Default Anyone in Memphis, TN, Oxford, MS or Southaven, MS?

Apparently the massive Russian pizza chain Dodo Pizza has opened up three stores in (where else?) these three cities. Go and have some Dodo Pizza and report on what it tastes like. I'm curious.

One of the US locations:



What the hundreds of Russian locations looks like:









What the pizza looks like:








I await full reports of ex-Soviet pizza with pics. Tokyosmash, despite our recent differences, I thought you could be the Soviet pizza guinea pig, but TN is larger than I thought and you're apparently too far.

Tomato slices, mushrooms and shrimp?

Maybe the bird in its name is a foreshadowing.

Olives!

It's the biggest pizza chain in Russia currently.

Back home, Dodo Pizza has recently overtaken Domino’s, Papa John’s, and Pizza Hut to become Russia’s market leader in pizza delivery – all this from a company that is just six years old. The man in charge of this success? Fedor Ovchinnikov.

“When I founded Dodo Pizza, I set out to combine technology, the Internet, and pizza to revolutionise the food industry,” recalls Fedor, CEO of Dodo Pizza. “My idea was to create an IT company that makes pizza. A next-generation pizza franchise.”

Fedor had a bold vision for the future of pizza delivery. Even before the first Dodo Pizza store opened, he was investing in the chain’s proprietary digital system, Dodo IS. Fedor’s dream was to create a more efficient pizza delivery model, built on the cloud, which could be easily scaled through franchising. As it turned out, Dodo IS was the secret sauce that would propel the Dodo Pizza franchise to global success.

“Today, it’s as easy to open a new restaurant on the Dodo IS system as it is to set up a new Facebook account,” Fedor says. “From China to the US, all users can view data in all stores in real time. We can make informed business decisions based on accurate sales forecasting, from staffing rotas, to how many kilos of tomatoes need to be sliced every day.”

As Dodo Pizza expanded, so did the capabilities of Dodo IS. Today, every part of the business from individual pizza orders, to marketing, to warehouse management, are managed through the platform. The system is also absolutely free to franchisees, making it easier to find entrepreneurs to partner with in new countries.

...

Dodo Pizza was launched the following year with $15,000 of funding. The company’s first investor was an avid reader of Fedor’s personal blog, where he recorded the ups-and-downs of his old bookselling business. Impressed by Fedor’s honesty, the investor decided to help fund his new venture.

Fast-forward to 2014, when Dodo Pizza completed the largest crowdfunding effort in Russia’s history. The company raised more than $2 million from 180 private investors, many of whom were IT professionals and engineers that recognised the potential of this new, technology-first franchising model. The money propelled the development of the Dodo IS and, as a result, the company’s rapid global expansion.

It certainly can be! Vodka and pickle juice shots are great for my heartburn.
