    Amazon employs more than 20,000 people in Texas, including thousands at the company's fulfillment center in Haslet.

    Sherry Willenborg helps manage the robotics program there, supervising how your purchases make their way toward your doorstep.

    The second you hit purchase, robots at the fulfillment center lift and move shelves of products to employees, who sort the items and send them to you.

    Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    "We actually have stores on Amazon that specifically sell items by small businesses," said Allison Leader, of Amazon. "Our goal is to help businesses grow and get more eyes on their products."
