Pittsburgh Domino's Pizza Franchise Owner Reaps National Accolade

Local business owner goes from delivery driver to award-winning Domino's franchise owner.

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 14, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Ammar Jali has come a long way since beginning his career as a delivery driver in 1991. The local business owner purchased his first Domino's Pizza store in 1994 - just three years after joining the company as a driver. Today, Jali owns 25 Domino's Pizza stores located in Pennsylvania and New York and was recently awarded the esteemed International Franchise Association Gold Franny Award for operational excellence. The award was celebrated at a recent Domino's Pizza awards ceremony held in London.

Jali graduated with an electrical engineering degree with a concentration in fiber optics from the New York Institute of Technology, but always had the dream of owning a Domino's Pizza in the back of his mind. When he joined Domino's, he knew one day his dream would come true. Today, he continues to grow his business and connect with the Pittsburgh and New York communities in which his businesses are located.

"Domino's has delivered, to me and my family, the dream of now owning and operating my own business," said Jali. "Domino's truly provides a fantastic opportunity to those who show initiative and a desire to advance."

The Gold Franny Award is the most prestigious honor bestowed on a Domino's Pizza franchise owner. Jali earned this award as part of an elite group within nearly 1,100 franchise owners in the United States. The awards are based on several key factors including operational audit scores, community involvement, store safety & security and team member morale.

The Gold Franny Awards were created more than 20 years ago by the International Franchise Association and designed to honor excellence among franchise owners.

"Ammar's personal commitment, leadership and determination to grow his franchise made him tremendously successful in 2012," said Scott Hinshaw, Domino's executive vice president of franchise operations and development. "The idea of beginning as a driver and working your way toward fulfilling the dream of becoming an award-winning franchise owner is what Domino's is all about. In fact, 90% of Domino's franchise owners in the U.S. started as drivers or pizza makers."
