Same-store sales at Domino’s domestic locations rose 10.5 percent during the third quarter, the pizza-delivery company announced Monday as part of an early look at its Q3 performance.
Domino’s also reported $5.7 million in insurance-related expenses for the quarter, the result of recent increases in the “frequency and severity” of workers’ compensation, general liability and other claims. The company said these charges would have a negative impact on Q3 earnings, to the tune of around 6 cents per share.
The company’s Q3 sales growth lost some momentum from the 12.8 percent comps climb it posted during Q2, the latter of which officials largely attributed to success with recent digital initiatives.
Domino’s—which offers a host of digital-ordering options including text message, Twitter, emoji, smartwatch and smartphone app, and Samsung Smart TV—said earlier this year that nearly half of its domestic sales come from digital orders.
