Domino's Pizza announced that they are reducing the number of wings in its $7.99 carry-out offer from ten pieces to eight because of rising food and labor costs.
Additionally, wings will only be available for ordering online, no longer by phone.
Domino's CEO Richard Allison told CNN Business, that the company has had to deal with "unprecedented increases" in food prices. He explained that the costs of its ingredients have increased eight to ten percent compared to last year. That is significantly higher than the usual hike of 3 to 4 percent.
He also noted that having them available only online equals a higher average receipt and fewer workers are needed to answer phones.
Other fast-food chains, including rivals to Domino’s, have also increased their prices due to rising costs.
On Wednesday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that inflation hit a 39-year high, with the US consumer price index rising 7 percent over the past year before seasonal adjustments, the steepest climb in prices since June 1982. Food costs also rose 0.5 percent.
