Jubilant FoodWorks, operator of fast-food chains Domino’s Pizza and Dunkin’ Donuts, on Thursday reported a 63.01 per cent increase in its consolidated net profit at Rs 112.58 crore in the April-June quarter.
The company had posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 69.06 crore in the same quarter of the previous fiscal, Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd (JFL) said in a regulatory filing.
Its revenue from operations during the quarter stood at 40.51 per cent at Rs 1,255.09 crore as against Rs 893.18 crore in the year-ago period, it added.
”The increase in revenue was driven by like-for-like growth of 28.3 per cent. Dine-in and takeaway channels combined witnessed strong sequential growth, while momentum continued in the delivery channel,” said JFL in its earnings statement.
JFL’s total expenses during the quarter were 35.65 per cent higher at Rs 1,104.94 crore as compared to Rs 814.51 crore in the corresponding period a year ago.
During the quarter, JFL opened 58 new restaurants for Domino’s Pizza, adding 12 cities to its network.
It was operating a total number of 1,625 restaurants as of June 30, 2022, across 349 cities. The company had closed 3 restaurants for Dunkin’ Donuts, bringing the number down to 25.
JFL opened 2 restaurants and closed 6 restaurants of its new QSR Brands – Hong’s Kitchen and Ekdum!, reducing the total count to 20 by the end of the quarter.
During the quarter, in Sri Lanka, JFL registered system sales growth of 83 per cent and opened 1 new store taking the network strength to 36 stores, while in Bangladesh, system sales grew by 49 per cent, taking the store count to 10.
JFL is the exclusive master franchise to develop and operate the Domino’s Pizza brand in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal.
It also has the franchise rights of the American multinational chain of fried chicken fast food restaurants ‘Popeyes’ for the Indian market and opened two new stores.
JFL chairman Shyam S Bhartia and co-chairman Hari S Bhartia said this quarter’s results were driven by strong demand, a marked resurgence in dine-in consumption and cost management in the wake of a high inflationary environment.
