It's hard to believe, but once upon a time, that sheet of Domino's (DPZ) coupons wasn't nestled in your junk drawer right next to the latest Pizza Hut (YUM) menu.  

Domino's actually began as local pizza spot DomiNick's in Ypsilanti, Michigan. When brothers Tom and James Monaghan bought the restaurant for $500 in 1960, the original owner wouldn't let them use the original name for a chain.

A delivery employee suggest 'Domino's,' Monaghan come up with the iconic three-dot logo and by 1967, a franchise was born. 

Domino's Pizza now operates over 10,000 stores worldwide in more than 70 markets.

While you're still likely to find a slice for a long time to come, investors have lately found the stock less than appetizing. Domino's recent earnings report left Wall Street wishing for better comparable sales at its U.S.-owned stores. 

Time to take a bite or are you better off placing your order elsewhere?
