US ambassador in Sofia James Warlick tried his hand at pizza-making, serving up a special to journalists at the January 7 opening of Domino's Pizza
US pizza delivery corporation Domino's Pizza plans to have three restaurants in Bulgaria at the end of 2011, Nikola Nikolov and Lazgin Majid, the firm's representatives for the local market, said.
The company's flagship restaurant in Bulgaria, in Sofia's Krasno Selo neighbourhood, opened on January 7 2011.
"This year we plan to open two more units, with one of them already undergoing renovations. It is at the entrance of the South Park area," Nikolov said.
Domino's Pizza also intends to open outlets in other major cities in the country, Nikolov and Majid said.
The chain's first restaurant in the country was expected to open in October 2010, but was postponed because of problems with equipment deliveries.
Domino's Pizza, owned by Boston-based private equity firm Bain Capital, operates in Bulgaria through franchise agreements as it does in parts of the US and in all overseas markets.
