Peter Shaw, Chief Executive of DP Poland said:
“We continued to see strong growth in system sales in the first half of 2017, thanks to robust double digit like-for-likes and 10 store openings, year to date. 8 additional towns and cities have been added to the Domino’s map in Poland so far this year.
Our rate of growth in online sales continues with 73% of all delivery orders made online in the first half of 2017, compared to 71% for the full year 2016, a trend that brings us in line with many of the more mature Domino’s markets. An effective online ordering system benefits both our customers and our operational efficiencies, making the ordering process easier and less labour intensive. We expect the proportion of delivery sales made online to continue to grow as we invest in our digital technology and marketing.”
Our state-of-the art commissary in Łódź is nearing completion and we expect it to come on stream in September, giving us the capacity to supply up to 150 stores with fresh dough and ingredients, in combination with our Warsaw facility.”
