As the Ball Drops, Sales Rise for Domino's Pizza
Domino's Pizza part of healthy New Year's diet resolutions
Ann Arbor, Mich., // PRNewswire // -- From New Year's Eve parties to New Year's Day football, Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ) continues to be a holiday tradition and Domino's pizza makers are ready to deliver.
New Year's Eve and New Year's Day rank in the top five busiest days for Domino's Pizza delivery in the United States. This year, on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, Domino's expects to sell approximately 1.8 million pizzas in the United States alone. To prepare for the rush, Domino's stores across the country are stocking up on ingredients and increasing staff to ensure the needs of every customer.
In addition to enjoying Domino's pizza as a holiday tradition, customers can now add the Domino's menu to their healthy diet New Year's resolutions. Domino's recently added a nutritional information website where customers can count calories with Domino's Cal-O-Meter, learn more about ingredients and allergen information and select from an array of calorie conscious lighter options.
"Pizza can be healthy! Domino's nutritional calculator, referred to as the Cal-O-Meter, gives customers the opportunity to build their own pizza and count the calories as items are added and deleted from their order," said Jenny Fouracre, Domino's Pizza spokesperson. "The website also lists several lighter options for customers to order if they don't wish to build their own pizza. All of these options are ideal for a New Year's resolution because customers can choose more vegetables, reduce the amount of the cheese and count every calorie of their order while enjoying a delicious meal. Customers will be surprised on how healthy it can really be."
