Domino's is leaving pizza’s birthplace because of the poor reception from locals. No, not New Jersey or New York. It's in Italy, in the city of Naples, Italy. The chain has been in the U.S. for more than 50 years.

The popular U.S. pizza chain debuted in Italy in 2015 through a franchising agreement with ePizza SpA. Domino’s originally planned to open 880 locations in the country, but competition from local pizza shops curbed those plans. The company recently announced plans to close the last of its 29 branches in Italy.

Closing dates for the remaining spots have yet to be announced. Domino’s operates over 6,100 locations nationwide. Christopher Burch can be reached at cburch@njadvancemedia.com or on Twitter @ChrisBurch856. Have a tip? Tell us.
