The last of the 29 Domino's branches in Italy has closed. The chain had planned to open 880 stores in the country. The closure comes after a year-and-a-half of declining sales in the U.S. The company has a history of closing stores in Italy.

In January, its Italian franchising partner cited the increased competition as having hurt expansion plans. In an email, Federico Tozzi, the executive director of the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce, said Domino's could not successfully challenge the country's existing pizza sources. "I believe in Italy there are so many great pizza places," Tozzi said.
