Cologne store one of three symbolic 5,000th Domino’s global stores

Cologne, Germany, today [21 June 2012], sees the opening of the latest store for Domino’s Germany – and one of three stores opening that day that will be recognised as the 5,000th international store for Domino’s Pizza Inc. In combination with the other two symbolic 5,000th stores – in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Penang, Malaysia – this landmark event comes 27 years after the first store outside of the USA was opened. The Cologne store, which is being opened by Domino’s Pizza Group – the holder of the master franchise for the UK, Republic of Ireland and Germany – takes the current tally of German stores to eight. It is being opened by franchisee Abdul Mumtaz, who already has a store in Bonn as well as several in the UK.

The opening of the store is being celebrated with live music and a guest appearance by UK franchisee and World’s Fastest Pizza Maker, Pali Grewal, who successfully defended his title last month in Las Vegas. Pali holds the world record for pizza making, with a time of just 39.1 seconds to make three large pizzas.

Domino’s Pizza Group CEO, Lance Batchelor, said: “We are delighted to have the honour of opening the 5,000th international store. Our plans in Germany are progressing well and opening a global milestone like this will help raise our profile as we continue to expand in the
region.”
