Domino’s Pizza store manager Steve Cubitt from Manchester – All Saints, has been awarded the highly prestigious title of international manager of the year at Domino’s worldwide annual awards in Las Vegas.
Beating stiff competition from thousands of Domino’s stores in over 60 countries, Steve was awarded the title for his determination, exceptional performance and for the high standards of food safety, quality and service that he achieves in his store on a daily basis.
Steve’s ambition and passion has seen him progress from a part-time driver during his studies at university to assistant manager and then manager of the Manchester Fallowfield store. In June 2008, Steve became manager of Domino’s new Manchester All Saints store and under his leadership the store has gone from strength to strength.
Unfortunately, Steve was unable to collect his award in person in Las Vegas so, in true Oscar-style, he recorded a video acceptance speech which was played at the awards in front of the 6,000 guests from Domino’s worldwide. The award has now crossed the Atlantic and is with its rightful owner, Steve.
Steve Cubitt, Domino’s international manager of the year 2010, said: “I am completely overwhelmed to be given this award. There are so many fantastic managers across Domino’s stores worldwide that I really didn’t expect to win. The award means everything to me – I’m so proud of everything I’ve achieved with Domino’s so far and this award has just made me even more focused and determined to carry on doing my job. It’s a shame I couldn’t make it to Las Vegas to accept the award but I’m looking forward to having a second celebration here in the UK with my franchisee and my team.”
Domino’s Pizza’s international awards recognise the talents and hard work of the franchisees and in-store teams from the company’s 9,000 stores in over 60 countries. Domino’s is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary in the UK and 50th anniversary in the USA so this year’s awards were a very special occasion, marking a significant milestone in the company’s history.
