Domino's launches Partners Foundation to support colleagues in need

Domino's Pizza Group, the UK-based master franchise of the international fast food pizza delivery chain, has launched the Domino's Partners Foundation to provide financial support to colleagues in need.

The UK & Ireland Domino's Partners Foundation will support anyone within the business who is experiencing personal hardship, both through the Covid-19 outbreak and in the longer term.

The foundation will initially be funded by a donation of £250,000 from Domino's Pizza Group and will provide financial assistance to permanent colleagues of the group and its franchisees.

The fund can be accessed by Domino's employees in times of hardship or adversity, for instance bereavement, exceptional medical needs or household emergencies. It will be overseen by a group of trustees made up of franchisees and Domino's employees.

Domino's board members, including chief executive designate Dominic Paul and recently appointed chairman Matt Shattock, will donate 20% of their net salaries to the fund for the next three months.

Non-executive director Usman Nabi has pledged a contribution of £100,000 on behalf of hedge fund Browning West. The group said many Domino's Pizza Group colleagues have also expressed an interest in contributing to the fund via payroll.

Paul said: "Since arriving at Domino's, I've been hugely impressed with the hard work and dedication of our colleagues. From pizza chefs and delivery drivers to the production, warehouse and distribution teams – everyone plays an important part in the national effort by feeding our communities and delivering Domino's £4m pizza giveaway for key workers.

"We're proud to donate £250,000 to launch the Partners Foundation to help support our people through unexpected hardship during these challenging times and beyond."
