Domino’s Pizza bucked the industry’s downward sales trend by posting a 12.2% leap in domestic same-store sales for the last three months of 2016, the highest gain by far for a public restaurant company for that calendar period.
Domino’s CEO Patrick Doyle characterized the chain’s performance as “unprecedented.”
“The momentum and alignment within our system has never been stronger,” he said in a statement.
The same-restaurant increase helped in pushing Domino’s revenues for the fourth quarter to $819.4 million, a 10.6% increase. Net income for the period jumped 15.9%, to $72.7 million.
The company attributed its industry-leading results in part to the adoption of new ways for customers to place delivery orders digitally.
