Dallas — On March 7, 2018, Domino’s Pizza, the largest pizza company in the world based on global retail sales, opened its 15,000th store in Lewisville, Texas.
"This is a huge milestone for Domino's, as we've been opening roughly three stores a day around the world for the past few years," says Patrick Doyle, Domino's president and CEO. "We've opened more than 4,000 stores across the globe in the past 4 years, and we couldn't be more thrilled to commemorate our 15,000th store in the world, right here in Texas."
The commemorative 15,000th store is located at 219 E. Church St. in Lewisville.
Franchise owner Robert Gavitt owns 21 stores throughout the Greater Dallas and Austin, Texas, areas. He began working at Domino's as a delivery driver in 1982 and worked his way up to become a franchisee in 2002. He is not alone — more than 90% of Domino's U.S. franchise owners began their career as part-time Domino's employees.
In 2017, Domino's had global retail sales of over $12.2 billion, with more than $5.9 billion in the U.S. and more than $6.3 billion internationally. Domino's operates in more than 85 markets around the world. Domino's Pizza was founded in 1960. In late 2017, as part of an industry-first collaboration with Ford Motor Company, Domino's began a meaningful test of delivery using self-driving vehicles.
