Domino's Pizza has started the year with two new market openings: Azerbaijan and Cambodia. These two markets offer exciting opportunities to bring the taste, service, and pizza expertise of Domino's to more new customers around the globe.
"We're off to a great start in 2015 with the opening of these two new markets," says Ritch Allison, president of Domino's Pizza International. "Our global store growth momentum means that we're opening many beautiful new stores worldwide and attracting new customers to our dynamic brand. Now, customers in Azerbaijan and Cambodia can experience the quality, delicious pizzas enjoyed by Domino's fans around the world."
Domino's Pizza in Azerbaijan is owned by Fides, a private equity company that holds master franchise rights to Domino's in Azerbaijan and two other markets, and is operated by Aslan Saranga, the brand's general manager. The first store opened in Baku, the capitol of Azerbaijan, and is committed to delivering hot, quality pizzas to the local residents. The new pizza theater store layout in Baku features an open concept design, allowing for customers to watch their pizzas being made and baked, bringing the art and fun of pizza making to the forefront.
The new Domino's Pizza store in Cambodia is owned by D.Pizza PLC, a joint venture between CBM Corporation. Co. Ltd and Evolution Capital, Thailand. The group has extensive experience in the retail food business with multiple international food chains under their management. The new store opened in the capitol, Phnom Penh, and hosted Julie Chung, deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh, at the grand opening celebration. The new store also utilizes the pizza theater design and includes a comfortable lobby, indoor seating, and an open-area viewing area of the food preparation process.
With six new markets opening in the past 12 months, in both developed and emerging economies, Domino's continues to be among the fastest growing American quick-serve chains in terms of international store count.
