Domino's Pizza Inc. today announced the Ann Arbor-based pizza chain earned $192.8 million in 2015 compared to $162.6 million in 2014, an 18.5 percent increase.
"Our network of strong franchisees has become even more profitable during these years of continued positive same store sales growth," says J. Patrick Doyle, president and CEO of Domino's. "Great store economics around the world have led to accelerated unit growth. It's a positive cycle and the momentum continued through 2015."
Doyle says domestic same store sales increased by 12 percent in 2015 compared year over year, while the international division saw same store sales jump nearly 8 percent in 2015 compared to 2014. He says the company had global retail sales of nearly $10 billion in 2015, comprised of more than $4.8 billion in the U.S. and nearly $5.1 billion internationally.
Doyle says Domino's added more than 900 stores in 2015, including about 130 net new domestic stores and a record 768 net new stores internationally. He says diluted earnings per share on an as-reported basis were $3.47 in 2015, up more than 21 percent compared year over year.
