Domino’s Pizza

Domino is a game that uses square pieces, called dominoes, which have a number showing on one side and are blank or identically patterned on the other. Each player plays a domino in turn and the aim is to build up a chain of dominoes that extends to one end or the other. The last domino to be played is said to “stitch up the ends.”

When used as a metaphor, the word domino often refers to events that occur in sequence and are linked by causality or coincidence, such as a falling row of dominoes or the chain reaction caused by a single drop of a domino. It may also be applied to a group of similar or related things, such as a series of books or other literary works that follow on from each other in the same way.

In the past, dominoes were often made of bone, silver lip ocean pearl oyster shell (mother of pearl), ivory, or a dark wood such as ebony. They may have a painted or inlaid design on the domino’s face, as well as a pattern of black or white dots called pips that are typically arranged to match those of a die. These days, dominoes are usually made of a polymer material, but in the past they were frequently manufactured from more natural materials.

The first known manual written about domino was Xuan He Pai Pu >> (Manual of the Xuanhe Period), an ancient Chinese book from the 14th century, though some scholars consider it to be a forgery. It contains several rules for domino games and gives some history of the early development of the game.

Today, Domino’s success is due in large part to its focus on technology and innovation. Its use of new ways for customers to order their pizzas has helped the company remain a leader in the fast-food industry. Domino’s is also known for its strong culture and core values, including a dedication to listening to employees and customers.

Domino’s has been in operation since 1984, and the company has over 25,000 locations worldwide. Domino’s offers a variety of different products, from sandwiches and pastas to pizzas and appetizers. Its restaurants are known for their modern decor and fast, efficient service.

In addition to offering delivery and takeout, Domino’s has a growing presence online. Its website features an app that allows users to order and pay for pizza through their smartphone or tablet. Customers can even track their delivery through GPS to see when it’s expected to arrive.

Domino’s also has an extensive educational program that focuses on the mathematical concepts of commutative property and addition. Teachers can use dominoes in the classroom to help students understand how the total number of dots on a domino is not dependent on the way that the numbers are oriented or written down. The activity is particularly appropriate for younger students who are bridging the gap between using moveable manipulatives such as cubes and using only symbolic representations such as numerals and equations.
