Domino’s Pizza Just Hit a Big Milestone as It Works Toward Its 2025 Goals

Restaurant chain Domino’s Pizza (NYSE:DPZ) reported second-quarter earnings results on July 22 and the stock soared following the release. In short, sales at restaurant locations that have been open for more than a year were up 3.5% in the U.S. and 13.9% internationally — these are called same-store sales or comparable sales. Q2 marked the 41st and 110th consecutive quarter of U.S. same-store sales growth and international same-store sales growth, respectively, and this was on top of Domino’s incredible sales growth in 2020. Few investors expected Domino’s to grow sales this far removed from the start of the pandemic.

In this video clip from Motley Fool Live, recorded on July 15, Fool contributors Jon Quast and Brian Withers discuss how same-store sales growth and new restaurant locations are part of Domino’s game plan as it marches toward its 2025 goals.

best UK pubs and big screens showing the Euro 2020 games

This popular Manchester establishment set in an old pub is one of the finest spots in the city to catch the games, considering it houses possibly the largest screen in Manchester, which is viewable from everywhere in the courtyard. The drinks menu features an extensive range of global beers, and the food is top notch, particularly from the famous rotisserie.

Dive NQ, Manchester

If you’d prefer to stay out of the hot summer sun on game day, then Dive NQ might be the perfect place to retreat to at match time. The air-conditioned ‘dive bar’ is a Northern Quarter favourite offering a specific ‘sports menu’ including  a selection of small plates such as mini cheeseburgers and Dive fried chicken – ideal for a mid-match bite with friends.

For years, one of my favorite spots to get a quick lunch in Irving has been Desi District, a fast-casual Indian restaurant and grocery with modern branding, scrumptious snacks, fusion “taco-dosas” and a case full of subcontinent-flavored cupcakes.

As Desi District gained renown in Las Colinas — including a two-star Dallas Morning News review — they got ever busier, and snagging a table became difficult. This year, they took action, and now one of Irving’s most exciting restaurants is enjoying an expansion and redesign of the original location.

This week, Desi District opens a second location, 20 miles north of the original in Little Elm. The new place includes a restaurant, butcher shop and banquet hall for events.

“Slowdown actually gave us an opportunity
