DP Poland, the master franchise of Domino’s Pizza in Poland, is set to up the pace of its expansion, with three new stores set to open and the appointment of a head of site development. The company, which opened its first store in the country earlier this year, opened its second Domino’s Pizza store this week in central Warsaw. Peter Shaw, chief executive DP Poland, comments: “As our second store opens the store roll-out programme is gathering pace, with the third store nearly complete and construction about to commence on the fourth. “I am also very pleased to announce that our first store has recently received a five star rating from our international franchisor, an outstanding result which reflects the time and effort spent developing a best of breed Domino’s offer for Poland. This standard now provides the operational benchmark for all of our stores going forward. “Our online ordering system was activated at the end of April and is already accounting for between 5-10% of sales without active promotion of this channel.” To aid its expansion plans the company has hired Agnieszka Kaczmarek as its new head of site development. She will have responsibility for site identification, lease negotiation and store construction and fit-out. Kaczmarek, who has extensive real estate experience, joins the company from Tesco where she had responsibility for large store formats in Poland. DP Poland raised £6.5m following its listing on AIM last year. It had a market capitalisation on admission of around £10m.
