The company’s logo is a distinctive part of the business’ brand. The three dots ‘domino’ image comes from the founder’s idea that originally he would open three stores.
Domino’s HeatWave delivery bags, introduced into the UK in 2000, contain a patented disc that is pre-heated electrically. The company’s use of this innovation is used as a marketing tool in its cable and satellite TV advertising. Where is their head office? The company’s UK headquarters are at:Lasborough Road,Kingston,Milton Keynes. MK10 0AB. UK. When did the company start? The business was founded in the USA in 1960 by Tom Monaghan, who ran the business until retiring in 1998, when he sold the company for $1billion.
By using the concept of ‘franchising’ where other people are encouraged to invest money to open their own pizza store, Domino’s quickly expanded to the point where it is the world’s largest pizza delivery company and the eighth largest fast food brand. In 2002 there was a total of more than 7000 stores in 64 markets worldwide, employing over 250 000 staff and involving more than 2000 franchises. Domino’s started trading in the UK in 1985 with a store in Luton. In 2002 there were over 200 stores in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Who are its shareholders?
Domino’s Pizza UK & IRL plc is quoted on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange (symbol: DOM). Who are their major competitors? The UK pizza delivery and takeaway market consists of many small businesses and the big three firms: Perfect Pizza, with over 200 outlets, Pizza Hut which has 170 restaurants and also delivers and Domino’s. In Britain, pizzas are delivered by restaurants and a large range of outlets that also sell other food, like burgers and kebabs. It is estimated that there are as many as 4,000 pizza delivery companies. A look at a key feature of Domino’s business.
The Future Foundation Report (2003) was commissioned by Domino’s Pizza to analyse the social, economic, demographic and technological factors likely to impact on the UK pizza delivery and takeaway market for the remainder of this decade. The following are some of the key points raised by the report: Lack of time – the research shows that, on average, adults in the UK eat out and/or eat delivered/take-away meals around 80 times a year. The Foundation looks at the impact of freeing up time normally spent on preparing food at home, as ‘creating a time oasis’.
Higher levels of disposable income – real disposable household income is expected to increase by nearly 12% over the next five years resulting in more opportunity for expenditure on home delivered food. Demographic change – over a twenty to thirty year period, the numbers of older people will continue to increase. The research suggests that firms in the home delivery market can benefit from this by building and keeping brand loyalty amongst a generation of people who have grown up as pizza consumers and whose incomes and affluence are likely to grow.
In addition, there is expected to be a decline in the traditional family structure, which coupled with increasingly individualised tastes, will result in fewer ‘formal family meals’ at home. Leisure activities – the next decade will see more choice of a greater range of leisure activities. The research suggests that spending on home-delivered food and take-aways will continue increasing by 2. 5% a year on average during the next five years. Technology – In the short term, (the five years from the date of the report), more people will have access to interactive technologies, up from.
70% today to 90%, and the number of broadband users will rise. These people will become better at and more confident about e-commerce and buying food online. The report indicates that home food delivery firms already active in this area are likely to be especially successful. What is the company’s vision for growth? The company has a 20% share of the UK pizza delivery and takeaway market. This market was estimated to be worth nearly ? 450 million in 2000. At present, 20 percent of all pizzas consumed are delivered. This figure is expected to increase to 40 percent.
Home delivery now makes up 70% of the total take-away and home delivered food sector, up from 62% in 1997. The Future Foundations report (see ‘The Business’ section of this case study) estimates that the UK’s home delivery pizza market will more than double by 2010 to approximately ? 800 million. Domino’s believe that their business model and brand strength place them well to exploit this growth. Fast growth in franchised stores is planned, coupled with more aggressive marketing including terrestrial TV advertising and local store initiatives What is their policy on ensuring best quality product?
Domino’s HeatWave delivery bags contain a patented disc that is pre-heated electrically. This innovation, combined with the bag’s 3M Thinsulate lining and water-repellent nylon exterior, keeps the pizza hot during delivery. Pizza packaging plays an important part in ensuring the quality of the product on which the success of the business is based. Retaining heat and dispersing steam are the chief features of Domino’s pizza packaging. Domino’s training and operations, including career development and store check activities, through its ‘Flawless Executions’ department, is another important element of the company’s quality management.
Packaging and the environment is clearly also a concern of Domino’s. They state that more than 80% of the corrugated board used in their pizza boxes is made from recycled paper. The remainder is sourced from sustainable forests. The company encourages its customers to recycle their box packaging. The packaging for a pizza plays an important part in the marketing of the business: it carries the company’s distinctive logo, and it also carries the product on which the success of the business is based. Protecting the product, retaining heat and dispersing steam are the chief functional features of Domino’s pizza packaging.
What sort of people work for the firm? Think about the type of person who wants to become a Domino’s franchisee. What qualities do you think potential franchisees should have? What are the risks and what are the potential benefits? Do they have an equal opportunities policy? Yes. Domino’s Pizza state that they are committed to the development of positive policies to promote equality of opportunity in employment. They aim to ensure that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of sex, marital status, race, colour, creed, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, age or disability.
By how much has their workforce grown over recent years? In both 2001 and 2002 Domino’s opened more than 225 new stores. Running each store takes a team of about 25 people. Team member numbers should therefore have risen significantly over this period. How are their employees motivated? Employees (or team members, as Domino’s term them) are motivated and trained to offer high standards of customer service. Franchisees and their staff teams have access to training programmes and can attend corporate events in the UK and abroad.
An awards system operates and some Domino’s team members go on to buy their own franchise. It costs a fee of around ? 160 000 for the right to open your own Domino’s Pizza store. This sum buys a fully-fitted store and enables the franchisee to use the company brand image, ingredients, recipes, marketing materials and packaging. The company does offer a finance service for franchisees. Can I have some information about product development? The company has developed or invented many of the systems and pieces of equipment that are now used as standard by the industry.
Examples of these include: * Domino’s HeatWave delivery bags, introduced into the UK in 2000, contain a patented disc that is pre-heated electrically. This innovation, combined with the bag’s 3M Thinsulate lining and water-repellent nylon exterior, keeps the pizza hot during delivery. * Nationwide service system through Internet and interactive TV ordering. What is their brand positioning? Domino’s calculate that their brand awareness is 81% and that this is partly as a result of their sponsorship of ‘The Simpson’s’, and also their marketing of the launch of their HeatWave heated delivery system.
Can you give me some information about a recent marketing campaign? Domino’s nationwide service system through Internet and interactive TV ordering is beginning to show results, with its e-commerce net sales increasing by over 25% in the six months to July 2002, totalling ? 1. 9 million. The company believe that their continued sponsorship of ‘The Simpson’s’ on the Sky TV service and increased advertising on cable and satellite channels gives them an unchallenged position at the forefront of delivered food by e-commerce.
