Question of the Day

Oct 12, 2017

Yesterday, we asked: Domino’s Pizza was co-founded by brothers Tom and James Monaghan, who bought an existing pizzeria called DomiNick’s in 1960. Eight months into it, Tom took over control of the business because James didn’t want to quit his job as what?

Answer: A mailman. James traded his half of the business to Tom for an old Volkswagen Beetle that had been used to make deliveries. Tom sold Domino’s in 1998 to Bain Capital for an estimated $1 billion.

Congrats to Dave Royse, first to tweet the correct answer, just ahead of Mark Harper. (Special shout-outs to David Daniel and Dan Rosenbaum for the 30-minutes-or-less delivery jokes.)

Your question of the day for today is…According to a recent study, you might be a psychopath if you’re a huge fan of what Eminem song?
