A historic day!

This is Bauyrzhan Sadykov. Bau was born is Kazakhstan, but for the last 13 years, he’s been living in China. He came to Beijing to study at a university. He couldn’t understand a word in Chinese back then. For the last two years, Bau has been working with Dodo—managing Dodo Pizza in Yantai and Hangzhou. Now he is responsible for the development of our entire business in China. He is holding a preliminary lease deal for our new pizza shop in Hangzhou. We’ve just come to terms with the landlord and left a deposit to secure the deal. We’re launching our corporate (company-owned) pizzeria in China. It will be a pilot concept with no cashiers. All of the orders will go through our app on WeChat. Why are we doing this? I’ll tell you about it in another post. Stay tuned.

Don’t want to brag, but… it looks like Dodo Pizza has become one of the fastest-growing pizza chains in the world. 🏆

In 12 months (July 2017 to June 2018), our chain netted $162 million in system-wide sales—while a year ago the number was $70 million. This means that we saw a 131% growth 🔥 in year-over-year sales.

How fast is that? Let’s see.

Nation’s Restaurant News publishes a yearly ranking of the biggest chains in the States. This year, among the fastest-growing food service companies, the number one spot was occupied by MOD pizza. It showed an 80% ☝️ year-over-year growth. The next place belongs to Blaze Pizza with a 51% growth.

MOD pizza was founded in 2008—just three years earlier than Dodo Pizza. It has around 330 units—close to what we have. And while MOD’s almost twice as big as we are in terms of sales ($270 million), we’ve been growing 1.6 times faster, and 2.5 times faster than the second-best chain in the US.

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.

The story of a world-shaking innovative enterprise should start in a garage. The story of a flying pizza is no exception to this rule. One day in the spring of 2014, a police department in Syktyvkar, a city in Northwestern Russia, got a call from a concerned person who reported that a few suspicious young men occupied a garage in his neighborhood. They were making a lot of noise and were bothering all the respectable citizens living in the area.
