Domino’s Pizza, the pizza delivery expert, has been crowned the country’s top pizza delivery chain by the Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food Association (PAPA). The prestigious PAPA awards recognise the industry’s leading takeaways, restaurants and suppliers.
The Pizza Delivery Chain of the Year award recognises operators who are successfully driving the delivery and takeaway sector. It is open to companies with more than five stores, and acknowledges the highest standards in overall operation, ranging from customer service and food quality to delivery to the customer and new product development. In addition, the award also seeks to find pizza delivery businesses that are positively driving the market.
Domino’s Pizza was presented the award, based on its continued impressive growth, ambitious future plans and relentless focus on the highest quality, fresh ingredients and best possible customer service.
Andy Hirst, head of franchise development at Domino’s, said: “We are delighted to have been crowned pizza delivery chain of the year. This is a fantastic achievement, which is made even more special as we’re celebrating our 25th anniversary this year. The current climate has created tough times for many in the industry, but we’ve always stuck to our guns and made sure we deliver not only the tastiest, highest quality pizzas to our customers but also great service too. This award is testament to the ongoing hard work and dedication of the entire Domino’s team.”
