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