Domino's Edges Out the Competition in Recent Polls
ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, is the preferred pizza of viewers and fans of CNBC's "Squawk Box," according to a live poll taken on the show's Web site.
"Squawk Box" hosted an impromptu poll on their site following news of the 3,000 store opening of one of Domino's competitors. In the poll, Web site visitors were asked which pizza they preferred and were given a choice between the three largest national brands, including Domino's Pizza. Capturing 2,649 votes out of 7,159 total votes cast (37% of the votes), Domino's was revealed as the clear winner.
Another recent indicator of pizza consumer's preference for Domino's was the chain's receipt of Brandweek magazine's 2005 Customer Loyalty Award. Domino's tied for first place, scoring 112 points out of an ideal score of 116 and receiving high marks for extras-namely pizza toppings, new product offerings and special deals like the current 555 Deal, where customers can order three medium one-topping pizzas for $5 each.
"Satisfying our customers with a hot, fresh, great-tasting pizza delivered to their door is what Domino's is all about," said David A. Brandon, Chairman and CEO of Domino's Pizza.
