A History of The Company and Its Products
Domino’s is headquartered at the Domino Farms Office Park in Ann Arbor Charter Township, Michigan. It was founded in 1960 and is now the second-largest pizza chain in the United States (second only to Pizza Hut), and is the largest worldwide with 10,000 stores.
When Domino’s began in 1960, Tom Monaghan and his brother, James, purchased a small pizza store in Ypsilanti, Michigan called DomiNick’s. While they originally agreed to split the working hours, James refused to quit his full-time job as a postman, which resulted in him trading his portion of the company to Tom in exchange for the Volkswagen beetle they used for pizza deliveries.
After purchasing two other pizza restaurants, one day an employee came back form his delivery and suggested the name Domino’s, which Tom loved. That’s how the company was renamed to its current title in 1965. The original logo had three dots which represented the three stores. The original idea was to add a dot for every store. Luckily that didn’t stick around, could you imagine 10,000 dots on their logo?
In 1983, the first international location opened in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In the same year, Domino’s also opened the 1,000th store. In 1985, the first U.K location opened as well. In 1998, after owning the company for 38 years, Tom Monaghan sold 93 percent of his company to Bain Capital for roughly $1 billion.
In 2007, the company introduced the online and mobile ordering websites. In 2008 they added the iconic “Pizza Tracker” which allows customers to see the progress of their order in “real time.”
The current menu varies from region to region, but the primary theme is Italian-American dishes. The main focus is pizza, with custom and specialty options. A number of toppings and crust styles are offered for these pizzas. There are also pasta, bread bowl, and oven-basked sandwich options.
Interestingly enough, Domino’s sells Coca-Cola products, and is the only pizza chain among the “Big Four” to do so. All of the others sell Pepsi products.
Pizza is something that, like burgers, can be done a bunch of different ways. Since you’re applying here, be sure to check out Pizza Hut as well. From there, head on over to our Subway page. Finally, don’t forget to apply to a great fast food company like Chick-Fil-A.
