Having increased its sales by 131%, Dodo Pizza now has grounds to consider itself one of the fastest-growing pizza chains in the world.

The story of Dodo Pizza might look like a fairy tale.

Seven years ago, a dreamer from a small northern Russian city decided to create a global business. Owning no money, he had something more valuable—a prospective idea and his faith that it was possible to achieve his dream. He aimed to start a global pizza franchise built around a cloud IT system. He chose pizza because this product is known all over the globe, and pizza delivery is one of the most popular small businesses in the world.

He believed that even in...

This week, we’ve launched our first national ad campaign in Russia. It’s a huge step forward for the company, a new level, and on top of that, a great opportunity for our brand. Why?

It’s simple. Dodo Pizza has become the first brand to be promoted on national TV in the “pizza” category. Previously, our competitors aired their commercials only in regional blocks (for example, only in Moscow). Nobody did it across the country before us.

We’re investing a significant amount of money in this campaign—at least, for us. 100 million rubles—around $1.6 mln. We had to find the best...

It was a historic occurrence! Every Monday in the morning, all of our teams gather at our office for a half hour meetup. Usually, a few managers give speeches to bring everybody up to speed on the recent developments at the company. Sometimes, the floor is taken by our guests—usually our partners from other cities. But yesterday, we had the most unusual Monday meetup ever. For the first time in our history, our speaker gave his speech not in Russian, not even in English, but in German. It was Thomas Kochmann.

It’s time to sum up the results of 2017 for Dodo Pizza. The main point: we haven’t made it.

In the beginning of 2017, we publicly set an ambitious goal: end the year with 400 pizza shops in the chain. This number looked insane and fantastic, but we did the math and came up with a solid plan that made it look doable.

We have always been setting challenging goals to hit in order to push ourselves out of our comfort zone and come up with unconventional solutions. We’ve worked hard. We’ve done probably everything we could. But we didn’t succeed.
