DOMINO’S WEBSITE SCOOPS DOUBLE AWARD

March 31st, 2011

Pizza delivery experts win two awards in Experian Hitwise UK Top 10

Domino’s Pizza, the pizza delivery expert, has scooped two prestigious online awards in the latest Experian Hitwise UK Top 10 programme. The awards recognise the country’s leading websites.

Domino’s website – www.dominos.co.uk – has been polled as the top site in both the brands and manufacturing and restaurants and catering categories for the food and beverage sector. The pizza delivery expert beat off stiff competition from other top national companies and well known household names to win two awards for 2010.

The annual Experian Hitwise UK Top 10 Awards recognise excellence in online performance through public popularity. Results are based on the internet usage of more than eight million UK internet users across over 160 industry categories. The winners are those who receive the greatest market share of visits throughout 2010. Domino’s received the two awards based on the market share of visits achieved from January to December 2010.

Chris Moore, chief executive of Domino’s Pizza, said: “We launched our ordering website 10 years ago and we’re always looking for innovative ways to continue driving our online traffic. Online orders account for an increasingly large proportion of our business and we work hard to ensure our website allows pizza lovers to order quickly and easily. To win one award is a fantastic achievement, but to scoop two really is the icing on the cake – or the pepperoni on our pizza!”

Our customers and Facebook fans told us they wanted an easier way to pay – we listened to them and we’re now pleased to introduce PayPal, which is fast, safe and secure. It’s great to be able to offer our customers the option of using PayPal to pay for pizza in just a couple of clicks!”

Cameron McLean, general manager, merchant services at PayPal, said: “We welcome Domino’s on board as our latest high street partner and one of the first pizza delivery companies to join us.

DOMINO’S APPOINTS NEW OPERATIONS DIRECTOR

March 1st, 2011

Domino’s Pizza, the number one pizza delivery company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Kerri Hayman, as its new Operations Director.  Kerri begins this new role with immediate effect.

Kerri succeeds Patricia Thomas who has been with the company for five years.  Patricia is moving back to her native USA where she will undertake a new role for Domino’s UK & Ireland, as Executive Vice President for Special Projects.   This role will see Patricia liaise between here and the USA to ensure best practices are shared and implemented.

Kerri has a vast amount of experience within Domino’s Pizza as she joins the UK franchise from Domino’s Pizza Enterprises in Australia (DPE).  Kerri joined DPE in 1988 and has seen the company progress on a national and international basis since then.  Kerri comes with a wealth of knowledge, experience and ideas from the high volume stores of the Australian market and will be taking those practices into the UK and Irish markets.

During her tenure at DPE her achievements have included International Supervisor of the Year, State Manager of the Year and Queensland Women in Business – Businesswomen of the Year finalist, as well as numerous sales and service awards.  Kerri is very focused about each store getting involved with its local community.  In 2006, when cyclone Larry hit Australia, Kerri launched a plan of action to help support all those affected, by instructing the stores to feed free pizza to the homeless and the volunteers that helped at the scene.  Delivering more into the local community is actively encouraged throughout the Domino’s system and Kerri is a proud advocate of this philosophy.

Chris Moore, Domino’s Chief Executive, said: “I am delighted to wish Kerri all the best as she takes over as operations director for Domino’s Pizza UK & Ireland.  Kerri strives for operational excellence and her many accomplishments in providing consistent service, high standards and store profits are admirable.  Kerri’s brings with her an abundance of passion and energy for Domino’s and she is a ‘hands-on’ operator who likes to play an active part in the development and engagement of her team.  We are very excited to see the results she will bring and the ideas she has to put forward.   Her experience and knowledge of the business will be invaluable to us and I can’t think of anyone better to replace Patricia Thomas.”

Kerri joined Domino’s UK & Ireland as Deputy Operations Director a few months ago and has been familiarising herself with the UK and Irish operations as well as with her new team, the franchisees and the stores.

Kerri Hayman said: “I am thrilled to be appointed as Operations Director for Domino’s Pizza UK & Ireland.  This year I will celebrate 23 years with Domino’s and I am very excited to be a part of the largest Domino’s market outside of the USA.  I am surrounded by a great team and I am excited about the future growth of the company and the part I can play in it.  My passion lies with the franchisees and their stores and I am looking forward to taking over from Patricia and following in her steps to continue the great work that she has done with Domino’s Pizza operations.”
