    Domino's Predominantly Franchise System

    Domino�s should go to a predominantly franchise system only. Most of the corporate stores are the worst run stores. The operators are only vested a small percentage of the positive return. The manager I see every Friday night (and is an exception to the worst run) told me his brother ran the same store at the same volume 20 years ago and made more money in the 80�s than he does now. Big brother is a franchisee now and is the only reason little bro's stuck around. What concerns me about the system is, the corporate management guys are doing everything they can to keep this guy from being able to franchise and it�s the cleanest store I�ve seen in the five states I travel. Quite an impressive guy, I wish he was in sales, I�d give him a job! I love the kids at MY Domino's. I feel for them after the stories I hear about cut backs made after selling to Bain Capital and going public. On the other hand the franchise stores I visit (I always ask) are run by well taken care of people. You can tell by the smile you get when they take your order. Corporate stores, no smiles, it�s like you�re a pain. I can�t stand the Hut or Papas, but I�ll find a local place I like eventually.
