Domino’s Pizza company-owned and franchised stores throughout the US will donate roughly 10 million slices of pizza within their local communities, starting this week.
Domino’s is partnering with its franchisees as part of this national effort, so that hospitals and medical centers, school kids and their families, health departments, grocery store workers and others in need can enjoy their pizzas.
Domino’s franchisees, corporate managers and their local store employees know their neighborhoods best and will begin feeding the need they see around them this week by providing pizza to the people and organizations that are meaningful to their communities. All 6,126 stores nationwide are expected to be a part of this effort.
“We have a long history of feeding people during times of crisis and uncertainty. When we were looking at how we could help, we knew we could use the reach of our national brand to make a difference in thousands of local neighborhoods,” said Russell Weiner, Domino’s chief operating officer and president of the Americas. “We have franchisees and company-owned stores all over the country already doing amazing work in their communities and we know that by amplifying those efforts together we will be able to help even more people who are struggling right now.”
