Team members from the Domino’s Pizza head office and from the store in Oxley Park visited the retirement village in Shenley Wood this week.

While there they spoke to residents about the Company and give them a pizza making demonstration.

Firstly, the residents were shown a video on the history of Domino’s, which was then followed by the pizza making demonstration. A couple of residents were then invited to the stage to have a go at making their own pizzas.

The presentation was attended by in the region of 40 residents, who were all fascinated to learn about the Company and its background. At the end of the afternoon the residents were treated to some hot, fresh pizza delivered to the site by the local store in Oxley Park.

Brian Hobbs, resident and ExtraHope Chariman, said: “We were very excited to welcome the Domino’s team to the village. We often invite Company’s in to talk to us about different topics and when Domino’s expressed an interest in doing this we were more than happy to let them come along. It is a successful, well-known brand and I can see why after watching their demonstration today. I think we all learnt a lot and certainly enjoyed the fresh pizza delivered on site after the presentation – I think you can safely say there wasn’t a slice left in the building.”

Angie Lawence, PR Officer for Domino’s Pizza, said: “It is not our usual demographic, but we were delighted to hear that the retired residents were keen to learn more about Domino’s and of course taste the product. Menus and key rings were given out to all and a couple of the residents were invited on stage to have a go a making pizza – they had great fun, but could see that there is certainly a knack to it! As a brand we are passionate about being part of the local community and we hope to visit more of these sites around the country to ensure that this age bracket don’t miss out on our delicious product.”
