Domino’s carryout sales recover from the pandemic

The pizza delivery giant said its walk-in traffic is back to pre-COVID levels even as delivery remains strong. The result sent its stock soaring.

The pizza chain’s U.S. same-store sales rose 3.5%, the chain's 41st straight positive quarter as consumers continued to order delivery.

The pizza chain has thrived over the past decade through strong same-store sales. But operators have built a lot of units, too, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

While pizza sales jumped last year, they were largely concentrated among a few chains. Most concepts saw sales declines.

The pizza chain is working with the daily fantasy sports company DraftKings to let customers predict the speed of its Carside Delivery service as it starts guaranteeing the service in two minutes or less.

Diners are still eating pizza even as the pandemic eases, but they’re more likely to visit the restaurant for dine-in and carryout.

The company said he resigned to pursue opportunities elsewhere. The pizza chain said that CEO Ritch Allison would act as interim finance chief until a permanent successor is found.

Dennis Maloney, the chain’s chief innovation officer, joins this week’s episode of the RB podcast “A Deeper Dive” to talk about technology and robots.

Domino’s and Papa John’s both believe they can keep growing sales even as comparisons get tough, and say they have advertising dollars to spend, says RB’s The Bottom Line.
