It's No Trick ... Domino's Delivers a Slice of Brooklyn
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct 25, 2006 /PRNewswire via COMTEX News Network/ -- Just in time for Halloween -- when Domino's (NYSE: DPZ) expects to sell one million pizzas in a single day -- the world leader in pizza delivery is launching its newest creation, Brooklyn Style Pizza.
The new Brooklyn Style Pizza is crafted with Domino's signature, hand- tossed dough stretched thin and cut into 6 big, foldable slices. The pizza includes a blend of mozzarella and provolone cheeses and a choice of new extra large Brooklyn-style sausage or pepperoni. Available in select markets beginning this week and nationwide on October 30, customers can receive a large Brooklyn Style Pizza for just $9.99. For just $2 more, customers can upgrade to an extra large.
"Brooklyn is known for its great people, friendly neighborhoods and, of course, delicious pizza," said Ken Calwell, Domino's Pizza chief marketing officer. "We want to deliver the unique taste of Brooklyn to our customers by offering them something they'd otherwise need to travel to New York to enjoy. We call it delivering the old neighborhood to your neighborhood."
Traditionally, Halloween ranks as one of the top five busiest "holidays" for pizza delivery in the United States. Other top days for Domino's are Super Bowl Sunday, Thanksgiving Eve, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
"This Halloween, we're inviting America to order a new Brooklyn Style Pizza from Domino's as they're putting the final touches on their costumes before heading out to trick-or-treat," said Calwell.
