    Because pizza restaurants have some of the highest profit margins in the fast food business.

    It only cost Dominos $2.75 to make a pie. Average customer pays around $15+ for two pies. That profits taken in, per customer, is high and I haven even started talking about side items or other variations of the pies, such as breadsticks, cheese sticks, desert, pasta bowls, etc.

    As such, bread sticks. Dominos charges $5 for a single order of bread sticks with light seasoning and side sauce. The cost for Dominos to make breadsticks is less than 50cents. Its just pizza dough cut into 8 strips topped with a salt based season. A side cup of side marinara sauce costs 2cents. Side items usually have a higher profit margin than the main/base items.

    Pizza places are expensive because they can do it. There are no cheaper alternatives with pizza places like it is with burger joints. Retail franchise pizza places don't survive in places like New York because the competition is high. A New York mom and pop pizza store will beat out Dominos/Pizza Hut/Papa Johns any day based on a lower price point and taste. Mom and pop stores are able to sell slices and if you've had a NY slice before, their huge. 3 large slices will be cheaper than 1 Dominos pies.

    I've found this too. All I can think is that they're selling pizzas at those prices because people are paying those prices for them. If people changed their supplier, their takings would drop and they would have to drop their prices in order to win back customers.
