Shares in a national pizza chain - which has four branches in the Bay area, have soared by 11%.

The fast-food firm said a record number of store openings in the 3 months to late September helped boost total sales by 11-point-6 percent.

Its digital sales were also up - with around 140 online orders made per minute on the last Saturday of last month.

The chain has stores 108 stores in the north west - including four in The Bay area: Barrow, Lancaster, Morecambe and Kendal.

Last month the chain opened its 1,000th UK store.

CEO David Wild said: “From just one store in Luton to 1,000 in just over 30 years is a remarkable feat and testament to the hard work and commitment of everyone at Domino’s. 

"1,000 stores is a major milestone for our business and we’re extremely proud. 

"We look forward to opening more stores, creating more jobs and delivering more pizza over the next 30 years and beyond.”
