ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, along with families across the nation, is getting ready for the hustle of the holidays! The night before people enjoy a Thanksgiving Day feast with friends and family, many choose the convenience of fueling up on pizza - making Thanksgiving Eve one of the busiest nights of the year for Domino's.
Because so many will make this Wednesday night a family pizza night, Domino's will be delivering more than 1.1 million pizzas to homes across the country.
"As weary travelers roll into their destinations the night before turkey day, Domino's Pizza is making sure a delicious, hot meal for the family is only a few clicks or a phone call away," said Chris Brandon, Domino's Pizza spokesperson. "It's one of those days we circle on the calendar well in advance. Our stores stock up on ingredients and get plenty of delivery drivers ready to make sure we meet the needs of our hungry customers across the nation."
A day consumers have circled is the day after Thanksgiving - of course, to take advantage of big savings. From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, the big deals of the long weekend bring with them a bit of shopping madness. Domino's hopes to ease the insanity with its Feed the Shoppers Twitter giveaway.
Beginning today through Dec. 5, 2010, customers can enter to win a free meal in the form of a $15 Domino's Pizza gift card at twitter.com/dominos. To enter, consumers simply must follow @Dominos and tweet the phrase, "I'm entered to win a free meal from Domino's ($15). Follow @Dominos & RT to enter! #feedtheshoppers Rules: http://bit.ly/dpz_fts".
Domino's will give away 20 gift cards every day during the 2-week period.
"We want everybody to have a stress-free holiday shopping experience, which means giving them a break from the madness to enter to win some pizza on us," said Brandon. "Use the winnings for yourself when you don't feel like cooking after a long shopping marathon. Or better yet, use it as a gift to mark a name off your holiday shopping list."
