Introduction
Just a decade ago, it might have been hard to imagine that the takeout food of choice for millions of Indians would be a baked good of Italian origin. But since then, calling for a Pizza has become quite the urban ritual, though its possible that many of the pies that are rushed homes wouldnt be recognized in the country of origin. Like most consumer brand successes, pizza has been customized for the Indian market, from its toppings to its delivery models. And in this fast-growing category, its bunch of home grown brands that have turned into stars, leading the way for MNCs to pick up the crumbs from the table. Around 70% of Indias population of more than one billion belongs to the young generation who are more inclined to fast-food joints. The Fast food industry sees this as a strong rationale for its expansion in the market.

1.1 Background
1.1.1 Overview of the Fast Food Sector in India Known for being a country in which home-cooked meals are highly valued, India prides itself on being a society in which food traditions stand strong. Yet fast food restaurants of Burgers and Pizza have not only made an entry into the market but have prospered. There is also growing demand for more sophisticated options among young Indian professionals and families who enjoy Sunday brunches and discovering new restaurants. The expansion of fast food chains into Indias smaller cities and towns and the demand for premium brands across major cities has resulted in strong growth in recent years. Whats more, India is the worlds second largest producer of food next to China, and according to McKinsey & Co, the retail food sector in India is likely to grow to $150 billion in 2025. The company has the potential to be a leader in the food and agricultural sectors, according to the Food Industry of India, and one of the most promising sub-sectors is fast food. This situation creates a large number of fast-growing food markets. The fast food industry in India has evolved with the changing lifestyles of the young Indian population. The diversity of Indian cuisine poses logistical problems when comes to handling. Hence it is common to serve different cuisines at different counters within the same premises. Presence of a large vegetarian population, who eschew non-vegetarian

food, has given rise to outlets which exclusively serve vegetarian fast food. 1.1.2 Overview of Dominos Pizzas Dominos Dominos Pizza, Inc., through its subsidiaries, operates as a pizza delivery company in the United States and internationally. The company sells and delivers pizzas under the Dominos Pizza brand name. As of January 3, 2010, it operated a network of 466 company-owned stores located in the United States; and 8,533 franchise stores located in 50 states and approximately 60 international markets.

Domino's Pizza opened its first store in India in January 1996, at New Delhi. Today Domino's Pizza India has grown into a countrywide network of more than 300 stores with a team of over 9,000 people.
