Britain’s most admired restaurant for the first time is Domino’s Pizza, purveyors of such delights as the Meatilicious and Tandoori Hot pizza. The London-listed arm of the global fast food chain operates a network of 758 franchised and company-owned stores in the UK, Ireland, Germany and now Switzerland. Online sales account for nearly 60% of orders. Last year’s winner McDonald’s is in second place. The sight of all those athletes queuing for a Big Mac and fries at its Olympic Village outlets must have gladdened the heart of UK CEO Jill McDonald. Down one to third is pub operator JD Wetherspoon, whose be-mulleted founder, Tim Martin, now has 863 pubs and almost 30,000 staff.
