Domino’s Pizza is ready to open new stores
An interview with mr. Richard de Gruijter, CFO Europe Operations of Domino’s Pizza by Marcel te Lindert
The first Dutch store of Domino’s Pizza was opened in 1989. Two decades later there are over 130 stores in The Netherlands and Belgium where people can choose from a simple Margaritha to a Perfect Pepperoni. All these stores are supplied on a daily basis with fresh dough and fresh toppings like tomato paste, mozzarella, ham, mushrooms and all other kinds of vegetables. Until recently this was done from a distribution centre in Raamsdonksveer. “The capacity of this centre was no longer sufficient for our Benelux operation. We had to find a new location”, says Richard de Gruijter, CFO for the European operations of Domino’s Pizza. The company asked Groenewout for assistance.
