Domino’s Pizza in Andrews Breaks Records 12/04/13
December 4, 2013
Andrews - It’s not everyday that a world record is broken, especially not in the small city of Andrews. But that’s exactly what happened when Domino’s opened up their new shop in October. The store sold more pizzas in one week than any other store ever before.
This specific record focused on the amount of sales during the opening week. By day five, the Andrews location had already beat the record and had two days to go.
“They were astounded, they’ve never seen a store do that in one week,” said Domino’s Operating Partner Cassie Gerety.
The Domino’s in Andrews sold around eight thousand pizzas in one week, beating the previous record by more than 50 percent.
“It was nonstop it was awesome,” said the restaurant’s manager.
Records like this are generally held by large towns like Los Angeles or New York, so when a small city like Andrews beat out the big guys, corporate was impressed.
“They’re trying to figure out how a town of twelve thousand people beat the record of the largest military base in California,” said Gerety.
Domino’s business owners say the large number of sales is all thanks to the oil boom, and when traffic dies down management is positive they will still be the popular eating place in the city.
Gerety says they own a total of 11 dominos restaurants and will soon be opening their twelfth in Seminole where they say they will be attempting to break their own record then.
