Domino’s Pizza was founded in 1960 and since then has grown to become the largest pizza delivery company in the United States. It has grown from a mom-and-pop pizza store to a network of company-owned, franchise-owned stores in the United States and across the globe and was recently ranked number 1 in Forbes magazine’s “Top 20 Franchises for the Money” list (David, R 2013, p. 372). Domino’s Pizza was the brain child of the brothers Tom and James Monaghan who grew up in foster care and had dreams of success. In 1960 the brothers opened their first pizza store in Ypsilanti, Michigan named Domi-Nicks with a nine hundred dollar start up loan. In 1961 Tom acquired full and sole ownership of Domi-Nicks by trading his brother James a car, a Volkswagen Beetle to be specific, for his half of the business. He then changed the name to Domino’s Pizza Inc. During the period from 1965 to 1978 Domino’s experienced steady growth and had increased from the initial mom-and-pop store, to having 200 locations nationwide. The 1980’s saw continued expansion of Domino’s and its brand. They grew to more than 5,000 locations in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Japan, Australia and Columbia (David, R. 2013, p.372). In 1986 Domino’s Pizza launched its Pizza Partners Foundation which is 100% funded by team member and franchise contributions and has disbursed nearly $12 million to aid team members facing crisis situations.
Company founder Tom Monaghan eventually retired in 1998 and sold 93% of the company, which was worth $1 billion at the time to Bain Capital Inc. Domino’s continued to enjoy continued success after the sale to Bain Capital Inc. and in 2004 it became a publically traded company on the New York Stock Exchange. The initial stock offering price was $16 per share and the value placed on the company rose to $2 billion. This gave Bain Capital a…...

Domino Pizza Case

...ability to transfer their resources to franchisees and to adapt to local tastes. We will then suggest Domino’s to improve their appraisal of the local environment and ensure better respect of their procedures to achieve higher returns in the foreign market. In Appendix 4, we notice that profitability is low in Europe but quite high in Asia. Especially, we can see that Domino’s have been very successful in Taïwan, Mexico and Japan³ but failed miserably in other foreign countries. Further study of the appendix shows that Domino’s have not been successful in countries where they tried to enter the market directly. Domino’s operated directly in France until 1993; during this period, the company recorded a 33% loss but, as soon as a local Domino sub-franchisee arrived, the company’s performances improved by 27 points. Therefore, we can assume that a company totally stranger to a country cannot enter the country market successfully unless it adopts a franchise system of entry. This method of entering into a foreign market consists of charging a fee and a royalty for allowing a patented technology or a brand name to be used by another organization⁴. Instead of entering a new market, the company transfer its resources to a franchisee for money. The advantages are twofold: the company can enter a market with limited risks (because of low investment required) and can access local businessmen and their knowledge of local customers through a transfer of resources. This local knowledge...

Dominos Inc while allowing entrepreneurs to invest in Domino’s and open their own store(s). Another instance in which Domino’s exhibits their best cost strategy is being the market share leader in the delivery segment and the second largest in carry-out. Domino’s specifically states that the above fact is a “segment we have been focused on growing given our strong brand, convenient store locations and quality, affordable menu offerings” (“Domino’s Pizza Inc.,” 2012). Domino’s successfully competes in the fast food industry with the help of their four p’s of marketing. First off, with respect to the product, Domino’s offers its consumers 34 million different combinations of creating a pizza. This is their primary product; however, since 2008 Dominos have been implementing new appetizers and entrees on their menu to diversify from their primary product. Some of the new products include: cinnamon sticks, wings, pastas, and sandwiches. Due to the nature of this specific type of business, price does not greatly fluctuate among various products because the fast food industry is based on the premise of convenience for a product that is generally accepted as inexpensive. In this area, promotion and price coincide in which they use promotion methods to offer numerous price points to customers. For example “Two Medium, Two-topping pizzas for $5.99 each”. Other than promotions used for their pricing strategy, the other aspect of pricing is the difference among the carry out option......

