Domino’s Pizza UK Takes a Slice of Swiss Market

"Pizza delivery firm Domino's Pizza UK said it planned to expand further into Europe, acquiring 12 Swiss stores and an option for the Austrian franchise rights," according to Reuters.

"The company, which currently operates the British, Irish and German franchises of the global pizza delivery brand, has thrived during the economic downturn as people have stayed at home rather than going on expensive nights out, and is now on course for over 800 stores in the UK by the end of the year.

It said on Tuesday that it would acquire the Swiss stores for 7 million Swiss francs ($7.3 million) and it planned to open at least 25 new stores in the country over the next five years as it relaunched the brand."
