U.S. pizza chains hit a post-pandemic wall

The Bottom Line: Growth that came so easy to pizza delivery chains like Domino’s, Pizza Hut and Papa Johns is now much harder to come by. And now two of them are looking for new leadership.

The pizza delivery chain added the largest number of new operators in 15 years in 2023. All of them started as delivery drivers or other employees within the system.

The pizza chain's transactions increased late last year, largely due to the unique buy-one, get-one-free promotion and growth in its reconfigured Domino's Rewards loyalty program.

Domino's Pizza Enterprises blamed sales weakness in Asia on consumer rejection of American brands over the Israel-Palestine crisis.

The pizza chain is regaining delivery customers as profitability improves, thanks to better operations, staffing and higher prices. It is now focused on accelerating growth worldwide.

The pizza chain is giving out $500,000 worth of grants to communities for snow plowing services this season.

The chain is giving $1 million worth of free pizzas to people who have to start paying student loans again.

The pizza chain is seeing some strong results with its Pepperoni Stuffed Cheesy Bread, its second new product introduction this year. Expect more from the chain.

The pizza chain, which saw another decline in same-store sales, expects sales to improve later this year and into 2024. But profitability is already better.
