At the age of 4, Tom Monaghan’s father died. Not soon enough after his father’s death, he was sent to a Catholic orphanage. After his School, Tom signed up or a College in Michigan. He was unable to pay the fee for his tuition, hence he and his brother were looking out to begin a small business. In the year 1960, they purchased Pizzeria shop “DomiNick” for $900.00 on loan.
2) Sold his Car to become sole owner
Finally after some time in order to become the sole owner, Tom traded his own Volkswagen Car and became Business Owner.
3) Real name was “DomiNick”
Tom was fresh in Restaurant world, hence was lacking experience in Pizzeria business. But soon he purchased 2 more Pizzeria outlets to increase his business. The previous owner did not want Tom to continue with DomiNick, hence he was advised by one Delivery Guy to change it and instead use Domino’s, and since then this name got coined.
