Global pizza chain Domino’s Pizza has expanded its global presence with the opening of the first restaurant in Dhaka Bangladesh.
Located in Dhanmondi, the restaurant features a new pizza theatre design including the latest interior and seating, an open kitchen design offering a front row seat for customers to watch the pizza-making process.
The company has partnered with Domino’s master franchisee Jubilant FoodWorks and its Bangladesh-based operator Golden Harvest to manage the business in the country, as well as serve online orders from customers.
Jubilant FoodWorks CEO Pratik Pota said: “We are excited to launch the first Domino’s restaurant in Dhaka and look forward to offering a menu that keeps the needs and preferences of local customers in mind, while also offering the best of the brand’s international menu.
“We believe that our high-quality products and value will resonate well with customers. We will also be one of the first brands to launch an ordering app that will help to redefine the pizza ordering experience for customers in Bangladesh.”
The international pizza chain is planning to open additional locations in the country later this year. Domino’s currently operates more than 15,900 stores in over 85 markets globally.
In December last year, the pizza chain opened its first store in Port Louis, Mauritius, through local operator Island Living, the country’s master franchisee.
The company also announced plans to open a second store before the end of this year in the Beau Bassin community.
In another development, Domino’s Pizza Group has named Ian Bull as an independent non-executive director of its board.
Domino’s will also appoint Bull to the board’s audit, remuneration and nomination committees and will chair the audit committee. He will assume his new role starting 18 April.
Domino’s chairman Stephen Hemsley said: “Ian’s range of financial and operational experience gained from complementary sectors, together with his extensive ‘plc’ experience, make him an excellent addition to the Board. On behalf of the Board, I am delighted to welcome Ian to Domino’s.”
