Domino’s Pizza opened its first international store 27 years ago and is now set to open its 5,000th location outside of the US.

The pizza delivery franchise is celebrating this achievement by presenting three stores with the symbolic title of Domino’s 5,000th international store. The three stores will launch in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Cologne, Germany; and Penang, Malaysia.

J. Patrick Doyle, Domino’s Pizza President and CEO, said: “This is a significant milestone in the history of our brand. Earlier this year, we saw our international store count exceed that of the US and this brings us ever closer to that magic number of 10,000 stores. I’m looking forward to celebrating the opening of our 10,000th store worldwide, which could happen sometime this fall.”
