Domino’s Cuts Back Number of Wings included in Carry-Out Deal, Citing Rising Food Costs

Domino’s Pizza is the latest chain making some changes to its menu as food and labor costs continue to soar.

The pizza chain announced that it is reducing the number of wings in its $7.99 carry-out deal from 10 pieces to eight. Customers will no longer be able to order them over the phone or in-person as it moves to a digital-only deal.

CNN Business reports that Domino’s expects an 8 percent to 10 percent increase in food costs this year, resulting in the changes. The chain also expects labor costs to continue to rise.  

“We expect unprecedented increases in our food basket costs versus 2021,” CEO Ritch Allison said during a conference. “I think many of you are aware of the significant inflation across the U.S. economy and how that is hitting many of the inputs that we have for our business, from meats to cheese to some of the grains that go into the production of our products.”

Allison said the changes would be implemented in a couple of weeks. 

Fortunately for customers, one of the chain’s popular deals will not change. The $5.99 Mix and Match delivery deal has been spared — for now.
