What do the three white dots on the Domino’s Pizza logo represent?
3 original stores
Answer: Happy National Pizza Day! In 1960, Tom Monaghan and his brother, James, purchased his first small pizza store in Ypsilanti, Michigan. By 1965, they had purchased two additional pizzerias; and now had a total of three locations in the same county. The Domino’s company logo originally had three dots, representing those three stores in 1965. Monaghan planned to add a new dot with the addition of every new store, but this idea quickly faded, as Domino’s experienced rapid growth. Domino’s is now located in 82 countries, making it the second-largest franchised pizza chain after Pizza Hut.
