Domino's dives into island nation of Malta
Domino's Pizza opened its first store on the Mediterranean archipelago nation of Malta, in the country's largest city of Birkirkara, a news release said.
Domino's regional master franchisee, Anatron, opened in the market with a local partner, the Famalco Group. That company has interests in real estate, construction and motor vehicle dealerships.
The new pizza theater store features local Maltese tile and an open design that allows customers to watch their pizza being made each step of the way.
"We've been steadily opening new stores around the world, including beautiful and customer-friendly pizza theater stores, like the one in Birkirkara, which stand out in any neighborhood," Domino's International President Ritch Allison, said in the release.
Domino's now operates in more than 85 markets worldwide, with more than half of its global retail sales coming from international stores.
