ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, is giving college basketball fans a special deal as they cheer on their favorite teams the first week of the monthlong tournament games. Domino's is offering 50 percent off all menu-priced pizza orders placed online for an entire week, beginning today and running through Sunday, March 22.
"We're excited to let customers enjoy any combination of pizza at half off as they cheer on their teams," said Jenny Fouracre, Domino's spokesperson. "Domino's offers a variety of convenient digital ordering channels, so customers will never have to miss a second of any game when they order online."
College basketball's tournament month is a busy time for Domino's, especially near the end of it. Domino's sold more than 1.7 million pizzas during the 2014 semifinals and championship game nights combined – enough to give 25 pizzas to each person walking into the stadium at the final games in Indianapolis this year.
"College basketball players aren't the only ones preparing for the big games," Fouracre said. "While teams across the U.S. compete for a spot in the finals, Domino's team members are putting on their game faces and gearing up for their own big delivery days."
The 50 percent off deal is only available on menu-priced pizzas ordered through Domino's digital ordering channels, which include Domino's website (www.dominos.com), Domino's mobile website and the iPad®, iPhone®, Android™, Windows Phone 8 and Kindle Fire® apps.
