Dominos Farms Corporation
Domino's Farms Corporation
Like most corporate success stories, Domino's started out small - with just one store in Ypsilanti, MIchigan in 1960. However, in 1978 the 200th Domino's store opened, and things really began to cook. By 1983 there were 1,000 Domino's stores and 5,000 in 1989. Today, there are over 10,000 stores - including more that 5,000 outside the United States. Sure, it took more that 50 years to get here, but the trip was well worth it to be the recognized world leader in pizza delivery. We immerse ourselves in the towns and cities where we make and safely deliver pizzas every day, because we believe in giving back to the communities that support us. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, MI, Domino's is committed to supporting initatives and causes in its hometown while also participating in national programs that align with our company vision and guiding principles. We look forward to building on a heritage of delivering to our customers and communities in which we live and work.
Sustainable Business Practices
Dominos Farms Corporation has been recycling office paper throughout its 600,000 square foot complex for the last 12 years. In those 12 years, they have perfected their paper recycling program; over 80 tons of office paper is now recycled from the facility each year. Dominos Farms is continuing their effort to improve their current program. In order to increase exposure to recycling, they have replaced the old recycling containers with desk-side containers to make recycling easier for employees. Employees are also provided with a Recycling Update to inform them of up-coming changes and which items can and cannot be recycled through their current system. Last year a plastic recycling program was added. Approximately 20 to 30 pounds of plastic are collected each week! To continue their environmentally conscious efforts to conserve energy, Dominos Farm replaces all old-style lamps with more efficient T-8 energy efficient lamps, places external lights on timers, reduces temperatures when the building is unoccupied, and uses the right sizing motors and variable frequency drives. Also, inspections and regular maintenance of HVAC systems and plumbing fixtures avoids the unnecessary use of water and electricity.
