Staying true to its commitment of fulfilling the voice of its consumers, Domino's Pizza is now serving and delivering its delicious freshly baked pizzas in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.  Unlike the other outlets, the outlets in Sabah allows consumer to dine in for the experience of the freshly baked pizza.  Its opening in Sabah recorded a milestone for Domino's Pizza in Malaysia and Asia Pacific.  Domino's Pizza Malaysia is ranked the 15th largest market in the world as well as the 5th largest in Asia Pacific.

Ba U Shan-Ting, CEO of Domino's Pizza Malaysia & Singapore said, "We are truly humbled by the support shown by our fans here.  We definitely felt the warm welcome from Sabahans especially with our record breaking opening day.  The first store marked an all-time new record for the highest number of sales for opening week of a new store in Asia Pacific this year.  On top of that, we also broke Malaysia's record for best opening week in the past 20 years! All the hard work in setting up of a new market was well worth it with such fantastic response from our consumers."

Our opening in Sabah does not only mark our entry into here but it reflects our promise of "It's All About You", our customers.  We have always had our sights set on Sabah and our fans reminded us that they were ready for us here.  Prior to our opening, we had invested a substantial amount of over RM4 million to undertake market analysis, infrastructure, talent and technology development to ensure our preparedness and smooth operations in delivering quality service and products in Sabah.  Thanks to our supportive customers here, we are excited to announce that Domino's Pizza will be opening two more stores in Sabah by end of the year and we aim to open our market in Sarawak in the next two years.  This is all in line with our target of hitting 300 stores in 2020."

Domino's Pizza Malaysia has grown from strength to strength since it began operations in Malaysia more than 20 years ago.  With the opening of its latest store, Domino's Pizza is available nationwide with 227 stores and counting.

A short but interesting Q&A session with the bosses.
 In conjunction with the introduction of Domino's Pizza in Kota Kinabalu, and living up to the spirit of It's All About You, a special partnership with MASWings was formed to create the first ever Domino's experience in flight as well as to extend deliveries to remote towns in Sabah.  Leading up to the official opening, Pusat Jagaan Anak-Anak Yatim Rumah Al Yakin in Sandakan were among the first to try out Domino's Pizza for the very first time.  The initiative marks a clear representation of the brand's promise in creating memorable experiences for its customers and the community.  The Domino's MASWings flight, decked out in Domino's logos and branding was especially arranged to fly the pizza from Kota Kinabalu to Sandakan.  In Sandakan, these pizzas were personally delivered to the children to enjoy!

I always love Domino's Pizza since my first experience in college years back, they definitely are the pizza delivery experts!  Everything tasted great!
