The world’s largest pizza franchise, Domino’s Pizza is coming to town.

The world’s largest pizza franchise, Domino’s Pizza, is coming to town.

Taste Holdings announced yesterday that they have signed an exclusive 30 year master licence agreement to develop the international Domino’s Pizza brand, initially in seven Southern African countries, including South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Domino’s is to said to be to pizz what McDonalds is to burgers. Founded in 1960, Domino's Pizza is the recognised world leader in pizza delivery, with more than 1 million pizzas being delivered daily worldwide, a figure that is set to escalate once the first Domino’s store opens in South Africa.

'This will be the largest conversion in Domino's Pizza history'

Domino's Pizza currently holds the number one pizza delivery and carryout market position in 38 markets, including the UK, India, Mexico, Australia, South Korea, Turkey and France.

"This will be the largest conversion in Domino's Pizza history and certainly a big first for our market as well," founder of Scooters Pizza, Carlo Gonzaga says.

The company is tight-lipped about the exact timeline for converting stores, these are planned to start during this year.

No new Scooters Pizza or St Elmo’s stores will be opened for the next few months, although new franchisee applications for new Domino’s Pizza stores will be accepted.
