While some may attribute Domino’s failure to its brazen attempt to infiltrate the home of pizza with American fare, ePizza said it busted due to competition from food delivery apps.
The court filing said the Milan-based company faced “unprecedented competition” from local restaurants that started using services such as Glovo, Just Eat and Deliveroo during the pandemic.
Domino’s said in a document attached to the court filing that iPizza’s troubles last year “resulted from a significantly increased level of competition in the food delivery market for organized chains and ‘mom & pop’ restaurants that deliver food for a living.”
He said that he is also facing problems Once pandemic restrictions were eased and customers started visiting sit-down restaurants again.
A Milan court granted the company a 90-day grace period during which its creditors were not allowed to demand repayment or take over its assets. It expired in early July.
As of early 2020, ePizza operates 23 stores in Italy and six through sub-franchise partners.
Neither Domino’s nor ePizza immediately responded to CNN Business’ request for comment.
