Domino's Close All Stores For 'Game Changing' Initiative

Domino's Close All Stores To Train For 'Game Changing' Initiative

Domino's is cooking up a storm so big they need to close all stores across New Zealand for one hour on Saturday 9 March for specialised training.

The initiative, set to be a 'game changer' in the New Zealand pizza industry, is scheduled to launch on Monday 11 March.

Domino's CEO, Don Meij, says the move is the first step in the making of something big.

"What we are planning and training for is the biggest initiative we've launched in years and in order for us to meet this challenge, set the bar high and get it right - this closure needs to take place," says Meij.

"Customers have told us they want more from us, and we've listened. In order to deliver on this we are committed to closing all stores across New Zealand on Saturday 9 March and prove to our customers we are serious about providing the best quality, service and standards in all our stores.

"Let's just say, all will be revealed in the coming weeks," says Meij.

Domino's New Zealand General Manager, Josh Kilimnik, confirmed this was a big move for the New Zealand pizza franchise.

"Considering a lot of our stores are open on Christmas Day, New Year's Day and all public holidays throughout the year, this is a huge move for us, but one we are confident will help us reconnect with our customers as we continue to reinvigorate the way we sell and make pizzas," says Kilimnik.

"During the closure the primary focus will be on improving the quality of our products, all aspects of the customer service experience and our overall image because it's important we set the bar high and not rest on our laurels.

"We are constantly listening to our customers and helping to prepare our staff for what is coming - which is set to revolutionise the New Zealand pizza industry," says Kilimnik.

All Domino's stores across New Zealand will be closed between 10am-11am on Saturday 9 March to implement these new initiatives.
