Assignment 1: Making Decisions Based on Demand and Forecasting|

One of the international pizza delivery corporations having head quarter in Michigan is known as Domino’s Pizza, which was founded in the year 1960. Domino Pizza has gained a marvelous business all over the world including USA, UK and Spain too. Recently, is actively increasing and spreading its business and sale of its products across numerous geographic boundaries. In terms of product growth, Domino's continues to offer new products. Strong growth and profit margins and a relatively good competitive position make Domino's Pizza a tasty investment choice. Its shares are not cheap, but they still offer a good value and an opportunity to participate in Domino's profitable growth. The company has 22% of the domestic market for pizza delivery, 52%+ of its revenues coming from overseas, a well accepted brand, efficient supply chain distribution, and new product offerings. All this should help Domino's Pizza weather any inflationary or economic headwinds relatively well. I recommend investors to consider buying Domino's shares. In support of their investment, to celebrate Columbus Day, or just to satisfy their appetite for pizza, investors should also download Domino's app to their smart phones and try one (or more) of Domino's pies.
