Domino's maintains sales momentum helped by poor UK summer

The UK's indifferent summer failed to dent Domino's Pizza's performance with strong sales over the period for the takeaway chain.

In the 13-week period to 28 September sales at Domino's increased 17.8% year-on-year to £83.3m (2007: £70.7m).

This brings total sales in the year to date to £253.5m, an increase of 18.9% over last year's £213.2m.

Like-for-like sales, which strip out the effect of new openings, at the group's 449 existing stores increased 8.8% during the period. Domino's currently operates 535 stores.

Chris Moore, chief executive of Domino's UK & Ireland, said: "We are very pleased with the momentum in the business and the resilience of our business model during more challenging economic times."
