pizza chains contribute around 50 per cent of the sales.
In the mid 1990s a spate of global fast food chains entered hoping to capture a part of Indian fast
food segment but they found it difficult to establish themselves. Domino's Pizza India Ltd. was
incorporated in March 1995 as the master franchisee for India and Nepal, of Domino's Pizza
International Inc., of USA.
Since inception, Domino's Pizza India Ltd. has proceeded to become one of the largest and
fastest growing international food chains in South Asia. The first Domino's Pizza store in India

PRODUCT TARGETING

Large corporate offices, railway stations, cinema halls and university campuses for faster
growth.
It has already established an outlet at Infosys corporate office in Bangalore and at three
cinema halls- PVR in New Delhi, Rex in Bangalore and New Empire in Kolkata.
Domino also classified its outlets into Super Stores, Express stores and Regular stores.
Super stores were those which generated high traffic and therefore had more counters
than the regular outlets (the outlet in Churchgate, Mumbai). Express stores were those
where people were expected to walk in and order rather than ask for home delivery
(University campuses, Offices or Cinema Halls)
They executed flawlessly through the use of standard store layouts, training programs,
operational evaluations and a focus on our exceptional people.
According to Ajay Kaul, CEO of Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd, the group franchisee for Dominos
India, the company plans to cross the 500-outlet mark in the next three years.
According to him, the fast food chain has established the brand with the middle and lower group.
As a result, there are 25 Dominos outlet in Tier II and Tier III cities such as Indore, Jammu
Jamshedpur and Haridwar.

PRODUCT POSITIONING

Dominos brand is built around the emotional benefit of satisfies your craving for tasty food at
the time of need. The main focus is on owning the taste platform as a means to satisfy the
craving for good food through innovative and indulgent pizzas, and the 30 minutes delivery
promise is a credible reason for the at the time of need positioning.
Their core target customer is the urban SEC-A family in the age group of 18-35 years, where
both husband and wife are working, who are short of time but want to indulge in tasty food at
home.

Over a period of time, customers perception about Dominos changed and hence the subjective
profits also varied. To sustain the long term profits in the market Dominos had to work hard in
redefining its positioning in the minds of the customers.
For any business the first thing to do right is to choose a right segmenting variable like attitude
behaviour -lifestyle, culture, belief, habits etc. Most of the people would be surprised to see that
age, disposable income and family size are not the segmenting variable of Dominos. Infact the
segmenting variable of Dominos is OCCASION. They have segmented the market on the basis
of occasion so that people want a meal replacement for change in mood, party, spending time
with family and kids, spending time with elderly people.
So dominos business is providing a high quality tasty food in meal replacement sector. When
Dominos entered into Indian market, they tried to establish in a pizza category. First of their
communications and tag line was based on the attitude that whenever and wherever you are
hungry just call dominos. HUNGRY KYA? in one of the initial advertisements Mallika
Sherawat was the model. So some of the advertisements did fairly well and they established
points of parity with other players.
Soon they realized that for home delivery model, time is the parameter which most of the
customers value so they created a points of difference by new value proposition that is 30
Minutes or free. Paresh Rawal featured ad in monsoon of Mumbai was a real hit and got many
national and international awards. So after some time, when Dominos business was not growing
as fast as they expected they did lot of in depth and focus interviews where they found that it is
not fast service which is the value driven parameter for customers, it is Taste which people want
to pay for along with value for money. So once again as per the customers expectations
Dominos introduced pan size pizza worth rupees thirty five and it all along changed the
perception of people that Dominos is a value for money.
So now responding to the customers reactions of valuing taste as the foremost reason to order
pizza at home or office, they spent huge amount of money in R&D, hired new chefs on
Dominos payroll and introduced various new variants in the Indian market like Cheese crust,
Chinese pizza, other regional flavours etc. Some of them were instant hit and some could not do
well. But one thing was very clear that constant innovation in product would only make a
company better.
So now the company has established three core values namely 30 Minute, free delivery, taste
and Value for money, with once again new positioning. KHUSIYON KI HOME
DELIVERY is a new tag line and by virtue of this proposition, they could incorporate any of the
core value in a same tagline. This is a beauty of any successful brand CONSISTENCY. The
brand which is consistent over a period of time across product line is there for long time.
