Domino's plans to sell its remaining eight local restaurants to franchisees at a later date and said it has closed two restaurants, in Hiram and Hampton.
In June, Atlanta-based NRD Holdings LLC, one of the country's biggest operators of franchised fast-food restaurants, purchased 23 Domino's Pizza restaurants in Florida. The purchase included 17 restaurants in Jacksonville and six in Orlando. With the deal, NRD is now among the top 25 Domino’s franchisees in the United States.
As of the 2nd quarter, Domino's has a network of 9,436 franchised and company-owned stores in the U.S. and more than 70 international markets.
