More dough has been added to the books of Domino's after an impressive summer for the pizza giant. Domino's reported an 18% rise in sales in the three months to 28 September.

That means the British public spent £165.7m on Domino's, compared with its sales of £140.9m for the same period last year.

Like-for-like sales, which exclude stores open less than a year, were up 12.9%, Domino's said.

Domino's plans to open 12 new stores in London, and plans to increase its capital presence to between 40 and 50.

But the future lies online for the pizza maker. The rise in sales was attributed to Domino's presence, with 71% of delivery orders made online or on mobile, compared with 61% last year. Last week, Domino's said it would be making a greater push on online and mobile sales.

David Wild, chief executive of Domino’s Pizza Group, said: “You make it easier for customers to order pizza, the more pizza they will order.

"We are building on our success online with the roll-out of our new website and a series of enhancements to continue to make it easy for our customers to order Domino's."
