Domino's Pizza's Net Income Soars; Chain Focuses on Digital Ordering

Domino's Pizza's (NYSE: DPZ) net income rose 17.7 percent in its fiscal third quarter, thanks to higher restaurant sales and global revenue growth. The Ann Arbor, Mich.-based chain also said its same-store sales rose a combined 5.4 percent at its 4,939-unit domestic operation and 5 percent for its franchised international system of 5,627 units. To continue its domestic and international growth, Domino's executives plan to increase customer adoption of its digital ordering system, which already accounts for 40 percent of all its U.S. pizza sales. To that end, Domino's executives intend to boost its international customers' use of online ordering. Story
