Ann Arbor-based Domino’s Pizza has opened its first location in Norway, with plans calling for three more stores in the greater Oslo area by the end of this year.
Oslo is a terrific market for pizza delivery, and we are very excited to deliver the one-of-a-kind Domino’s experience to Norway,” says Birgir Bieltvedt, chairman of the board of the Domino’s Pizza Norway master franchise.
Bieltvedt, also the chairman of the master franchise for Domino’s Pizza Iceland, played a role in opening Domino’s in both Denmark and Germany as well.
Establishing ourselves in Norway provides an excellent opportunity for our brand to continue its global momentum,” says Ritch Allison, Domino’s Pizza executive vice president of international operations.
In addition to expanding its geographic footprint, the pizza company has also been making strides in its technological offerings. Domino’s ordering app is now available on the iPad, and as of June, now offers voice ordering for both its iPhone and Android apps.
Founded in 1960 in Ypsilanti, Domino’s has more than 11,000 stores in more than 70 international markets. The company’s retail sales in 2013 totaled $8 billion, with more than half coming from international sales.
