Requiring a rapid way to grow their franchise development program, Domino’s turned to Innovative Modular Solutions (IMS) for answers. The goal: implement their new Pizza Theater design for its emerging restaurants and have them operational faster than a conventional build. Partnering with Whitley Manufacturing was the obvious choice for IMS. They could count on Whitley’s accelerated manufacturing process as well as their ability to engineer and build a well thought-out structure with visual appeal.
Through a cooperative team effort, Whitley Manufacturing, IMS and Dominos worked together to design a structure that would be flexible, functional and efficient. Their design would work in both new markets and existing market rebuilds. While Whitley Manufacturing constructed 85% of the building, IMS was preparing the site and foundation. To further help save time, most of the mechanical, electrical and plumbing fixtures were pre-installed at the Whitley plant. Approximately 10 weeks later, the modules were delivered. This left setting and finishing-out the modules and installing the equipment. In a matter of a couple more weeks, Dominos was preparing their store and employees for its Grand Opening.
