Pizza chain Domino’s has revealed its stores across Australia and New Zealand have donated more than 100,000 pizzas to charities, individuals and businesses since 2020.

It’s all thanks to its national Feed the Knead program which allows individuals to nominate online someone doing it tough.

Local stores review the application and then provide a free pizza to those successful nominees.

Giving back to communities is a privilege

Domino’s Australia and New Zealand CEO David Burness said it is an honour to give back to local communities.  

“As someone who has been with the Domino’s business for more than 30 years,  previously owning multiple stores on the Sunshine Coast, when I reflect on my time in stores I often find my proudest moments were when I was able to provide support  to someone in need, or lend a helping hand, through the offer of a safe, hot meal.

“It is a privilege to make a positive difference to the lives of those around you, and  it’s very humbling to be recognised for your generosity and willingness to go the extra mile,” he said.

“I’m incredibly proud of the community-focused mindset that is consistently demonstrated in Domino’s stores, and thank our franchisees, team members, and  pizza lovers across Australia for participating in the act of giving. 

“We know that pizza can’t solve all of the world’s problems, but it can bring a small  slice of joy to your day, and to us, this is what matters most.”  

Franchisees commit to more Domino’s pizza donations

Australian franchisees Nathan and Vanessa Quiring and Aiden Loy are the local owners and operators of 13 Domino’s stores from Woolgoolga, out to Inverell, Gunnedah and down to Port Macquarie.  

The franchisees have pledged to donate 25,000 pizzas this year, across all their stores.

Quiring said “This year, we are focused on building long term relationships in every area of the  community we work in. We wholeheartedly believe that this grassroots connection is  how we deliver our most impactful work.

“We know that 25,000 pizzas is a big number, but we also know that the communities in which we operate are extremely generous, and that giving back to them is the least we can do.”
