  • Domino’s Pizza Inc's DPZ final lot of branches in Italy have lowered their shutters due to poor patronage, Bloomberg reported.
  • The company started its operations in Italy in 2015.
  • The brand could not withstand competition from local restaurants, which gained an advantage by expanding delivery services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Domino’s had run out of cash to manage its operations and sought protection from creditors.
