Domino's under pressure over alleged discontent from franchisees

The hostility supposedly stemmed from growing pressure to open more sites in existing locations amid rising costs.

Domino’s is under pressure over alleged discontent from franchisees, the Sunday Times has reported.

The growing tension was reportedly due to "growing hostility" towards Domino's UK executive David Wild's alleged "hard-man" behaviour, rising costs and pressure to open more sites in existing locations, which would benefit the global pizza company but would damage franchisees’ profits.

Due to the rocky relations, 11 of its big franchisees created Domino’s Franchise Association UK & Ireland to represent the interests of them and others.

“We’re proud to have worked for many years with the most successful franchisees in the world,” a Domino's spokesperson said to QSR Media when asked for comment.
