Gone are the days of big-box fast-food joints, sterile plastic booths, and mystery kitchens. Limited-service brands are getting makeovers, and the results are sleeker, more attractive restaurants that are giving customers even more reason to trade down from full-service experiences.
It isn’t just football players preparing for the big football game next week, but pizza makers and delivery drivers, too. Domino's Pizza is counting down to kickoff and ready to take on its biggest day of the year.
As the Denver and Seattle football teams get ready for their biggest Sunday of the season, Domino's anticipates delivering more than 11 million pizza slices and 3 million chicken wings nationwide on game day—nearly an 80 percent overall increase from a typical Sunday.
A handful of quick-service brands released games for mobile platforms in 2013, and the apps proved to be more than just for fun. In fact, some brands are reporting increased sales and customer loyalty by integrating games within their apps.
Among the restaurant companies that found success this year with app games were Blimpie, McDonald’s, and Chipotle.
Domino's Pizza is inviting the world to join in on the recognized world leader in pizza delivery’s largest weeklong promotion, Global Domino’s Week.
A total of 42 countries will help celebrate the third annual global event by promoting 50 percent off menu-priced pizza via their Facebook pages. The number of participating countries has more than doubled from the 19 countries that participated in Domino’s first-ever global event in 2011.
From passing out fliers to owning and operating 11 franchise units in the Chicago area, Reece Arroyave has done it all with Domino’s. Arroyave was just 12 years old when he started passing out fliers for the pizza brand outside a Chicago-area store. Today, his restaurants span across Chicago, including neighborhoods like Crystal Lake, Glenview, and Chicago proper. Arroyave has been with Domino’s for so long that his only prior work experience before quick service was mowing lawns and delivering newspapers.
Domino’s Pizza is starting this school year with excitement, highlighted by the continued growth of its Domino’s Smart Slice school lunch program. The program, which meets the recently updated USDA school lunch nutrition standards, added 45 percent more schools to the roster compared to last school year, and is available in 33 new districts within 14 states: Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, and Utah.
One of the recognized world leaders in pizza delivery has always been a leader in opportunity – something Mauricio “Reece” Arroyave can attest to. He is one of the 90 percent of current Domino’s Pizza franchisees in the U.S. who started as delivery drivers or pizza makers at the store level.
Domino's Pizza announced the release of its Domino’s Pizza app for Windows Phone 8. This newest mobile offering gives Domino’s an app presence on nearly 95 percent of the smartphones sold in the U.S., and offers a few features that are exclusive to Windows Phone.
In a first for a Domino’s mobile app, the Windows Phone release adds voice capabilities. From the “Menu” section of the app, users can choose to order by voice, telling the app the item they’d like to order; for example, “medium, pepperoni Handmade Pan Pizza.”
Continuing to revolutionize the digital experience, Domino's Pizza is truly opening its doors. Digitally, that is. The recognized world leader in pizza delivery launches its new Domino’s Live online platform – a destination where customers can follow the action of an in-store lunch or dinner rush live, and experience something unique and innovative to the world of pizza and quick service restaurants.
