DOMINO'S PIZZA OPENS MOBILE UNIT AT HOMESTEAD, FLA., CITY HALL; UNIT HELPING RELIEF EFFORT WITH UP TO 2,500 PIZZAS PER DAY

 DOMINO'S PIZZA OPENS MOBILE UNIT AT HOMESTEAD, FLA., CITY HALL;
 UNIT HELPING RELIEF EFFORT WITH UP TO 2,500 PIZZAS PER DAY
 HOMESTEAD, Fla., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's Pizza, in an effort to assist with the Hurricane Andrew relief effort, has opened a mobile trailer on the site of the Homestead City Hall. The unit can bake and distribute 2,500 pizzas per day to the homeless, National Guard and community volunteers. Wednesday, Sept. 2, the unit distributed more than 2,100 pizzas.
 The original arrangement set up with the Homestead mayor's office called for Domino's mobile unit to stay on site for only a day or two. But local employees felt the need was so great that they got creative and devised a way to stay a day or two longer. Anyone who is not homeless or destitute is asked to pay $2 for their pizza and help pay for additional supplies.
 "We ended up selling only 126 of the 2,143 pizzas distributed," said Mike Jenkins, Domino's national director of public relations. "But every little bit allows our Florida operators to stay that much longer to help the homeless.
 "Their real problem is that some of their employees are still missing and they lost 20 Domino's Pizza stores to Hurricane Andrew themselves. It's going to be quite a while before they can be up and running again."
 Jenkins added that the Domino's Pizza Partners Foundation, which assists Domino's Pizza "family" members in times of crisis, has also geared up to aid hurricane victims.
 Corporate employees and franchisees are assisting with collection of supplies for the relief effort, too. A good example of how everyone at Domino's is pulling together is a joint program put together by Mike Orcutt, franchisee in Atlanta, Domino's Pizza Atlanta office employees, the Atlanta-area Domino's Pizza commissary, and Ryder Truck Rental to collect and haul bottled water, toiletries and canned food to the Atlanta Red Cross for shipment to Florida.
 "We'll continue to help out wherever we can," said Jenkins. "These are our neighbors, friends, families and customers.
