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.

The company is reporting its quarterly earnings on Tuesday, July 16.
