Domino’s customers have vented their outrage at the pizza-maker’s decision to swap Coke for Pepsi after revamping their drinks menu.
Liam Wilson, who started the discussion on the franchise’s Facebook page on Tuesday, was left furious by the swap.
‘Dominos, the fact that you’ve changed your drink selection from Coke to Pepsi not only disappoints me but sickens me.

‘Quite obviously you do not understand how much your pizza needs to be combined with Coke to get that quality satisfaction and Pepsi does not and will not cut it.
‘Whoever the peanut was that decided that this was a good choice should be fired immediately.
‘Wake up to yourselves,’ he wrote.
Within hours, Mr Wilson’s post had received 10,000 likes and over 2,000 comments with many in agreement with his thoughts.
‘Pepsi is better then Coke but you should be drinking water,’ said one commenter.
‘I was just about to order a supreme pizza from Domino’s. Then when I saw there was Pepsi instead of Coke. I closed my web browser. No pizza,’ said another customer.
A Domino’s Australia media spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia the swap has been in place since September 16.
Domino’s CEO for Australia and New Zealand Nick Knight in a statement said the change was because it wanted to give its customers a wider selection.
‘Customers have told us they want more choice so we are proud to be rolling out our new drinks range to all stores across Australia,’ said Mr Knight.

‘We know each drink in the Schweppes range has a devoted and loyal fan base so we are excited to be offering this extensive range to our customers.’
The company said new range includes Pepsi, Pepsi Max, 7UP, Mountain Dew, Solo and Sunkist in 375ml cans and 1.25l plastic bottles, as well as Cool Ridge spring water 600ml.
