A year later, Tom traded his brother a Volkswagon Beetle for his half of the company and renamed it "Domino's"

Domino's delivered 400 million pizzas last year, which is a pizza (and a slice) for every man, woman and child in the United States This multimillion dollar company's reputation of great food and service was single handedly tainted by... A Look Into the Crisis On April 13, 2009 a video was posted on the popular social media website YouTube displaying Domino's employee 31 year old Kristy Hammonds filming her coworker 32 Michael Setzer doing disgusting things to the food
The restaurant was located in Conover, NC
After just 2 days on YouTube, the video reached over 1 million views. Domino's Fights Back Immediately fired both of the workers
The restaurant was closed down immediately for sanitation
It took Domino's 2 or 3 days you respond to the video
President of the company Patrick Doyle posted a response on YouTube telling the public that the actions of the two individuals do not represent the entire company
Domino's also created a Twitter account to answer questions from concerned consumers and posted a company appology on their website Hammonds
and Setzer claim that
the video was a prank and
the food was never distributed. Immediately after the incident they were arrested and tried for felony distribution of prohibited food Type of Crisis Stakeholders Analysis of Response How did this effect Domino's?
