Domino’s Pizza sees 140,000 Android app downloads since launchBy
In addition to an Android app, Domino’s also offers consumers an iPhone application where they can place orders for their favorite meals. According to the company, it now offers its mobile ordering app to more than 80 percent of smartphones on the U.S. market.
“We listened to people, and realized they wanted more ways to order from Domino’s,” said Chris Brandon, a spokesman for Domino’s.
“After the launch of our iPhone App, we realized that we had reached many people – but knew that until we released the Android App, too many people were missing out on this convenient option,” he said.
“We are glad so many Android users have responded and are downloading the app.”
As of the fourth quarter of 2011, through its primarily locally-owned and operated franchised system, Domino’s operated a network of 9,742 franchised and company-owned stores in the United States and over 70 international markets.

Mobile ordering is all the rage now and consumers increasingly turn to their mobile devices to make purchases – both big and small.

“Android is not only a good platform, but a necessary one in wanting as many people as possible to get the experience of using the Domino’s app,” Mr. Brandon said.
“We now cover more than 80 percent of smartphone users,” he said.
