Domino’s Hits 5,000 Overseas

Twenty-seven years after opening its first international store, Domino's Pizza has opened its 5,000th store outside of the U.S.

Technically, the Ann Arbor, Mich., chain held grand-opening celebrations at three new stores and granted each the symbolic title of Store No. 5,000. Ribbons were cut on new units in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Cologne, Germany; and Penang, Malaysia. With these openings, Domino's Pizza now operates 46 stores in Brazil, eight stores in Germany and 83 stores in Malaysia.

The company operates more than 9,800 stores in 72 international markets.

"This is a significant milestone in the history of our brand," said J. Patrick Doyle, Domino's Pizza president and CEO. "Earlier this year, we saw our international store count exceed that of the U.S., and this brings us ever closer to that magic number of 10,000 stores. I'm looking forward to celebrating the opening of our 10,000th store worldwide, which could happen sometime this fall."
