Domino’s Pizza currently has locations in 75 countries. It has its stores in 5,701 cities worldwide (2,900 international and 2,800 in the US). Domino’s had approximately 11,000 stores as of the first quarter of 2014, with 774 in the UK, 4,986 in the US, and 1010 in India. In most cases, Domino’s has master franchise agreements with one company per country, but three companies have acquired multiple master franchise agreements, covering multiple countries:
- The rights to own, operate, and franchise branches of the chain in Australia, New Zealand, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Monaco are currently owned by Australian Domino’s Pizza Enterprises, having bought the master franchises from the parent company in 1993 (Australian and New Zealand franchises) and 2006 (European franchises).
- The master franchises for the UK and Ireland were purchased in 1993 by the British publicly listed Domino’s Pizza Group, which acquired the master franchise for Germany in 2011 and Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Luxembourg in August 2012 by buying the Swiss master franchise holder, with an option to acquire the Austrian master franchise as well. Sweden opened its first Domino’s near the Mobilia shopping mall in Malmö in December 2016.
- The master franchises for India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, are currently owned by the Indian company Jubilant FoodWorks. India is the largest international market for Domino’s outside its home market. The company operates 1004 stores across 230 Indian cities as of February 11, 2016. Apart from the United States, India is the only country that has over 1000 Domino’s outlets. Indian pizza flavors such as paneer pizza, chicken tikka masala pizza, and kheema do pyaza pizza have been sold in other international markets.
- In February 2015, cockroaches and rodent droppings found in the kitchens of some Domino’s Pizza joints in Peru have caused the company to shut temporarily operations in the countryuntil August 28, 2016.
