At Dominoes? Well, not the ones around here.  ;D

My point exactly.

Speaking of conveyors...

Klink, when you worked there, did they have conveyors? I'm thinking the age of the conveyor oven began in about the early 80s, which probably coincides with the explosion of chains such as Domino's. If so, when you put it all together, that also translates to the beginning of the age of pizza that requires absolutely no skill to make, along with big money guys screwing over the workers in every way possible.
No conveyors at any of the shops that I worked at. Deck ovens and screens. Oven tending was definitely a skilled job as well.

BTW, the shops that I worked at were in your neck of the woods. 4005 Livingston Ave., Reynoldsburg, Whitehall. I think that they were planing to install conveyor ovens at the South Campus shop, which at the time was the second busiest Domino's in the country, but AFAIK there were none in central Ohio that had conveyors back then.

The only way Domino's could impress me is if in select stores, they get rid of the conveyor ovens in favor of high-temp decks, train some capable people and actually take the trouble to make their own dough.  (I was going to say "WFO"... but couldn't stop laughing at the idea.)

Not likely to happen, as it would show up the rest of the chain's low standards.

They do a fine job being what they are.  A money-making machine, delivering cheap pizza conveniently.  The only reason people come to the store is so they don't have to tip the driver.  Putting on a show for those people is not going to make a difference.  Those are the cheap people.

Now if they actually made really good pizza, that would make a difference.
I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

If only they could do something about that chain store dough...

Then why do you suppose they are trying so hard to change their image? They're not doing it just for fun.

No chance of that happening, for a lot more reasons than that.

The makeover will probably hit hardest at the sit-down ones  in the more populated area stores..like malls, downtown areas,etc.

I don't think I've ever seen a Domino's with a dining area. I just assumed they were all delco units.

We have a few around here with 4 or 5 tables in them.

Don't think I've ever seen one in a food court, either. That's Sbarro turf.
