Domino's takes bigger slice of UK food delivery orders
An international fast food group has announced in its fourth quarter results that it saw a multi-million increase in orders.
Domino’s Pizza Group, which has UK headquarters in London, announced that it saw an increase in sales in the final quarter of 2019, with online sales growing significantly.
Total UK orders were 17.3m, up 2.3 per cent on Q4 last year. For the year as a whole, UK orders were 65.3m, up 1.2 per cent year on year.
The company also announced that UK online sales were up 8.3 per cent and ROI online sales were up 11 per cent.
12 new franchised stores opened in the UK during Q4, by 11 different franchisees, and for the year there were 32 stores opened in the UK and ROI, of which three were corporate and 29 were franchised.
David Wild, CEO of the group, said: “I am pleased with the performance of our core UK and Ireland markets, with system sales up 4.4 per cent and UK like-for-likes up 3.9 per cent against a strong comparative and a competitive backdrop.
“This performance was driven by the power of our brand, our strong digital capabilities and the operational expertise of our franchisee partners.
“At the end of the period we announced the tragic passing of our CFO, David Bauernfeind. David will be deeply missed by all who knew him and worked with him.
“He leaves behind a high-quality finance team who have shown remarkable resilience and dedication over the past month, and we are well advanced in the search for an interim CFO.
“We look forward to announcing our preliminary results next month and updating the market on strategic progress made over the last few months.”
