Top Award for Domino's Franchise Team Member
Running a pizza franchise is no picnic, but Domino's operations team member Daniel Murray has it sliced down to the
perfect art - and is there to lend a helping hand.
Murray has just been named the inaugural Domino's Franchise Operations Team Member of the Year in the Domino's Pizza
Australia and New Zealand Rally Awards 2012, taking out competition from both Australia and New Zealand for the top
The award is given out to the team member who has achieved the best and most consistent results in their region
throughout the past 12 months.
He is delighted with the win, which reflects his hard work ethic and commitment to the job.
"I wake up every day excited at the thought of going into work and when I'm there, I work with a bunch of the best
colleagues you can possibly ask for. I really want to thank them for their support, without which I wouldn't have got to
where I am today. I know it's a cliché, but I really feel like we are one big family at Domino's, and I am committed to
my career with the company."
Domino's chief executive officer Don Meij says that the operations team plays a vital role to all franchisees in the
region, who often turn to them for help answering curly questions.
"The operations team is really there to mentor and support franchisees in our regions, to answer questions and help them
with any aspects of Domino's culture that they don't understand. It is a hard job, and one that doesn't often get
acknowledged, which is why we are so pleased to be able to select Daniel for the honour of receiving our very first
Franchise Operations Team Member of the Year award. We hope this will help inspire others in the team to get to the same
professional standard set by Daniel."
The Domino's Rally, which was held in Brisbane this week, is a special celebration for Domino's employees and aims to
boost team spirit and reward the success of outstanding team members across the entire Domino's family, while
encouraging others to aspire to the same standard of extraordinary sales and operational care.
