Domino's Pizza Gets Ready for Thanksgiving Eve - One of Year's Busiest Nights
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Turkey, stuffing and cranberry
sauce might be the official foods of Thanksgiving, but Domino's Pizza
(NYSE: DPZ) is the official pizza of Thanksgiving Eve.
That's because Domino's pizza sales on Thanksgiving Eve are expected to
increase by 68 percent over a typical Wednesday. This Wednesday night,
Domino's Pizza will be delivering more than 1.1 million pizzas to homes across
the country, as weary travelers arrive at their destinations, and cooks
everywhere rest up for their big day in the kitchen on Thursday.
"It's one of those nights we highlight on the calendar and prepare for,"
said Domino's Pizza Chairman and CEO David A. Brandon. "Our stores stock up on
fresh food. We increase our staffing levels, sometimes doubling them, to
ensure we can meet the needs of hungry customers across the country."
"Thanksgiving Eve is among the busiest travel days of the year, and
delivered pizza is a great meal to order once you arrive at your destination,"
said Brandon. "We know that many people are preparing to spend much of
Thursday in the kitchen and don't want the hassle of spending time cooking and
cleaning up on Wednesday. Pizza is the perfect solution and the delivery
experts are just a call away."
