Domino's Australia and New Zealand CEO Nick Knight said they have also seen an increase in demand for its Zero Contact Pick-up and Delivery.

"And it's no surprise, with parents becoming full time workers and teachers overnight, people

cancelling holiday plans, and friends unable to celebrate milestones and special occasions

together - pizza is a welcome distraction and treat for all," Mr Knight said.

Domino's has also changed its regular safety and hygiene practices to include thermometer testing for team members, hand sanitiser for customers and physical barriers to assist social

distancing in its stores.

Domino's is currently the largest pizza chain in Australia and New Zealand, with about 30 per cent of the $4 billion pizza market, beating Pizza Hut and Crust Pizza.
