Trick-or-treaters in Fort Worth’s Pecan Square will not get their candy tonight by ringing doorbells but rather, by drone.

Manna Aero’s drone delivery will be bringing Halloween treats from the sky to homes in the North Texas area in an effort to not let the holiday be hampered by the wet weather it has been experiencing. 

The trick-or-treat delivery marks Manna drone delivery’s first time operating in the U.S. 

“After over four years of operations and over 150,000 flights logged in Europe, we are excited to be touching down in the United States to offer the residents of Dallas/Fort Worth a lightning-quick and sustainable home delivery service,” said Andrew Patton, head of U.S. for Manna Drone Delivery. “We are taking Halloween to new heights, with a fun new way for kids to trick or treat – especially when the weather isn’t very Halloween compatible!”

Residents at Pecan Square by Hillwood Communities can order a range of food and beverages, as well as Halloween chocolates and candies for delivery from national and local retailers. 

“We’re excited to see Manna commercialize drone delivery in the U.S. at the AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone, bringing an innovative last-mile delivery solution to Pecan Square residents,” said Christopher Ash, senior vice president of aviation business development for Hillwood. “At Hillwood, we are a team collaborating to bring innovative supply chain technologies to North Texas and provide next-level amenities to the communities we reach.”

And Manna’s drone deliveries won’t stop after the holiday ends. Residents can access the service Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from local retailers and other brands for delivery.

Manna has also partnered with Tarrant Area Food Bank by donating for every flight conducted this year.
