Domino?s Pizza is known for its pizza, but what is less known (and maybe a bit surprising) is that a big part of its success can be attributed to digital innovation. The company launched its first iOS app in 2011 and its first Android app in 2012. Since this time, the pizza chain?s stock price has increased by over 952% (versus 77% for YUM Brands, the owner of Pizza Hut; 432% for Papa Johns; and 75% for the S&P 500). Additionally, Domino?s Market Cap is currently $8.68 billion. To put this in perspective, it was about $902 million just six short years ago. That?s nearly $7.8 billion in value creation since Domino?s first brought its product offering to small screens worldwide!
