Welcome back! We hope you are enjoying Name that City!

  1. It has consistently been the best-selling car for toddlers. Wait, what? We’re talking about the Cozy Coupe, the feet-powered toy with the yellow top and red body made by Little Tikes that is a consistent top-seller, year in and year out. In what city did its inventor live?
  2. What city is the home of the oldest continuously operating professional soccer team in the United States?
  3. In what city is the Domino’s Pizza headquarters located?

And here are the answers:

  1. Cincinnati, OH—Inventor Jim Mariol, a UC College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning alumnus was granted a design patent for a “Toy Automobile” in 1982.
  2. Milwaukee, WI—The indoor soccer team has been around since 1984 and is the current champion of the Major Arena Soccer League.
  3. Ann Arbor, MI—Domino’s got its start in Ypsilanti back in 1960 but its headquarters is now located in Ann Arbor. The pizza chain began when Tom Monaghan and his brother, James, took over the operation of DomiNick’s, the existing location of a small pizza restaurant chain. The purchase price was $500.
