News reaches us that Francis Goodwin, the managing director of
Maiden Outdoor, is attempting to make his mark on the take-away pizza
business, a decade or so on from when he ran a bar in Southampton.
Not content with running Maiden, and holding on to his place at 901st in
the Sunday Times’s list of richest people with pounds 18 million, it
seems that he has set up a Domino’s Pizza franchise in Fareham, near
It opened in August, but staged its official opening ceremony only
recently, which the local mayor and mayoress attended as well as a man
who looked fairly familiar to us.
Not that Goodwin’s getting involved in actually delivering fast food on
his Honda 50; he’s quite happy to munch the free pizzas that were given
out at the bash.
On the night of the Campaign Poster Awards, Goodwin was tucked up in bed
when his telephone rang at 4.30am. It was one of his sales team wanting
to know if he wanted a pizza delivered.
They’re a cheeky lot.
