Domino's Pizza is one of the world's biggest pizza chains with 8,773 stores across 60 countries employing approximately 170,000 people across the globe as of December 2008. In spite of the global financial meltdown in 2008, Domino's stood out as one such company that reported a strong growth in its international retail segment in the fiscal 2008. Analysts attributed the reasons for the growth of the company to its Master Franchise model of operations that allowed the company to diversify and minimize its risks in international markets while earning higher returns.
