travel nearly a mile to the campus, WOOD TV8 reports.

The company threw a party at Hope College to celebrate the delivery.

How do they do it?

The drone can reach up to 30 mph and carry up to 30 lbs.

More orders and more tests will bring further opportunities to deliver and expand this to other markets in the area and beyond.
