It’s official… Pizza lovers visit Domino’s to get the pep in their step!
It’s time for Kiwis to celebrate their favourite pizza with National Pepperoni Pizza Day this Sunday (20th September). Pepperoni is the most popular pizza in New Zealand, with Domino’s stores across the country delivering, on average, over 10,000 Pepperoni pizzas to hungry Kiwis every day.
This Thursday, 17th September, Domino’s is raising some dough to help fund Youthline’s vital phone and text service, with $1 from every pizza sold between 4pm-9pm being donated.
Due to COVID, Youthline has seen a significant increase in the number of people reaching out for support through their Helpline service this year, while also experiencing a shortfall in funds. This is a trend that looks to continue as economic downturns disproportionately impact the mental health and wellbeing of young people.
Local Blenheim Domino’s Store Owner Chris Donnelly has been working in the pizza business for the last 21 years. Throughout his career he has striven for perfection, and this drive was recognised at this year’s Domino’s ANZ Rally when Chris was awarded with a Leadership Eagle.
Domino’s local store owners, Liam and Kaedyn Stops, are going from strength to strength. In the last 12 months they have not only purchased their fourth Domino’s store, but more recently have been recognised for their exceptional leadership skills at Domino’s annual conference during which they were presented an Eagle Award.
Domino’s Auckland store owners are banding together in the face of New Zealand’s new COVID outbreak by supporting local foodbanks. Over the next seven days (Wednesday 19th- Tuesday 25th August) 50 cents from every pizza sold in the Auckland region will be donated to The Foodbank Project.
With food delivery orders on the rise, Domino’s Pizza are embracing electric transport and Kiwi business UBCO is providing new electric motorbikes for the growing Domino’s fleet; two local businesses innovating for the good of the planet (and pizzas).
On the 15th April, Domino’s launched a recruitment drive as the company looked to hire 1,000 team members. This action was in response to the expected increase in deliveries once the country had moved to Alert Level 3. Over 3000 people applied in the hope of becoming part of the Domino’s family many of whom were hired. For some new team members their new job helped them put food on the table while waiting to go back to their previous role, for others it has been the start of what will become a rewarding career.
Pizza and Coke! It’s been long spruiked as the perfect match in heaven and today Domino’s confirms it couldn’t keep the two from each other for much longer, announcing that Coca-Cola Amatil will once again be the Company’s beverage supplier of choice.
Domino’s is committed to taking away the sting – paying up to $5,000 worth of household bills across New Zealand.
Domino’s team members across New Zealand proudly put on their uniforms and returned to work this morning, as stores opened for their first day of trade after nearly five weeks of Alert Level 4 lockdown.
