This Sunday, September 23, we’re carrying out the biggest event in our history—National Pizza Day. At most of our stores in more than 150 cities in Russia, we’ll be selling pizzas for just 100 rubles a pie (about $1.50).

On this day, most of our partners, managers, marketers, analysts, and other typical office inhabitants will be helping our teams in the pizza shops—taking orders or making and delivering pizzas. I’ll be lending a hand in our first corporate pizzeria in downtown Moscow from 11am to 2pm. Stop by at Novoslobodkaya 46 and I’ll personally make a pizza for you!

50 Awesome Pizza Places in the UK

Wow! Dodo Pizza Brighton has made it to the “50 Awesome Pizza Places in the UK” list.  Our pizza there is super delish indeed.

“Don’t worry, Dodo Pizza doesn’t try and imagine a world without pizza. Quite the opposite, they have a pizza for every taste and occasion. What’s most impressive is the live kitchen webcam that runs 24-hours a day, so you can watch them make you pizza in real time along with live updates. Welcome to the future! Their best slice? The Meats – Bacon, red onion, pepperoni, marinara sauce, mozzarella and chicken.”

Dodo Pizza is growing. It’s growing so rapidly that sometimes we can hardly believe it. Our company is already the number one chain in Russia, and our chain also works in China, the US, the UK, Romania, Lithuania, and Estonia. Pretty soon, we’ll be open for business in Belarus. And next in line: Poland.

Before launching in Poland, we need to gather as much data about this new market as possible. Its food culture, job market, real estate, marketing trends, construction, law, taxes—everything related to QSR operations might be valuable.

Now we realize that we need to find a food expert. Maybe it will be a restaurateur, chef, or prospective franchisee. Someone from the industry, living in Poland, who (in the best case) can also speak Polish and Russian.

Someone who will be able to help us at this important stage—studying the market. We want to learn about everything—from taste preferences in Poland to supply chain data.

If you know someone who fits this description or if you are ready to share this knowledge yourself, please reach out to Vladimir Goretsky at v.goretskiy@dodopizza.com. His team will be opening our shops in Poland.

Dodo Pizza Tallinn

How successful can Dodo Pizza be outside Russia? Our branch in Estonia might give you a hint. In 2017, Dodo’s first pizza shop in Tallinn ranked as the tenth pizzeria in the chain in terms of sales. It made $1,185,356 last year.

In June 2018, our partner opened another pizza shop in Tallinn—just for delivery to start. Dine-in was launched in August. And last month, in the third month of its operations, our second location in Estonia’s capital saw €58,971 in sales. Which made it profitable right away.

Usually, it takes a pizza shop six to nine months to reach the break-even point. Kudos to our partner, Viktor Ivanov!

We’ve just opened for delivery on Prospekt Bolshevikov in Saint Petersburg. For me, it’s a special location. I vividly recall how I used to commute to the subway station at Prospekt Bolshevikov on those chilly “Petersburgish” mornings.  

In December 2010, before opening the very first Dodo Pizza, I worked for a few days in a Papa John’s that was located in that area. I had a dream—to open my own pizza shop and build it around an IT system.

At the beginning of 2011, I went back to Syktyvkar, my home city, with no money and some debt. Finally, in spring, a small pizzeria was opened in a basement. In the beginning, it was operating only for delivery. Now we deliver on Prospekt Bolshevikov. :)

Dine-in at Bolshevikov 2 is opening a bit later. It will be quite homey.
