Domino’s Pizza in Japan has announced its plan to put up the first fast-food outlet on the Moon as reported by The Daily Telegraph on Thursday, September 01, 2011.

As being featured by Domino’s Pizza Japan on its official website, its CEO and President Scott Oelkers is shown wearing a full spacesuit and presenting a large photo of the Moon Branch Project.

The plan was noted to be having a cost of approximate 1.67 trillion yen or £13.4 billion. Out of this amount, Y560 billion (£4.5 billion) will be allocated for the transportation of 70 tons of construction materials and pizza-making equipment.

Furthermore, the restaurant is being expected to have a two-storey dome of around 26 meters, a basement level made of steel plating and the pizza preparation area.

“We started thinking about this project last year, although we have not yet determined when the restaurant might open,” Domino’s Spokesperson Tomohide Matsunaga was quoted as saying.

“In the future, we anticipate there will be many people living on the moon, astronauts who are working there and, in the future, citizens of the moon,” he added.
