Domino’s posts Q3 comps of 7.7%, names new presidents

The latest dispatch from the pizza wars shows Domino’s Pizza clearly triumphing over archrival Pizza Hut, at least in the third quarter. Domino’s posted a comparable-store sales gain for the period of 7.7 percent domestically and 7.1 percent internationally, compared with a 1-percent global decline for roughly the same timeframe for Pizza Hut.

Simultaneously with the release of the financial data, Domino’s announced that it was appointing presidents of its two main operating divisions. Russell Weiner, a former CMO of the brand, steps up to president of Domino’s U.S.A., and Richard Allison assumes the same post at Domino’s International.
