Court Rules That Dominos Franchises Don’t Have To Buy Franchisor’s Software
Minneapolis – June, 2007 — Michael Dady and Scott Korzenowski assisted a group of Domino’s Pizza Franchises to secure a summary judgment in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota declaring that franchisees did not have to install Domino’s proprietary PULSE computer system. Domino’s had argued that it had the legal right to require franchisees to install PULSE, but the court concluded that the agreements unambiguously required Domino’s to provide the franchisees with only the specifications for the computer hardware and software, and that Domino’s could not limit the sources for the computer hardware and software.
