The New Domino's Arrives

Bruce Horowitz writes in USA Today that Domino's Pizza is changing its pizza recipe. It will be a completely new pizza with a different crust, cheese, and sauce.

Some observers say that the company is taking a big risk with such a total overhaul of its main product. However, in a 2009 consumer survey, Domino's tied for last place for taste. Domino's was voted the best for convenience and price.

This change is not something that Domino's took lightly. They spent two years testing many different recipes before settling on the new Domino's Pizza.

The company will have an advertising campaign to launch the change that should have spread to all its restaurants by December 27, 2009. After that, look for the company to put out new ads proudly telling the public about the change. The author says that Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest day for pizza sales and that Domino's “may buy an ad in the big game.”

Everyone has his or her own preferences when it comes to food. It will be interesting to see how well the new Domino's Pizza is received by those who consider pizza to be an important part of their diets.
