(Reuters) - Domino's Pizza Inc, the biggest U.S. pizza delivery chain, reported slower same-store sales growth in the third quarter, sending its shares down 3 percent in pre-market trade.
The company's comp-store sales growth at its own restaurants slumped to 8.4 percent from 13.8 percent a year earlier. Still, it beat the 6.6 percent rise expected by analysts polled by research firm Consensus Metrix.
