Domino’s, the home delivery pizza specialist, has reported a rise in like-for-like sales of almost 14% for the past six months.

Pre-tax profits at the takeaway giant soared by just under 29% to £17.5m, as total sales for the period to 27 June grew by more than a fifth to £237.1m.

Chief executive Chris Moore hailed the performance as “another set of great results”.

"It is easy to try and attribute our success to one thing - be it the weather, or Britain's Got Talent [which it sponsors] or the World Cup - but the underlying trend shows a more compelling picture,” said Moore.

“It is great pizza, delivered as quickly as possible, by dedicated franchisees and store teams, which result in solid and steady sales growth, supported by innovative marketing on both a national and local level.

The figures come with Domino’s currently celebrating its 25 years in the UK market.
