Opening record at Domino's Germany Domino's Germany
remains on track for success in the European market, continuing its tremendous revenue and profit growth
from the previous year. Despite significant constraints related to Covid-19, Domino's Germany set a new record high with the opening of 40 new stores. "We recognized early on that the 'hunger' for delivery services was growing and were able to outpace the competition with a mature infrastructure and a consistent, more attractive offering," Domino's Germany CEO Stoffel Thijs
said. Domino's Germany has 371 operations, around 180 franchisees and around 10,000 employees.
As in the previous year, the company relied on a strong brand presence on TV, radio and digital
. Especially in the digital area, the market leader was able to significantly increase performance and reach even more (potential) customers in an effective way. Domino's Germany also has another reason to be happy: "Despite the strong growth, we were able to improve our delivery times compared to last year
and deliver hot pizza to our customers even faster!" At the same time, he stresses that the safety of all employees is always paramount. Speed is always made in the store by optimizing processes, relying on new technology or adjusting delivery areas, never on the street, he said.
