Pizza.com CEO Announced!

DDC announced this week that they have named Ed Zimmerman the President of Pizza.com – or as I like to say, the big cheese!

The company plans to turn Pizza.com into the single-best online destination for pizza consumers to connect with pizzerias and to find and order pizza locally. This is another great example of how one domain name can easily become an entire business. Ed brings a lot of knowledge and experience that should help Pizza.com achieve it’s goals and I’m excited to see how this company progresses.

Think of the domains you have? How many of them could become stand-alone companies? You might have the next great online store in your possession…you just haven’t started it yet!

Okay – now I’m hungry for Pizza! You can read the press release below to learn more:

      Hi @Pat – sorry about that – I flew to Vancouver today for the Olympics so haven’t been on good blog duty to approve comments 🙂 Thanks for your comment – can’t say I know the answer to it but I can look-into it for you.
