The new company will be called Domino's Pizza Europe B.V., and will be led by Stan Gage, Vice President of Domino's European Region.
"We're confident we have the capacity to triple our presence in the Netherlands within the next several years, by establishing our support services here and creating a foundation to attract qualified franchising candidates," said Patrick Doyle, Executive Vice President - International, for Domino's Pizza, LLC. "While our initial focus is Holland, we see opportunities for growth throughout the European continent."
