Now Brandon’s Gone Too Far — Dominos Will Cut The Number Of Wings You Get Over Inflation…

Domino’s Pizza says it will cut the amount of wings in its usual $7.99 carry-out offer from 10 to eight pieces as it battles ‘unprecedented increases’ in food costs due to inflation, which rose by 7 percent in the U.S. last year.

The Michigan-based pizza chain said wings will become an online exclusive, which will save the company money because customers spend more online and because stores will need less people to answer calls from wing-crazed fans.

Domino’s CEO Richard Allison told CNN Business that the cost of ingredients is rising by eight to 10 percent compared to last year. The company usually forecasts a hike of three to four percent.

Domino’s said the changes to the chicken wings on its menu will take effect in a couple weeks.

The Labor Department said Wednesday that the consumer price index rose 0.5 percent last month after surging 0.8 percent in November, with President Joe Biden highlighting the slowing rate of growth as an achievement.

That increase pushed annual inflation to 7 percent in December, which is the highest level since June 1982.
