    AN AVALANCHE OF CHEESE pours into the test kitchen at the Denver headquarters of Leprino Foods, the mozzarella supplier to Pizza Hut, Domino's and Papa John's. First, thin wisps of low-moisture mozzarella, then a diced alternative, followed by an "artisanal" version, cut short and wide. Then come flavored cheeses made with a mozzarella base, as well as provolone, cheddar and Monterey Jack. Cooks bring out a take-and-bake pizza, a New York-style pie and a stuffed crust, fresh from nearly a dozen ovens. Another course features frozen food made with Leprino products, including ham-and-cheddar Hot Pockets, Stouffer's lasagna and Smart Ones...

    Aerial pizza delivery may sound futuristic but Domino's has been given the green light to test New Zealand pizza delivery via drones. The fast food chain has partnered with drone business Flirtey to launch the first commercial drone delivery service in the world, starting later this year. Domino's Group chief executive and managing director, Don Meij said the company had been investigating innovative and new delivery methods as business had grown. This included looking at robotic delivery, which the government is still considering. Details around where the trial would be held have been kept under wraps - however Domino's said...

    A Domino's driver saved the life of a regular customer after staff became worried because he didn't place an order for 11 days. Kirk Alexander suddenly stopped requesting regular pizza deliveries from his local shop in Salem, Oregon. Staff were particularly concerned when he missed his usual Saturday night slot. General manager Sarah Fuller said: "It was weird, and not like him at all." She immediately sent a delivery driver to Alexander's house to check on him. The employee found the television and lights on but there was no answer at the door – so Fuller called police. She said:...

    A group of Domino’s Pizza workers in Oregon helped save a man’s life over the weekend, police said. When the employees didn’t hear from one of their regular customers for several days, they sent one of their drivers, Tracey Hamblen, to check on him. According to KATU, the man didn’t answer the door, but the lights and television were on. That’s when Hamblen called 911. When deputies responded to the man’s home, they heard someone calling for help. They found the man on the ground and in need of medical attention. He’s now in stable condition. A manager said the...

    After Domino’s founder Tom Monaghan sold the pizza chain, he had a grander vision for his next project: a university and town built on Catholic beliefs. “There is not going to be any pornographic television in Ave Maria Town,” Monaghan said in 2004, in a speech on his vision for the Florida town. “If you go to the drug store and you want to buy the pill or the condoms or contraception, you won't be able to get that in Ave Maria Town.” While Monaghan retracted his statements, Ave Maria has grown into a religious-centric town like no other in...

    The final Obamacare regulation forcing restaurant chains to display calorie information is causing headaches for companies who say it is “impossible to comply” with the new rule. Domino’s Pizza, one of the regulation’s most outspoken critics, said the rule from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is vaguely written and carries the possibility of jail time. “Essentially we think this rule is a kind of disaster for everybody,” Lynn Liddle, executive vice president of Domino’s, told the Washington Free Beacon. “Not just pizza but restaurants, and anybody that’s going to fall within this law. It’s still not workable.” One problem, Liddle said,...

    It was Wednesday, they all said, and Chris should have been there. On any other Wednesday, Richard Yeager - known as "Chris" by virtually everyone who knew him - would have been seated at the table by the small stage in the back of GrandPre's on North Rampart Street for the bar's popular karaoke night, which he co-hosted for the last few years. Regular visitors would have had their names placed in the queue upon entrance, and would get their turns to select from the seemingly unending catalog of karaoke songs at Yeager's disposal. But this Wednesday, despite a packed...

    CHEYENNE, Wyo.

Cheyenne Domino's Pizza manager Andrew Ritchie told The Associated Press that he got a call about 10 p.m. Monday just as he was about to send employees home. Ritchie said the pilot told him he needed to feed 160 people — fast. [AP Content - excerpted]

    Domino’s Pizza has hired a creative agency called T + Biscuits to test the feasibility of octocopter drones that deliver a hot, delicious pizza to your doorstep. Heavily branded as the DomiCopter, the current prototype can deliver two, large pizzas in about ten minutes within a four mile radius of the store. While future versions could hypothetically use GPS coordinates to deliver the pie, the existing model is piloted from the ground by someone experienced in drone flight. Other names previously batted around for the DomiCopter included the Pepperdroney and the Flyin’ Hawaiian. The DomiCopter has eight spinning blades and...
