The company achieved the 1,000-store milestone across the continent.

The master franchisee of Domino’s in Europe saw network sales increase by 11% to EUR712.9m, primarily bolstered by online sales.

In a trading update, Australia-listed Domino’s Pizza Enterprises also reported a 3.1% increase in same store sales growth. Aforementioned online sales contributed 24% more year-on-year.

Europe CEO Andrew Rennie says the progress in their sales was due to positive sales growth and in all countries, a number of store openings - including 77 new stores this year, integration of German Hallo Pizza chain and acquisition of the Luxembourg and Denmark franchises.

Domino’s also said it passed the 1,000-store milestone in Europe this year, with 300 stores in Germany and a 400th store set to open in France.
