Oper­at­ing Rev­enues for Q1 FY19 stood strong at ₹8,551 mil­lion, rep­re­sent­ing a growth of 26.0 per­cent over Q1 FY18, and a se­quen­tial growth of 9.6 per­cent over the pre­ced­ing quar­ter. The growth was on the back of a strong Same Store Growth (SSG) of 25.9 per­cent in Domino’s Pizza. Over­all prof­itabil­ity also im­proved, with EBITDA for Q1 FY19 com­ing in at ₹1421 mil­lion at 16.6 per­cent of rev­enue, a growth of 78.5 per­cent over Q1 FY18.

In ad­di­tion, Dunkin’ Donuts made sus­tained progress to­wards its goal of break­ing even with a slew of in­no­va­tions that drove sales growth and which was ac­com­pa­nied by dis­ci­plined cost man­age­ment.
