We are excited to be a part of this cultural phenomenon and have turned about half of our restaurants to 100% vegetarian for nine days. This initiative demonstrates that while we are a global brand, we are conscious about addressing the specific needs of the consumers’ in India. Also, it was fun to test the versatility of Pizza while coming up with the ‘Navaratra Pizza’.
Mr. S. Murugan Narayanaswamy, Senior Vice President – Marketing, Domino’s Pizza India, said," At Domino’s Pizza, we have always believed in creating new occasions for pizza consumption. During Navratras, there is so much care consumers take on what they eat thus limiting food choices available. Domino’s has launched the Navratra Pizza, a first of its kind innovation, to make available another tasty meal option to consumers during this festive period. The product has been conceptualized and developed keeping in mind consumer food preferences during this period. The Sabudana topping and the usage of Rock salt are some examples. We expect most consumers to try this novel offering during Navratras.
