From pizza delivery driver to Managing Director of Australia’s largest and first publicly-listed pizza chain – Domino’s Pizza, Don Meij has always held a deep passion for innovation and entrepreneurialism.
In 2014, under Don’s vision and leadership, Domino’s Australia launched a world first initiative, Pizza Mogul – a responsive website and mobile app allowing customers to: create their own pizza, identity and branding; share to their social networks; and earn a cut of every sale. Pizza Mogul has challenged not only the pizza industry, but the entire retail industry as a whole.
This was immediately followed by the introduction of GPS Driver Tracker technology in 2015 allowing customers to track pizza from the store to the door and then, in 2016, they launched DRU – an autonomous pizza delivery vehicle set to take the world by storm.
Don has won a number of industry awards including; Brisbane Lord Mayor’s Channel 7 Business Person of the Year Awards 2015, The Ernst & Young Australian Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2004, Australian Institute of Management (AIM) Professional Manager of the Year 2004 (QLD) and the 2002 QLD Retail Franchise.
Today, Domino’s is the market leader in Australia and New Zealand, with strong business in the France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan and German markets. With over 1900 stores to the Domino’s Pizza Enterprises, Don has never been so determined to continue the growth and success of the brand that has already come so far.
