DOMINO’S TOPS £10 MILLION IN MOBILE SALES AND LAUNCHES NEW ANDROID APP

May 18th, 2011

Domino’s Pizza, the pizza delivery expert, has topped sales of £10 million through its mobile channels. The company’s phenomenal growth in mobile sales has today been bolstered with the launch of Domino’s new Android ordering app.

Domino’s existing mobile channels include an iPhone ordering app and mobile optimised website. The iPhone app, first launched in September, has achieved over 500,000 downloads to date. Domino’s mobile optimised website was introduced in December, making it possible for BlackBerry and other smart phone users to also order pizza whenever and wherever they are. Pizza sales taken through the iPhone app and mobile optimised ordering site have just reached over £10 million.

The Android app, launched today, is the newest addition to Domino’s suite of mobile ordering channels. The free app has many of the same features as Domino’s iPhone app including a carousel style menu to allow customers to select their favourite pizzas, sides, desserts, subs and drinks. Pizzas can be customised by pinching to resize the base and scattering on a range of tasty toppings before sending the order straight to the store. Android users can also be in with the chance of winning money off their next order by popping their pizza in the oven and swiping or blowing away the steam to reveal a code. Then, while the pizza is in the real oven, users can keep tabs on its progress with the real-time pizza tracker.

Simon Wallis, sales and marketing director for Domino’s, said: “We’re always looking for innovative ways to allow our customers to order. We first launched online ordering ten years ago and, based on its phenomenal success, we were keen to capitalise on new opportunities created by mobile channels. Investing in this type of technology is now paying dividends for us, achieving pizza sales of over £10 million. With sales of Android phones reported to be up 810 per cent year on year*, we’re excited about what the future holds with the launch of our new app, which will allow even more pizza lovers to order on the move.”

DOMINO’S TEAM MEMBERS TO ATTEMPT LONGEST SHIFT FOR CHARITY

May 18th, 2011

- 36 hour pizza making marathon in Crawley for Help for Heroes -

Domino’s Pizza team members, Lisa Ramage and Peter Halliden, are embarking on a marathon shift on Friday [May 20, 2011] to help raise funds for Help for Heroes. The pizza making pair are aiming to work continuously for over 36 hours.

The shift will kick off at 9am on Friday in Domino’s Crawley store and will see Lisa and Peter working non-stop to take orders, make pizzas and serve customers. The pair hope to complete 36 hours in-store and will be clocking off at 9pm on Saturday May 21, 2011.

Lisa Ramage, who is an area manager for the Domino’s Pizza franchise, said: “Domino’s Crawley store is open 24 hours a day so this seemed the perfect place to stage our attempt at the longest shift. We were inspired by the longest radio show Chris Moyles and Dave Vitty completed on Radio One for Comic Relief and we thought it’d be a great challenge to help raise funds for Help for Heroes, which is a very worthy cause.”

Peter Halliden, company trainer for the Domino’s franchise, added: “Our colleagues think we’re mad! A normal Friday night shift at Domino’s can be hectic but to carry on and do 36 hours is going to be no mean feat. We have a great deal of respect for the great work that Help for Heroes does and we hope our shift will encourage people to dig deep and cheer us on to make as much money as possible for the charity.”

The 36 hour pizza making marathon is part of the store’s 2011 fundraising efforts for Help for Heroes. The team at Crawley aim to raise as much as they can this year for Help for Heroes, a charity which supports members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of their country.

To support Lisa and Peter during the longest shift, pop in to the store at 97 High Street, Northgate, Crawley or donate online at  www.justgiving.com/Natasha-Hurd

DOMINO’S FRANCHISEE SCOOPS TOP AWARD FOR WOMEN IN BUSINESS

May 15th, 2011

Domino’s Pizza franchisee, Lisa Tobias, has scooped a top national award for women in franchising. Lisa won Woman Franchisee of the Year 2010 at the first annual Encouraging Women into Franchising (EWIF) Awards.

EWIF is an organisation which seeks to inspire, educate, encourage and support women in franchising and the awards recognise the success of females in the industry. Lisa was awarded Woman Franchisee of the Year for her dedication and determination, which has seen her go from being gymnast and part-time worker at Domino’s to a highly successful, inspirational businesswoman.

Lisa, aged 30, currently owns five Domino’s Pizza stores in Scotland and employs over 200 members of staff. She is the company’s most successful female franchisee in the UK and Ireland but still finds time for family – she opened her fifth store in Irvine in March 2010 when her daughter Naomi was only six weeks old. Lisa is also a regular speaker at national franchising events and is an ambassador for the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust and for Enterprise Insight’s Girls! Make Your Mark scheme.

Lisa Tobias said: “I am absolutely thrilled to win this EWIF award for women in franchising. Franchising is a fantastic opportunity for people to run their own businesses and I would love to see more women taking up the reins and proving what great opportunities there are for female entrepreneurs. I’m really passionate about what I do and with the fantastic teams in each of my stores behind me, I’m very excited about what the future holds.”

Andy Hirst, head of franchise development at Domino’s, adds: “Lisa is our most successful female franchisee and winning this EWIF award is fantastic recognition of her hard work and achievements to date. We have been delighted to see her progress from a part-time pizza maker to multi-unit franchisee. It’s franchisees such as Lisa that really show what can be achieved in franchising and the great opportunities it offers women looking to take their career in a new direction.”

DOMINO’S PIZZA CROWNS ITS FASTEST PIZZA MAKER

May 2nd, 2011

Prem Singh of Leicester wins fastest pizza making competition

Domino’s Pizza, the pizza delivery expert, held its annual fastest pizza maker competition in Milton Keynes last week [Wednesday, April 20].  Prem Singh of Leicester was crowned the fastest pizza maker in the UK and Ireland after achieving an amazing time of 59.69 seconds.

Regional heats took place around the country in March with the quickest contenders from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland all qualifying to take part in the final at Milton Keynes.

To take part, each competitor had to make three large pizzas from scratch – one topped with pepperoni, one with mushrooms and the final one topped with just cheese.  All pizzas had to be made to a high standard in as fast a time as possible.

All the competitors were fired up and hungry to win – determined to put their pizza making skills to the test after spending months practicing dough stretching, saucing and topping.

Winner, Prem Singh, said: “I am thrilled to win first place in this competition.  It is a tough contest with lots of great contenders so when I realised I had won I felt on top of the world!  I am now determined to go on and win the European final that takes place next month [May].   If I could take away the title it would be a dream come true.  This competition is so much fun and it is brilliant to be a part of it.”

Simon Hudson, judge for the competition, said: “The competitors this year were as feisty as ever.  There was a real sense of excitement in the room as the competition took place – the crowd were really supportive and cheered each participant on.  Each contestant eagerly wanted to see if their time was going to be faster that the person before them.  The pizza quality and speed was fantastic – as always this competition is great fun to judge.”

Of all the finalists that took part, only the fastest two go through to the European final that takes place on May 23, at the ACC in Liverpool.  Prem Singh will be joined by runner-up, Kirat Toor of London, to face other expert pizza makers and compete for the title of Fastest Pizza Maker in Europe.
