Expanding network

In a statement, Sameer Khetarpal, CEO and MD, JFL, said, “The March quarter performance was remarkable, as Domino’s India’s like-for-like trajectory turned around in Q4. This was achieved through several pre-planned strategic interventions, including strengthened regional infrastructure, enhanced on-ground execution and a comprehensive revamp of the brand, while further refinining the value proposition through targeted delivery fee waivers during a period of weak demand.”

“Moreover, the year witnessed substantial progress across every strategic priority, with increased business re-investments that weigh on near-term margins, but will be a pivotal catalyst to drive our future growth across all brands and markets,” he added.

JFL currently operates 1,995 restaurants under brand Domino’s. As per the company’s investor presentation, there is potential to scale up the Domino’s network in India to about 4,000 restaurants in the medium term.
