Iwona Olbryś, Chief Executive of DP Poland said:

“2019 delivered continued expansion and growth in System Sales during the year, notwithstanding the strong comparatives driven by our TV advertising in January and February 2018.

While we continue to experience the impact of competition and labour inflation particularly, we expect to continue to see the positive effects of our well-received marketing campaign, our strong digital presence, and the strength of the Domino’s reputation for quality and service.

Poland’s delivery market is expanding and DPP is well-placed to participate in this growth. Our confidence comes from our positioning in the market place with the Domino’s brand and our experienced team offering to the market great products, service and price.”

DP Poland will release its full year results for 2019 on 31 March 2020.
