Domino's Pizza Earnings: What to Watch

YUM

Domino's (NYSE: DPZ) is set to post its earnings results before the market opens on Thursday, July 19. The restaurant chain is facing elevated expectations on the part of investors, who've made the stock one of the industry's best performers so far in 2018. But will the pizza delivery giant live up to those high hopes? Domino's relies on a few key advantages to keep its sales growth running ahead of peers. That expansion project relies on steady growth at existing locations, so investors will want to see comparable-store sales stay within executives' target range of 3% to 6% after reaching 5% last quarter.

Chipotle's CEO Is Drawing From his Taco Bell Playbook

YUM CMG

BloombergJune 28, 2018. If imitation is the highest form of flattery, Taco Bell should be feeling pretty good. That’s because Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. -- its biggest competitor in the U.S. Mexican-inspired dining segment -- is taking pages directly from its playbook as it tries to revamp its image. And no wonder: it was Chipotle’s new CEO that wrote the script during his years leading the fast-food rival. From digital expansion to a loyalty program, Chief Executive Officer Brian Niccol is implementing many of the same strategies he did at Taco Bell, and he’s hoping for similar success -- but without giving up the healthier halo that Chipotle’s built for itself. After struggling to bring back diners following multiple illness outbreaks, Chipotle has recently started to see better results under Niccol, who took the helm in March.

Pizza Hut Promises Antibiotic-Free Chicken by 2022

YUM

Brands, Inc. (NYSE:YUM) — announced that it will only carry antibiotic-free chicken by 2022 as part of an initiative to be more health conscious about what its consumers eat. The pizza chain said on Tuesday that it was planning on slowly transitioning to chicken that is entirely raised free of antibiotics within four years of today. “Today’s announcement to no longer serve chicken raised with antibiotics by 2022 demonstrates our commitment to serve food that not only tastes great, but that customers can feel good about eating,” Marianne Radley, Pizza Hut’s chief brand officer, said in a statement. Research, which includes a 2013 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, reveals evidence that antibiotic overuse is contributing to the rise of super-strong bacteria, or superbugs, that are immune to antibiotics as their immune systems have evolved to overcome bacteria. If the overuse of bacteria on animals continues, this means that we may soon live in a place where we can no longer treat infections using antibiotics, for both humans animals.

Pizza Hut is making a major change to beat out its competitors (YUM)

YUM

Pizza Hut is making a major change to keep up with competitors (YUM). "Today's announcement to no longer serve chicken raised with antibiotics by 2022 demonstrates our commitment to serve food that not only tastes great, but that customers can feel good about eating," Marianne Radley, Pizza Hut's chief brand officer, said in a statement. Research, including a 2013 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, offers evidence that antibiotic overuse is contributing to the rise of super-strong bacteria, or superbugs, that no longer respond to antibiotics. If the overuse continues, it could mean a future in which we can no longer treat infections using antibiotics. As a result, many major chains have worked to transition away from meat — especially chicken — raised with antibiotics. In 2016, Papa John's and Papa Murphy's, a take-and-bake pizza chain, announced they had transitioned to poultry raised without antibiotics. And last year, KFC said its US poultry suppliers had been given until the end of 2018 to stop raising chickens using antibiotics important to human medicine.

Antibiotics have been a hot topic for pizza and chicken chains recently. "Today's announcement to no longer serve chicken raised with antibiotics by 2022 demonstrates our commitment to serve food that not only tastes great, but that customers can feel good about eating," Marianne Radley, Pizza Hut's chief brand officer, said in a statement. Research, including a 2013 report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, offers evidence that antibiotic overdose is contributing to the rise of super-strong bacteria that no longer respond to antibiotics. If the problem is allowed to continue, then it could mean a future in which we can no longer treat infections using antibiotics, thanks to the rise of superbugs. As a result, many major chains have worked to transition away from meat — especially chicken — that's raised with antibiotics. In 2016, Papa John's and take-and-bake pizza chain Papa Murphy's announced they had completed their transition to poultry raised without antibiotics.
