Domino’s sponsored my airfare, hotel, and food, but this article is all my opinions.
My Day At Headquarters:
When we got to the Domino’s Headquarters, we were greeted with such hospitality! The building is gorgeous and so huge, but the one thing I saw through out was how much Domino’s cares for their staff, and that customer service is their #1 priority. We were given a tour of the building, and I saw so many amazing things…let me show you!

Do you see all the different boxes that have been made, now I’m too young to remember the 1960-1980 boxes, but I sure do remember all the boxes after 1980! So cool, right? Guess what in 1960 Tom Monaghan and brother, James, purchase “DomiNick’s,” a pizza store in Ypsilanti, Mich. Monaghan borrowed $500 to buy the store. So Domino’s was started for $500. Wish it was that easy nowadays!
