Success story

Alexander Strib, Dodo Pizza franchisee in Klaipeda and Vilnius, Lithuania.

An accomplished software developer, Alexander Strib worked at OpenTable UK when he came across the Dodo Pizza founder’s blog “Sila Uma” (“power of the intellect” in Russian) and started reading it. The blog resonated strongly with Alexander and he decided that Dodo Pizza is something that he would be interested in being a part of.

Already at that time Strib was contemplating opening his own Dodo Pizza somewhere in Europe. But the franchise was not ready for export so he ended up working at Dodo Pizza as a software developer. He personally participated in development of Dodo IS, which he would later be using at his first store in Klaipeda, Lithuania.

Today, Alexander is the owner of the master franchise for Lithuania and Latvia.
“Together with the rest of the company, I worked for about one year to perfect Dodo IS. So I have a very good understanding of its’ nature and immense potential. Moreover, I know the people behind the product. They are a great dedicated team of talented individuals. Dodo Pizza is my first franchisee experience so I can’t really compare it to whatever else there is on the market. I can only say that I am still overwhelmed by the thoroughness and meticulousness of their approach. So for me it’s not just a great product but also an exemplary business relationship that also transcends formality. But strictly in practical terms, well, the Dodo Pizza franchise is the complete package where not a single detail has been overlooked.”
