US-Based pizza chain Domino’s recently inaugurated its pioneering container model store in the southern region of India. The grand opening took place at the campus of the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad Sangareddy in Telangana last week, as announced by a company official on social media.
“Happy to share our First Domino’s Container Model for the South Region at IIT Campus Sangareddy,” wrote Hemanth Koppisetty Deputy Manager – Business Development Dominos – Telangana on LinkedIn.
The concept was first introduced by the brand at Royal Global University in Guwahati, Assam earlier this year.
In 2021, Domino’s introduced the global concept of container stores with the opening of its first such store in Tawa, New Zealand.
The design of this store sets it apart from the chain’s typical restaurant layout. It’s more compact and features an optimized internal arrangement, as noted in the blog. The Tawa location resembles a drive-through, where patrons collect their food from the store window and enjoy it in the outdoor seating area.
As per an official report from Jubilant Foodworks, the official franchise partner of Domino’s in India, a total of 249 new Domino’s outlets were inaugurated in 56 previously untapped cities. This expansion has brought the network to a grand total of 1,816 stores, spanning 393 cities across India during the financial year 2022-23. According to Livemint, the company is also planning to open an additional 250 stores in the upcoming 12-18 months.
