ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ) therecognized world leader in pizza delivery, is updating its revolutionary Domino's Tracker with a new experience exclusive to customers who order Domino's Handmade Pan Pizza.
Domino's Tracker, which has delighted customers since 2008, already features a host of themes that allow customers to track their orders along with the sweet sounds of paradise, the excitement of a baseball game, or the insane awesomeness of a hair metal band.
Starting this week, customers who order a Handmade Pan Pizza will get to experience a new theme, following along with their order's progress while "D.J. Slow Pans" introduces some slow jam music and narrates a pair of videos showing why Domino's Handmade Pan Pizza needs a little extra time to be so delicious.
This is the first time Domino's Tracker has featured video embedded in the tracker.
"We recently showed pizza lovers why, for the first time in our history, we were saying 'slow down' when it comes to our Handmade Pan Pizza," said Chris Brandon, Domino's Pizza spokesperson. "This new Domino's Tracker theme illustrates the process in a fun way that we think our customers will really dig."
In this unique theme, the "Prep" and "Bake" stages have been renamed to "Slower Prep" and "Slower Bake." An enhanced Facebook sharing feature will also allow customers' Facebook friends to visit www.dominos.com to order a Handmade Pan Pizza right from their status update.
Domino's Tracker, which already allowed customers to leave feedback for their store during the process, will also now feature a Yelp® button directly on the Domino's Tracker page, further illustrating the company's commitment to listening to what its customers want.