Dominos Supply Chain

...chain model? How would you change it? Domino's pizza has adopted the Make-to-Stock Approach for the management of their supply chain. They entirely supply all their masters franchises. Nevertheless stores might get caught with high levels of inventory and stock items. A more efficient stock management and control tool to the stores combine with better forecasting to predict the demand would be a good way to improve the supply chain. What role, if any, did the supply chain did in Domino's turn around? A very important role. As I mentioned before the success of Domino’s company does not come from the taste of the pizza, or the commodity of their facilities. It comes from the supply chain and the power that Domino’s has over it. Has Dominos gone too far with the transparency? I don’t believe so, it might seem that they had gone too far but the dynamic of feedback by Twitter it mostly focus in the taste of their food, and the customer services that even if its an important role in any business is not the main role of the Domino’s corporation. Should Domino's attempt to expand its supply chain internationally? Domino’s is already operating in other countries rather than US, nevertheless I don’t think it would be a good idea to expand to I don’t know, Europe, because the type of the market. The politic of being the supplier of their own franchises it works here, and in countries closer to the US but I don’t think it would be a good idea to go farer than that....

...products. Many other companies are introducing salads into their menu. The popularity of the Internet as well as mobile commerce is transforming the original ways of ordering a pizza. SWOT Analysis Within the Domino’s company, there are many characteristics that make it stand out from other companies. Domino’s carries an extremely strong brand image. They are able to retain customers because of their image. However, the decline in the economy has forced many customers to hold back in their spending, resulting in lower revenues. Nevertheless, Domino’s could use the expanding growth in the fast food industry in China and India to their advantage. But with new markets comes new competition, which is a threat to Domino’s. Competition Dominos competes with both fast food companies such as McDonald’s, as well as other pizza makers like Pizza Hut or Papa John’s. McDonald’s brand image is very strong throughout all parts of the world. Papa John’s compete directly with one another. Recently, Papa John’s is increasing competition to Domino’s because of their rising popularity. Pizza Hut the largest competitor for Domino’s. Like Domino’s, Pizza Hut also maintains a very good brand image. Recommendations Within the short term, Domino’s should focus on making more coupons available to their customers. They could also offer specials for certain times or reasons. This would help combat their tough competition as well as their declining sales. The company can also focus on......

...Campaign.” After months of focus groups and surveys, Domino’s created a completely new pizza. The head chefs for Dominos looked at “10 crust types, 15 sauces, and dozens of cheeses” (Domino’s 2009). Karen Keiser, Domino’s Director, said, “you can’t just add a little salt and add a little something…we basically had to start over” (Kaiser). Then, Domino’s marketed its new pizza through the same social media (YouTube) that harmed it during the crisis. It was successful, proven by its increased sales by 14.3% in that first quarter after the “Pizza Turnaround Campaign” (Q1 2010 Financial Results).

...Domino Pizza A Domino Pizza üzleti terve Hámor Szabolcs és Hajós Tamás vállalkozási ötletéről szól. Lényege egy olyan étterem nyitása Budapesten, amely magas minőséget elérhető áron kínál. Az étterem fő tevékenységként pizzák, frissensültek, tészták, saláták elkészítését és házhozszállítását vállalja majd, de a céges rendezvények számára catering szolgáltatást is fog nyújtani, vagyis külső rendezvényekre nagy tételben hideg és/vagy melegételt szállít. Az üzleti terv szerintem legnagyobb erőssége, hogy próbál épíeni a Giuseppe Pizzéria tapasztalataira, figyelembe veszik amit ott megtanultak illetve igyekeznek kihasználni az onnan kapott referenciákat. A széles választék, illetve az hogy az étlap tervezésére nagy hangsúlyt fektetnek (amiből következik remélhetőleg hogy tényleg jó minőségű lett) vonzó lehet a leendő vendégek számára, mint ahogyan az is hogy figyeltek a diétás és egészséges ételek kedvelőire is, mivel tudják hogy az ilyen jellegű termékek iránt a kereslet folyamatosan növekszik. Ami még az erősségek közé sorolható, hogy az internetes megjelenésnek nem csak és kizárólag az a célja hogy értékesítési csatornaként működjön, hanem ezen keresztül szeretnének visszajelzéseket kapni a fogyasztóktól és ezáltal javítani a vállalkozáson. Ami még szerintem mindenképpen jó ötlet, hogy a például a pizza osztással elég jól meg tudja ragadni a célcsoport figyelmét, illetve a figyelemfelkeltő reklámok az ingyenes kóstolással jó párosítás lehetnek.
