Pizza group Domino’s saw profits jump by 19 per cent at its largest Irish franchise in the first year of the Covid pandemic.
Shorecal, which operates about 30 of the 86 Domino’s outlets across the country, said the pandemic “had a negative effect on trading activities” in 2020.
Turnover in the year to December 27th, 2020, was 3 per cent ahead at €55.26 million. But pre-tax profits rose to €10.5 million, almost 20 per cent on the €8.8 million reported in 2019.
The Republic accounted for just over two-thirds of sales, with the balance coming from Northern Ireland. Employee numbers slipped slightly to 516 last year from 543 in 2019.
