We felt that his positive can-do attitude and helpfulness towards customers deserved wider recognition, so Tom was nominated for the UK & Ireland Competition.
Tom made it through to the final 5 at the recent Awards Ceremony in Milton Keynes. Well done Tom! There certainly was some stiff competition.
Recently we attended the Domino's Pizza 50th Anniversary Celebrations in Las Vegas and amongst the souvenir items on sale was this replica of the original Domino's Pizza delivery vehicle, a VW Beetle.
The story goes that the first Domino's Pizza (then called Domi-Nick's) was opened on Dec 9th 1960 in Ypsilanti, Michigan, by Tom Monaghan and his brother.
After 6 months of tireless work, Tom's brother wanted out of the business, and as a 50% shareholder, all Tom was able to offer him was the store's beat-up old VW Beetle, which his brother gratefully accepted.
Nearly 40 years later, and with over 8,000 stores open Worldwide, Tom sold most of his stake in the business to Bain Capital for approx $1 billion. Not bad for half a Volkswagen Beetle!
So naturally we bought the car for Tom who is an avid model collector, mainly of steam trains! Keep up the great work!
