Domino's: Stop the Deaths! End Your 30 Minute Delivery Guarantee

February 2011


Domino's Pizza's "30 minutes or it's free" guarantee, which promises a discounted or free pizza if it is not delivered within a 30-45 minute time frame, has contributed to the injuries and deaths of hundreds of delivery people, mostly young men in their twenties, as they recklessly navigated traffic on bicycles so as to ensure the on-time delivery of the pizzas and avoid having the cost taken out of their paychecks. A number of groups in South Korea, including several labor unions, had been pressuring Domino's to abolish the 30 minute guarantee, to no avail.

But after this campaign directly targeted 12 senior officials and board members at Domino's Pizza in the US in solidarity with the Korean activists, within a few days Domino's gave in with a statement on their Korean website.

Freelance journalist Lee Yoo Eun contacted us with the good news of the policy change, commending for an effective campaign: "Looks like your hard effort has payed off. Congratulations!"

Starting in 1973, Domino's started the "30 minutes or it's free" campaign, guaranteeing that customers would receive their pizza within 30 minutes of placing an order, or they would receive the pizza for free. But in 1993, after the company was faced with two lawsuits from people who were killed or injured by delivery drivers rushing to get pizzas delivered within the 30 minute timeframe, the company dropped the guarantee in the U.S.

Yet, the 30 minute guarantee is still going strong in South Korea, where in December 2010, a 24 year old College student and part-time delivery boy died after colliding head-on with a taxi while he was delivering an order. This young man was one of almost 1,500 accidents that occured last year alone involving bike-riding delivery men.

Tell Domino's that its "30 minute or it's free" guarantee in South Korea is outdated and dangerous, and it needs to end.

      We did it! Domino's ended their 30 minute or it's free guarantee today thanks to pressure from a number of Unions in South Korea, and help from all of us on . I'll be posting more shortly, but wanted you all to be the first to know! Thanks for standing up for the safety of delivery drivers all over the world, and congratulations!

      There are rumors that Domino's has agreed to our demands and is withdrawing the advertisement. We are still trying to confirm.

      I do not buy or eat domino pizza and intend to tell everyone I know not to support domino pizza. Perhaps, taking money out of their pockets will drive the message home.

      It sounds like the issue here isn't the guarantee as much as it is retributions against the workers who don't deliver within the 30 minutes, regardless of the circumstances. Most employers treat their workers like expendable pawns. This is why workers need to unionize and support stronger whistleblowing laws. Like their puppets in the Federal, state and local governments, the behavior of most owners and top brass of the for profit and non profit companies either borders on the criminal, or is clearly criminal.

      But, as money buys one "justice" in the United States and every other nation on this corrupt, polluted and war torn planet, few of these "white collar" criminals are ever brought to "justice."
