Dominos came from humble beginnings in 1960, with just one store in Michigan, USA. Now, as the largest pizza company in the world, Domino`s proudly continues its legacy of delivering great-tasting pizza to customers` doors.

Since then, the rise of several other competitors such as ‘Pizza Hut and Papa John’s’ have left their mark within the fast-food retail chain industry with the sales worth approximately £3.4 billion in the UK.

Whilst considering the issue at hand, Dominio’s senior management devised a strategy to manage its brand reputation and stay relevant by making appropriate changes to their delivery service introducing ‘Driverless delivery and e-bikes to optimise the delivery process’ in the hopes for a successful change management implementation to drives sales. However, delivery drivers at Dominio’s are left vulnerable due to the drastic changes implemented by head office.

Your role as a business trainee manager at Dominos’ is to present a report and share it with your colleagues to support the wider management team.
