Francisco Fajardo, manager of the franchise said that they are in the process of analyzing the logistics of supplying ingredients either by creating a distribution center in each country or by sending them from Guatemala.
Domino's used to operate mostly as an express delivery service, but the new owners will open restaurants with capacity for 50 to 75 people. They will start with a store in the east of San José, and another in the west of the city.
After the closing of nine locations in Costa Rica under Grupo Mozzarella, the parent company has already indicated that they are seeking a new partner to operate the franchise in Costa Rica.
Grupo Mozzarella operates the franchise in Honduras and Panama as well, where apparently their locations will continue functioning. However, employee lay-offs associated with the rise in the government mandated minimum wage are expected. The increase has been seriously questioned by Honduran businesses, which are mobilized against a decrease in their balances.
The franchise, which had nine restaurants, abruptly stopped its operations after accumulating $2 million in losses.
The article in Mipunto.com, citing the La Nacion daily as its source, indicated that "The closure of Domino's Pizza, which operated nine restaurants in San Jose and neighboring cities, occurred has the government of Costa Rica was adopting the "Shield Plan" to deal with the impact of the international economic crisis in a country that is very dependent on trade with the United States."
