Thanks to a series of new or redesigned products and several successful marketing campaigns, Ann Arbor-based Domino’s Pizza is one of Michigan’s “heavyweight” companies on the rebound, Bridge Magazine reports.

The magazine highlighted publicly traded companies that have seen sales increases over the past couple years, including DTE Energy Co., Domino’s Pizza, Perrigo Co. and the Detroit Three automakers.

Domino’s sales topped $105.3 million in the 2011 fiscal year, a 19.8 percent increase over its 2010 fiscal year.

The company reported earnings-per-share for the full 2011 fiscal year of $1.71, marking the company's best financial performance in its seven-year history as a public company.

Domino’s spokesperson Chris Brandon attributed the company’s success -- even during the economic downturn -- largely to its redesigned pizza and reinvention of its brand.

The company has continued to roll out a series of menu changes, including introducing chicken products, adding artisan pizzas, redeveloping the cheesy bread and adding parmesan bread bites.

Domino’s has 394 corporate-owned U.S. stores and 4,513 U.S. franchised stores in addition to 4,835 foreign stores.
