Domino's Pizza (DPZ) - Get Domino's Pizza, Inc. Report is quite a technology company with 60% of its sales stemming from digital platforms. 

"The majority of the interaction for ordering now on the front end is through digital," said Domino's Pizza CEO Patrick Doyle. "We've got a back end that is about delivering great tasting pizza quickly and efficiently but the front-end interaction with people now is really no different than it is at Amazon (AMZN) - Get Amazon.com, Inc. Report or eBay (EBAY) - Get eBay Inc. Report or any other technology company."

Meanwhile, Doyle is bullish on self-driving cars.

TheStreet Recommends

The company recently announced a link-up with Ford (F) - Get Ford Motor Company Report to test self-driving pizza delivery vehicles, a technology Doyle expects in action within 10 years.

"Transportation is going to change," he said in an interview with TheStreet, adding that the self-driving car hype is not getting out of hand. "I think 10 years from now, it's going to be the majority of transportation."

Doyle said it's still unclear how people will interact with the technology. "What do you do if there's no parking outside of the building," he said, referring to the pizza delivery process. "That's what we're testing - that last 50 feet."
