DOMINOS PLANNING RAPID EXPANSION

Domino’s Pizza Enterprises is accelerating new store openings to meet customer demand, with the company announcing plans to open almost three new stores a week in Australia and New Zealand over the next three months.

“This growth is customer-driven and a positive for local communities; we have customers asking every week when we will be bringing a new store, and home deliveries, to their area, and now we plan to open 31 stores in just three months, adding more than 800 jobs,” said Domino’s Australia and New Zealand CEO Nick Knight. “Of these new stores, up to three-quarters will be opened by people already in the business, either existing franchisees or current store managers.”

One of the new additions will be a dine-in concept store in central Brisbane. Customers will be able to craft their own pizza creation and select from premium ingredients including chorizo, prosciutto, boccocini and gorgonzola. It is expected that alcohol will be added to the menu in coming months, joining Brisbane-based specialty coffee roasters Fonzie Abbott on the drinks menu.
