Domino's Pizza reports slowing sales growth in 1Q

This post was originally published on this site

Domino’s Pizza Inc.’s first quarter earnings aren’t likely to calm investors’ concerns about slowing growth at the world’s biggest pizza chain.

The Ann Arbor-based company said Wednesday that sales at U.S. stores open at least a year rose 3.9% in the January-March period. That was down from 8.3% a year ago, and fell short of Wall Street’s forecast of 4.9%, according to analysts polled by FactSet.

International same-store sales rose 1.5%, down from 5% a year ago.

Domino’s has been expanding so it can deliver pizzas more quickly. But it’s facing a challenge from delivery services like GrubHub.

Domino’s first quarter net income rose 4.4% to $92.7 million, or $2.20 per share. That beat analysts’ forecast of $2.09. Revenue rose 6.4% to $836 million, which was short of expectations.
