Oh Give Me A Home Where the Buffalo Roam - Domino's Blog Trip!


Okay, I promise, I'll stop singing now. Just pretend in your head that it sounded awesome okay? Yesterday, I was in Michigan, having a wonderful time with the team at Domino's headquarters in Ann Arbor. It wasn't anything like what I expected. From the moment we walked in the door, the environment was nothing but fun, warm and inviting. In fact, this is much the same feeling Domino's hopes to pass on to the customers they serve each and every day. I had a blast, met some amazing bloggers in person and even got to make my very own, shall we call it interesting, pizza. It is definitely harder than it looks.


My pizza. I'll let you guess what is on it!

What I was most impressed with was the overall openness of the whole company. While most companies try to hide the bad comments and publicity, Domino's welcomes it as an opportunity to learn and grow and to me, that says a lot. That and the fact that they have a totally awesome "man" couch complete with a fridge in their lobby. Throw in the always fun Pizza Tracker and that definitely escalates Domino's to the top of the FUN list. Speaking of the pizza tracker, if you are a fan, look for Pizza Pete who should be making a debut soon. He will have some fun surprises waiting for you while you track your pizza.

The one thing we heard with resounding certainty is that Domino's Pizza hears their customers loud and clear and are dedicated to creating the ultimate customer experience. Some companies may talk the talk, but Dominos' is walking that walk on a daily basis. Domino's Pizza CEO Patrick Doyle even stopped by to answer some of our questions and explain just how dedicated the company is to producing the best possible product out there. 


Thought tasting panels weren't real? Check out this booth from an actual sensory panel room at Domino's headquarters. How fun would it be to take part in one of the test panels? It's just one way the company is dedicated to producing quality products at a great value. 


Why in the world did I reference buffalo in the title of this post you ask? I know I am random people, but I at least always have a way to tie everything together, so give me a little credit. It turns out that Domino's headquarters is actually on a fully functional farm. Complete with a heard of buffalo, watusi cattle and even a petting zoo where parents and kids can stop by for some fun. See, I told you I hadn't lost it yet. Tune in tomorrow as I walk you step-by-step through the Domino's Michigan Supply Chain Center. I promise, you'll never look at pizza the same way again when I am done!
