Domino’s franchisees have stepped up in support of Aussies in need and the network’s most giving stores have been revealed.
The pizza chain has recorded a milestone 200,000 pizzas donated through the company’s Feed the Knead program.
Established in 2020, the Feed the Knead program invites people to nominate those who may need some extra assistance during times of hardship.
The top three outlets between them have donated 14,600 pizzas over the last three years. In the top slot Sunshine Coast’s Warana store has donated 5,761 pizzas; a close second is the Palm Beach outlet which gave away 5,743 pizzas; and Lilydale’s store handed out 3,096.
Domino’s Warana franchisees Andrew Wood and Skye Youd said supporting the local community is very rewarding.
Wood said “We’ve witnessed the impact of what providing free, hot and fresh meals to individuals facing hardships can do, particularly during this challenging period of rising living expenses. For many, it can make all the difference between feeding their families or paying rent.”
Domino’s ANZ CEO Don Meij expressed his gratitude for the ongoing community support behind the program.
“When we launched our Feed the Knead program, we were deeply moved by the way communities banded together to nominate those in need; a local effort with national impact that makes a difference, one slice at a time,” Meij said.
“The simple gesture of providing a hot meal to someone in need can change the trajectory of a day, week or year for those facing challenging circumstances, especially in cases where access to food may be limited.
“I would like to express my sincerest thanks to our Domino’s franchisee partners, dedicated team members and pizza enthusiasts across Australia and New Zealand for actively participating in this initiative and contributing to our purpose of bringing people close through pizza.”
