The UK’s biggest pizza delivery firm said that its UK sales saw a boost of 8.1% at stores that were open for more than a year, whilst online orders in the UK rose by 17.4%.

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. 

The company expects full-year capital expenditure to be in the lower end of the GBP$50mn-GBP£60mn range and for pre-tax profit to be at least in line with current market expectations. 

The company said it would open 90 new stores in the UK this year, saying that there was a strong demand for delivered food in the UK despite the uncertain consumer environment.
