Domino's ($DPZ) is dominating; the Michigan-based pizza chain has managed to successfully scale and franchise its business from coast-to-coast, all while digitizing its processes in the last 20 years to make it a first mover, and a long-lasting, player in the casual dining space.
Shares are only up about 6% over the last 12 months, but Domino's stock is still hovering around all-time highs. When Domino's announces earnings results February 20, analysts tracked by Zacks Investment Research are looking for EPS $2.93.
Domino's stock is up nearly 57% since the timeframe on the above chart begins - and, ratings submitted into the Apple ($AAPL) Store shows this form of engagement has risen more than 293% for Domino's since 2018 began.
What's more - Domino's also earned more than 1.36 million ratings in the Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Play Store - its apps are rated at least a 4.7-out-of-5, in Google, and even higher, on Apple's platform.
In our next chart, we can see (above) that Domino's job postings appear to be rising ever-so-slightly over time, with the exceptions where the company appears to whittle down some roles. Still, from February 2019 - during a period when it posted fewer jobs - and this year, postings rose about 24%.
There's plenty of other data defining Domino's dominance - and some of it comes in the form of the failure of would-be competitors, like pizza startup Zume, which pivoted its way through millions in investors capital before giving up the ghost of becoming a robotic pizza delivery company, to instead focus on sustainable packaging.
