Two things that most people of all ages enjoy are parties and pizza. Declaring to be “the best pizza delivery company in the world,” Domino’s Pizza offers great pizza and other food that will add to the enjoyment of any celebration, while providing convenience for the hosts.
“We can handle orders for about 10 to 20 pizzas any time, meaning that delivery will be within an hour of the phone call,” says Domino’s franchise owner Dale Wills. “Larger group numbers, especially if we are talking about orders for over 100 people, should be called in a day or so in advance to ensure that the food will be there when it is needed.”
Since May is an eventful month with graduations, Mother’s Day and end-of-the-school-year events, Domino’s is kept even busier than ever. “At the end of the school year, lots of teachers like to hold pizza parties for their students,” says Dale. “The teachers generally call in their orders a day early. We offer special prices for schools, day care centers and churches. We also like to help out many nonprofit organizations.”
Two pizzas have just been introduced at Domino’s: the Brooklyn Style Pizza and the new Philly Cheese Steak Pizza. Brooklyn Style comes with Brooklyn sausage or pepperoni, while the Philly is loaded with steak and cheese. Domino’s is constantly innovative with their recipes to offer customers a broader selection than ever before.
Domino’s is definitely more than great pizza. Other food options include the signature Buffalo Chicken Kickers, cheesy bread, bread sticks, Buffalo wings and, for dessert, Cinna Stix®, bread that has been sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and topped with sweet, vanilla icing.
“I believe our excellent niche in the pizza industry is due to the quality of the food, good prices and good follow-through on deliveries,” says Dale.
Domino’s Pizza was founded in 1960, and Dale and Rosie Wills have been working with the company since 1985. “It is something we both enjoy doing,” says Dale. Both moved up within the company and became franchise owners in 1994. Today the Wills family owns five Domino’s Pizza franchises in the Tulsa area.
Domino’s Pizza delivers from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday. The current special is three 1-topping pizzas for $5 each. Wills reminds customers not to forget to order side items and drinks with their pizza. For more information or to order a pizza, contact the Domino’s Pizza nearest you.
