The UK growth comes as Domino’s Pizza Group reached a major landmark in the Group’s history, opening its 1,000th store in the country, 

Meanwhile, in the rest of Europe, sales reportedly rose by 25% to GBP£24.8mn. 

The company cited the opening of new stores and quirky additions to its menu including chocolate-covered pizzas as the reason for its growth. 

Domino’s was the biggest rise in the FTSE 250, with the mid-cap index by 63.41 points at 20,165.97.
