Domino’s Pizza is continuing its international growth momentum by opening its first store in Kenya.
Om Nom Nom Ltd., the master franchise holder of Domino’s Pizza Kenya, is on a mission to establish more choice and competition within Nairobi – an area with fairly limited pizza delivery options. Om Nom Nom Ltd. has plans to open more stores in Nairobi within the next few years.
“Nairobi is a terrific market for pizza delivery, and we are very excited to deliver the one-of-a-kind Domino’s experience to Kenya,” said Eric Andre, director and co-founder of Om Nom Nom Ltd. “The people of Kenya are eager to try new food and we are incredibly excited to bring them our delicious, quality pizza that is so loved around the world.”
The Westlands, Nairobi location celebrated with a grand opening event on Nov. 8, which Andre, U.S. Ambassador Robert Godec, and Domino’s Pizza International Director Joshua Kilimnik attended.
“Establishing ourselves in Kenya provides an excellent opportunity for our brand to continue growing globally,” said Ritch Allison, Domino’s Pizza international president. “Domino’s has terrific potential to offer an unmatched pizza experience to the people of Nairobi.”
Domino’s now operates in more than 75 markets worldwide, with more than half of its global retail sales coming from international stores.
