Domino's Pizza (US) to Open 850 New Locations Across Italy

15 Jan 2020 - Italy is getting a new pizza fix — but many people aren’t happy about it.

Domino’s Pizza is reportedly planning a large expansion in Italy, with a plan to open over 850 new locations in the country in the next decade. They will join the European nation’s current 28 restaurants, with a goal of bringing the total up to 880 by 2030, The Local reported last week.

According to the outlet, Alessandro Lazzaroni, CEO of Domino’s in Italy, said the expansion will be focused in northern and central parts of Italy. The franchise hopes to claim two percent of Italy’s pizza market share over the next 10 years, and hope to become the go-to for food delivery.
