Domino’s, Pizza Hut cut rates

Domino’s, the country’s largest pizza company, has nearly halved rates on large pizzas to compete with smaller rivals GoPizza, Tossin and Mojo Pizza. Prices of vegetarian large pizzas are down from Rs 799 to Rs 499 and those of non-veg large pizzas are from Rs 919 to Rs 549. Smaller QSR companies have a tighter control on costs and rely on creating a fan club on social media and not on mass advertising.
