Domino's Pizza Aims For
A Slice Of The Israeli Market

vice Manufacturers Associa-
tion said Domino's is the
fastest growing food service
company, expanding at the
rate of four stores per day.
Domino's operates take out
restaurants in Canada, Hon-
duras, Australia, Costa Rica,
Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto
Rico, England and West Ger-
many. Efforts are under way
to bring the company into
Guam, Korea, Singapore, Ita-
ly, Holland, Belgium, France,
Spain, Guatemala, Panama
and Mexico, officials said.

fficials
for
the
Ann Arbor-based
Domino's Pizza Inter-
national unveiled plans this
week to deliver their first
franchise to Israel.
International Operations
Director Doug Anderson and
International Distribution
Manager Tim Starsiak
outlined the plans in an inter-
view with The Jewish News
at Domino's Farms, the corn-
pany headquarters. They said
Domino's is negotiating with
several potential franchise
owners in Israel.
Anderson, Starsiak and
other members of Domino's
international staff visited
Israel last month for an an-
nual food exhibition, return-
ing with news that a fran-
chise could open 90 days after
they find a qualified
proprietor.
"Israel is ready for
Domino's," Anderson said.
"Israel is a catalyst for
growth from a business point
of view."
Anderson said the current
unrest in the administered
territories was not discussed
during the business
meetings. But in any case, he
said, the politics of the Mid-
dle East would not affect
business deals with Israel.
"We see no color and no
boundaries; just oppor-
tunities," Anderson said.
Plans to open a take-out
restaurant in Israel are part
of Domino's chief Tom
Monaghan's goal of operating
10,000 stores before the year
2000.
If Domino's successfully
delivers its pizzas to Israel,
the business would join near-
ly 200 other American-based
companies that operate in
Israel, the only country that
enjoys free trade status with
the United States and the
European common market.
Because of this arrangement,
Domino's could provide duty-
free products to its European
pizza operations.
Israel, Starsiak said, would
provide the company with "a
very comfortable bridge bet-
ween Europe and North
America."
"There is a change in the
Israeli business climate to-
day," Starsiak said. "We are
seeing much more of an en-
trepreneurial spirit being
manifested there. Things are
moving forward very rapidly;
that's encouraging.

Tom Monaghan:
Franchising in Israel

"Israel is about 20 years
behind Europe in business
developments and it looks
like that gap could be over-
come in six months."
Anderson said the first
Israeli store likely would be
built in Herzlia, a city north
of Tel Aviv. It's logo and menu
would be comprised of
Hebrew letters, and the pizza
probably will be kosher, he
said. If the first business is
successful, Domino's would
franchise other stores, he
said.
"Under the best advice, we
would recommend that units
in Israel be strictly kosher.
That seems to be the way to
go," Anderson said, adding
that the company is consider-
ing using Israel-grown
vegetables for pizza toppings
and substituting meat with
soy products.
The building would look
like other Domino's, and the
promotional tactics would be
the same. Customers who
don't get pizza delivered
within 30 minutes get their
orders for free.
Domino's registered its
trademark with the Israel
Commerce Department in
1980 — three years before the
company opened its first
foreign store in Winnipeg,
Manitoba.
This would be the second
business deal between
Domino's and Israel. The com-
pany has been purchasing
Milos pizza sauce from Israel
for about two years, Starsiak
said.
Domino's, founded 28 years
ago by Monaghan, also owner
of the Detroit Tigers, is the
world's second largest pizza
chain with 4,344 stores in
nine countries. The largest,
Pizza Hut, operates 6,200
The International Foodser-
restaurants throughout the
world.
