The price of shares in FTSE 250 delivery chain Domino’s Pizza (LON:DOM) has increased by 4.29% to 277.20p (as of 14:50 BST) after it reported a 3.5% rise in group revenues during the quarter ended 29th September. The proportion of online sales has continued to grow and now exceeds 90% of the total in the UK and Ireland.
CEO David Wild commented: “We delivered a solid performance in our core UK and Ireland markets, with system sales up 3.9%, against a market backdrop that remains challenging. Normal working practices continue to be impacted by our franchisee dispute. As we said at our interim results, this situation is complex and we expect a resolution to take time, certainly into 2020. We remain committed to working with our franchisees to agree sustainable win-win solutions.
“[…]Although the financial results have stabilised, the performance of our international business remains disappointing. Over the past six weeks we have completed a review with external consultants, assessing each of our four international markets and the future prospects for our businesses.
