Silvio's Dial-A-Pizza began Australia's first home delivery service in 1980. By 1993, Silvio's had over 70 locations. In 1993, Silvio's bought the master franchise for the Domino brand in Australia and New Zealand, and between 1995 and 1996, all of the Silvio and Domino activities merged. The company was re-branded as Domino's Pizza in 1996.
