I do tip- pizza delivery, taxi, whatever. I don't mind rounding up and paying it forward now and then

A single entity restaurant also has to source its own suppliers and negotiate terms for them. A franchise generally has all that organised for it at far more attractive rates than a small restaurant could ever manage.
There marketing and publicity costs a franchise pays buys them far more exposure than they could otherwise get for the same amount of money if they weren't part of a national chains and of course is far more lucrative than it otherwise would be.
A national or state wide Pizza Hut or Domino's ad campaign for $5 pizzas will bring in far more customers than any campaign by a small loca restaurant - hence they can offer $5 pizzas when a local pizza restaurant simply couldn't produce a pizza for such a small amount and sustain their business.
And as @Sonja mentioned, I wouldn't want a local pizza place to make a $5 pizza because it would taste BLERGH.

The families who are buying the Pizza Hut and Dominos are usually trying to get value for money unfortunately not gourmet. I know that I can feed my family the cheapest on takeaway pizza than any other takeaway.

I don't tip but I do write/tell management if I get great service.

My pizza place already charges $4.50 delivery fee so I would hope that means the driver earns a decent hourly rate.
It usually costs us $40 for pizzas delivered so I can't afford to tip on top of that.

Sorry Nancy Blankett I'm just trying to point out that people, young Australian families still own and operate your local Pizza Hut, Dominos or Eagle Boys. They have paid a lot of money to buy their area and are run like any other small business. They employee local people, they use local electricians and plumbers, they pay taxes and superannuation. They are still struggling Aussies like most of us.

We always tip for good service. Its remembered and we get even better service next time we are there.
