Domino's Pizza

Domino's Pizza is a nationwide chain with over 13,000 locations serving pizza. The site pizza.dominos.com has a location map.

The company traces it's history to 1960 when Tom and James Monaghan bought Domi-Nick's Pizza next to Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti for $75 and a $500 loan. Tom later bought out James for a Volkswagon Beetle.

The company began franchising in 1967. They crossed the 1,000 store mark and opened their first international store in 1983. The company introduced the Pan Pizza and opened their 5,000th store in 1989.

The chain has since grown to over 13,000 stores in 70 countries and all 50 states. They are still headquartered in Ypsilanti.

The founders sold 93% ownership of the the chain to Bain Capital for about $1 billion in 1998. The company had its IPO in 2004 with the symbol "DPZ."
