Domino’s Pizza announces continued strong growth and declares that one of the key drivers of this growth has been e-commerce. e-commerce has accounted for 39.7% of UK delivered sales (2009: 29.2%) for the 13 week period to 26 September 2010.

Total online sales for the period were up an incredible 68.7% to £33.0m (2009: £19.6m) and have reached £89.9m for the year to date (2009: £54.5m).

Chris Moore, Chief Executive, commented: “With tough comparatives to beat, yet again our franchisees and store teams, supported by our strong head office operation, have risen to the challenge and delivered excellent like-for-like sales growth. As a result of our strong trading in the third quarter and, indeed, the year so far, the Board believes it is on track to achieve full year profitability at the upper end of current market expectations.”
