Bain Capital employs some of the smartest financial and strategic professionals in the USA. Bain Capital originally funded Dominos Pizza back in the late 1990’s and reaped a hefty profit when it went public in 2004. Now, Bain Capital is jumping back in with Dominos by acquiring the Japanese master franchisee, who delivers pizzas that often cost over $40 in Japan. With Bain’s history in Dominos, I would bet that this is a smart investment.
Dominos franchise has always been hot favorite for franchisers. With Bain investing more capital will definitely reap more benefits.
$40 for a pizza in Japan is ridiculously high. Food in Japan is more expensive, but a typical restaurant lunch or dinner would cost between $10-20. I doubt many would spend twice that for average American pizza.
Fascinating. Bain has some sharp people. My gut would have me doing a real double take on this, but Bain sees an opportunity. Got to got with the pros here, though I would be more confident if Mitt Romney was still on board. Go Bain...
