PITTSBURGH, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Practice, training and preparation for this past weekend didn't just take place on the football field, as Domino's Pizza stores in Pittsburgh took on their biggest day of the year.
As the San Francisco and Baltimore football teams battled it out on the field on the biggest Sunday of the season, Domino's stores in Pittsburgh hustled to deliver nearly 48,000 pizza slices Sunday.
"Game day Sunday was a big day for us in Pittsburgh," said Ammar Jali, Domino's Pizza franchise owner in Pittsburgh. "There are few occasions better than this one for us to deliver pizza, wings and other Domino's favorites to gatherings across Pittsburgh – and our team was certainly prepared and ready to deliver a great game day meal to all of our customers and fans on Sunday."
One of the convenient ways fans and customers ordered on game day from Domino's was via digital ordering – whether it was online or through an app on their mobile device. On Sunday, helped by features such as timed ordering and Domino's Tracker®, Pittsburgh Domino's stores saw nearly 45 percent of orders come in through Domino's digital ordering on Sunday.
"Domino's digital ordering options continue to set the bar for convenience and outstanding ordering experience," said Jali. "We're excited to know Pittsburgh customers chose Domino's online ordering to be part of their game day experience."
