J & B Enterprises, owner/operators of a Domino’s Pizza franchise, employed Jeffrey Hoppock as a delivery driver. Hoppock struck a vehicle while delivering Domino’s pizza. Ralph and Ricky Parker (plaintiffs) were injured by a third vehicle while giving aid to the victims of the first collision caused by Hoppock. The Parkers alleged that Domino’s Pizza, Inc. (Domino’s) (defendant) was vicariously liable for the acts of J & B Enterprises and its delivery driver. The Parkers claimed that Domino’s was the employer of J & B Enterprises and Hoppock because Domino’s exercised significant control over the operations of its franchises. The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of Domino’s. The Parkers appealed to the Florida District Court of Appeal.
