American restaurant chain Domino’s Pizza has achieved a major milestone by opening its 16,000th store in the world in Cheektowaga, New York.

The pizza chain has partnered with its franchise owner Allan Erwin to operate the store.

Domino’s president and CEO Ritch Allison said: “This is an incredible milestone for Domino’s, and I am beyond excited it is happening in Cheektowaga.

“We’ve grown our total global store count by nearly 4,800 stores in the past five years, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to commemorate our 16,000th store in the world, right here in New York.”

Erwin purchased his first Domino’s store in 1998, and currently owns 37 stores across New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.

Having the Cheektowaga community be a part of this milestone is very meaningful to me, as does being able to give back to the community.

“He also donated $16,000 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Western New York Chapter to in honour of the milestone.”

Domino’s franchise owner Allan Erwin said: “Having the Cheektowaga community be a part of this milestone is very meaningful to me, as does being able to give back to the community.

“The Domino’s team and I are honoured to support a great local organisation that helps cure cystic fibrosis and provides all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualised treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialised care.”

In December last year, Domino’s Pizza entered Mauritius with its first store in the country in Port Louis. It has partnered with local operator Island Living for the store.
