Jubilant FoodWorks to look beyond Dominos

New Delhi: Fast food chain operator Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd, earlier known as Dominos India Pvt. Ltd, is considering expansion in its brand portfolio by bringing more international food brands to the country.

Jubilant FoodWorks which is the master franchisee of Dominos Pizza in India is currently holding discussions with several international food brands.

“Since inception, we have been restricted only to Dominos. But now the plan is to add more brands and services to our offering," Ajay Kaul, chief executive officer, Jubilant FoodWorks, told Mint.

“We will get food brands other than pizza to India in foreseeable future," Kaul said, without sharing specifics. Besides bringing in new brands, the company is also looking at working on new distribution channels such as airports and railway stations.

The company plans to add around 65 new outlets across India in the current year. Currently, the company has around 270 outlets across the country. “The plan is to populate the cities where we are currently present and also enter smaller towns at the same time. For instance, in the last 18 months, we have opened stores in 23 new cities," Kaul added.

The promoters of HT Media Ltd, which publishes Mint, and promoters of Jubilant FoodWorks are closely related.
