This business plan outlines the proposed expansion of the Dominos franchise to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and explains why revenue opportunities in Saudi Arabia are significant. The paper discusses two primary potential cultural hurdles that are Sharia laws that pertain to gender and Islamic dietary restrictions, but suggests ways to overcome them. The paper then explains how differences in business practices in Saudi Arabia will necessitate specific training in certain customs, expectations and cultural awareness on the part of the Dominos representatives and also examines foreign exchange and legal issues for a foreign company in Saudi Arabia.

From the Paper:

"There are two primary potential cultural hurdles anticipated in connection with the proposed expansion of the Dominos Pizza franchise in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: (1) Sharia Laws that pertain to gender, and (2) Islamic dietary restrictions that prohibit the consumption of any foods containing pig meat, pig meat byproducts, or that have been in contact with pig meat or byproducts (Angelo & Vladimir, 2004). However, it is anticipated that both of those hurdles can be surmounted without significantly adversely affecting the prospect for the viability of this business plan.
"With respect to the first issue, Islamic Sharia Law, which is the prevailing law of the land in Saudi Arabia, is highly restrictive of women's rights, to an extent that would be considered absolutely impermissible in the United States and other Western democracies. For example, Saudi women may not drive automobiles and must wear traditional clothing that covers almost all of their bodies and their hair (Angelo & Vladimir, 2004). On one hand, Western women are not necessarily expected to follow the dress codes, but they would be well advised to dress very conservatively and to avoid showing any bare skin. Western women should not expect to be able to drive in Saudi Arabia (Angelo & Vladimir, 2004)."
