Domino's Pizza reaches 11,000-unit milestone
Domino's Pizza will open its 11,000th store on Wednesday, nearly 54 years after its founding in Ypsilanti, Mich.
The milestone unit is located in Brantford, Ontario, Canada. According to a news release, the chain's first international store opened in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, in 1983.
"I am proud of the many people who worked hard to reach this international milestone for Domino's Pizza," CEO Patrick Doyle said in the release. "We're thrilled we have the opportunity to celebrate our 11,000th store in Canada, where we began expanding to international markets more than 30 years ago."
To mark the 11,000th store, Domino's Pizza of Canada will donate $11,000 to the Rotary Club of Brantford. A celebration will be held on Wednesday that will include Doyle, Domino's Pizza of Canada master franchisee Mike Schlater and Jackie Young, the Domino's Pizza franchise owner of the milestone unit.
The Brantford store is Young's third. She started working for Domino's as a delivery driver in 1986, the release said.
