A large majority of the company is owned by Jack Cowin through his company Competitive Foods Australia, the largest restaurant franchise restaurant group in the country.
Domino's Pizza Enterprises owns and operates more than 690 stores in Australia, New Zealand, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the Principality of Monaco. The company has a store expansion target of more than 1,600 stores worldwide.

Domino's Pizza Australia began in Red Hill, Brisbane, in 1978 as Silvio's Dial-A-Pizza, established by brothers Silvio and Fel Bevacqua. Silvio's Dial-A-Pizza began Australia's first home delivery service in 1980. By 1993, Silvio's had over 70 locations. In 1993, Silvio's bought the master franchise for the international Domino's brand in Australia and New Zealand. Between 1995 and 1996, all of the Silvio's and Domino's groups merged and Silvio's was re-branded as Domino's by Don Meij in 1996.
On Monday, 18 December 2006 it was announced that Domino’s Pizza Australia New Zealand would change its name to Domino's Pizza Enterprises to reflect its global reach.
In January 2007, it was reported by The Sydney Morning Herald that Domino's Pizza Enterprises had purchased a 17-shop chain in the Netherlands and eight shops in Belgium for an undisclosed amount and comes six months after Domino's Pizza Enterprises purchased the master franchises for the two countries.
Dominos announced a 30% drop in profit for the full 2007 financial year on a 33.1% increase in revenue. Dominos Corporate Developments contributed $2.5 million in profit, highlighting the continued reliance on new store openings. Same store sales decreased in Australia with big concerns regarding operations in Melbourne, Victoria. Number of corporate owned stores remains high at 27% in relation to competitors Eagle Boys 1% and Pizza Haven 4%.
In October 2007, it was announced that they will expand and add at least 35 stores in Europe every year until it hits the target of 1000 stores.
As of August 2009, Dominos became the number one food and beverage retailer online in Australia, with 22.5 per cent of sales now being generated in the online channel. Dominos CEO Don Meij advised the company would open 40 to 50 new stores to its retail chain during this year.
