Domino’s Pizza, the pizza delivery business, is developing a food court concept as it looks at further ways to increase its presence in the UK away from its traditional high street locations, M&C Report has learnt. The company, which currently operates c.675 units in the UK, is thought to be close to securing its first shopping centre site in the South East for what it describes as its “new concept in fast food dining”. M&C Report understands that the company will operate the food court site, the design of which is still under development, as part of a joint venture with an established franchisee. The group is believed to have appointed property advisor DMR Property to look at opportunities in major shopping centre food courts throughout the UK offering a minimum of 1,250sq ft. Last month, the business, which is led by Chris Moore, opened its first roadside site in conjunction with motorway services operator Moto Hospitality on the M4 at Leigh Delamere East services, in Wiltshire. The second store under the link, which will see the pizza firm eventually open up to 43 sites on Britain’s motorways, is due to open later this summer at Cherwell Valley services on the M40 in Oxfordshire.
