              It seems like every week there is a new company testing out drone or robotic technology. Chipotle recently tested drone burrito delivery,Amazonmade headlines when it moved forward with testing drones in the U.K. (and blasting the FAA for being too slow) andFacebook said it was testing solar-powered drones for Internet connectivity. Andfranchises are getting in on this kind of technology, too.
    From Pizza Hut to 7-Eleven, franchises are using these new technologies in their day-to-day operations.
