Former Costa Coffee boss Dominic Paul appointed new boss of pizza group Domino’s
Former Costa Coffee Dominic Paul is to take over at takeaway pizza group Domino’s
Domino’s has picked a former Costa Coffee man as its boss.
Dominic Paul takes over at the takeaway pizza group after leading the coffee chain through its growth spurt ahead of its £3.9billion sale to Coca-Cola by former owner Whitbread last year.
While in that post he introduced a drive-through and Costa Express service while restructuring the coffee shop’s international arm.
Paul, who takes over from David Wild, will have to deal with a longrunning battle with unhappy franchisees, who have been asking for a bigger slice of profits.
He said: ‘I am hugely excited to be joining Domino’s.
It is a much-loved brand with great people and some of the best franchisees in the world.’
