However, the pizza chain’s net income fell by 1.7% from $118.7m in Q2 2020 to $116.6m in Q2 2021. The fall was attributed to significantly higher provision for income taxes.

The company’s diluted earnings per share stood at $3.12 per share on an adjusted basis. The figure was $2.99 in the year-ago quarter.

Domino CEO Ritch Allison said: “I am very pleased with our strong global retail sales and store growth momentum during the second quarter, which demonstrated the power of our investments in innovation, our focus on food quality and superior service, and our dynamic franchisees who are dedicated to serving their local neighbourhoods.

“Given our current operating environment, we are watching our two-year sales trends anchored to pre-Covid fiscal 2019 results.  I am pleased that in the second quarter our cumulative two-year same stores sales were up 19.6% domestically and 15.2% internationally, signifying meaningful and sustained growth.”
