Domino's Pizza continues its global momentum as the recognized world leader in pizza delivery by opening its first store in Paraguay.
Grupo Vierci, the Master Franchisee for Domino's Pizza Paraguay, is on a mission to establish more choice and competition within Asuncion - an area with fairly limited pizza delivery options to this point. It plans to have three Asuncion-area stores active by the end of May.
"We are eager to deliver Domino's to the people of Paraguay, so that they can experience the delicious, quality pizza that is so loved around the world," said Paz Vierci, Grupo Vierci managing director.
"Establishing ourselves in Paraguay, and the city of Asuncion, provides an excellent opportunity for our brand to continue its global momentum," said Ritch Allison, Domino's Pizza executive vice president of international. "With a terrific, proven master franchisee like Grupo Vierci, we are confident that Domino's will be able to establish itself as the pizza delivery brand of choice for Paraguay."
