Domino’s Pizza – Think Two Moves Ahead

Domino is an amazing name that keeps its bearer aware of opportunities that might not otherwise present themselves. From Latin dominus, this masculine and feminine given name conveys a sense of gravitas in every decision they make; its roots in ancient blocking games make this name even more effective at encouraging reflection rather than haste in decision-making processes.

The domino effect occurs when one event causes another that has far-reaching repercussions, like dropping your brush during an art project and having it cause ripple effects that compromise it all. This also applies to business: one bad customer experience could result in devastating ripples that damage reputation and limit future growth of an enterprise.

A domino is a flat rectangular block designed for finger or thumb play that features a line down its center to visually split into two parts, each bearing one to six spots known as pips that represent their value or rank or weight. The number of spots determines their value or rank while their combined ranks can show which tile is lighter or heavier overall.

Dominoes can be used to play many different kinds of games, including scoring and blocking games. Scoring games involve the player trying to empty his or her hand of dominoes before an opponent does; some scoring games resemble card games like Bergen and Muggins while others serve as learning tools for children’s number recognition and counting skills.

Most dominoes today are composed of polymer; however, some sets may also be constructed using natural materials like bone, silver lip ocean pearl oyster shell (mother of pearl), ivory and ebony with black or white pips inlaid or painted on each side. Historically speaking, European-style domino sets were often constructed out of more substantial materials and could become quite pricey.

Domino’s Pizza was established by Tom Monaghan in Ypsilanti, Michigan in 1967 and quickly experienced rapid expansion after offering delivery services and placing pizzerias near colleges where students wanted their food quickly after classes had ended. This strategy enabled Domino’s Pizza to withstand COVID-19 pandemic outbreak and thrive to this day.

Don Meij, CEO of Domino’s was featured on Undercover Boss where he took an undercover job in one of their busy restaurants to see how his employees dealt with difficult circumstances. By sticking to Domino’s core values and listening to both employees and customers – from leadership training and dress code reforms to college recruiting improvements – he managed to turn things around drastically at Domino’s and see an incredible turn around in customer service and sales for himself and the company as a whole.
