The Washington Post: Frank Meeks, whose enthusiasm for pizza, politics and promotion garnered him an extra-large slice of the pizza-delivery market and whose Domino's Pizza franchise, known as "Team Washington," often delivered to the White House, the Pentagon and Congress, died Nov. 9 of complications from pneumonia at Sibley Memorial Hospital. He was 48.
Meeks, who owned 60 Domino's Pizza operations in the Washington, D.C., area, was often in the public eye with his off-the-wall antics, political predictions and creative promotions. In a 1998 interview with The Post, Domino's founder Tom Monaghan described Meeks as "the greatest franchisee in the history of Domino's."
