Domino's Pizza Pays Homage to Wisconsin, Introduces The Wisconsin 6 Cheese Specialty Pizza
MADISON, Wis., Oct 18, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
MADISON, Wis., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ --Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, has introduced a brand new pizza to its American Legends(R) specialty pizza line that is sure to be a hit for "cheeseheads" across its namesake state. The Wisconsin 6 Cheese, available in Domino's stores across the country, has 82 percent more cheese than a large traditional pepperoni pizza - something all Wisconsinites can appreciate!
Domino's wants everyone in The Wisconsin 6 Cheese pizza's home state to try it, and will hold a Domino's Dairy Appreciation event on Wisconsin Avenue in Madison to spread the word. On Tuesday, Oct. 19, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., local dairy farmers will join Domino's Pizza on the 200 block of Wisconsin Avenue, just outside the Capitol building. Free samples of The Wisconsin 6 Cheese will be available for passers-by to taste.
"With more than 1,400 employees working across more than 70 independently owned stores throughout Wisconsin, Domino's Pizza has a presence here that we want to shout from the rooftops," said Meredith Baker, marketing leader for Domino's Pizza stores in Wisconsin. "We're headed to Wisconsin Avenue in Madison to make sure people here are as proud of The Wisconsin 6 Cheese as we are, and we hope to have many locals on hand to give it a try."
Fellow "cheeseheads" will not be disappointed - The Wisconsin 6 Cheese is topped with six flavorful cheeses including mozzarella, feta, provolone, cheddar, Parmesan and Asiago, all on a Parmesan and Asiago crust sprinkled with oregano.
Local government officials at the Capitol building have been invited to take a lunch break and try the first expansion of the Domino's Pizza American Legends specialty pizza line, and the first new product launched in 2010.
Wisconsin is also in the limelight thanks to Domino's Pizza's latest unique national advertising campaign. Shot on location at Truttmann Dairy in Blanchardville, the campaign demonstrates that there is only one place that quality Domino's Pizza cheese truly comes from - America's dairy farms.
The spot features real consumers in Wisconsin who believe they are attending a focus group. The consumers are shocked when the "office building" walls they are sitting within collapse, revealing they are actually in the middle of a dairy farm - proving the point that when combined with ingredients from trustworthy growers on handmade pizzas, 100 percent real cheese from America's dairies is a critical component to Domino's Pizza quality.
