News concerning the expansion of Apple Pay has been coming at a rapid pace today. This morning, the service launched in Canada and expanded to Tesco Bank and TSB in the U.K. Then, Apple revealed that more than 100 new banks and credit unions in the United States now support its mobile payment solution. Now, Apple has announced that the service will soon be supported at Dominos and Cinnabon, two popular food chains in the United States.

The AP reports Cinnabon will begin adding Apple Pay to all of its U.S. locations next year, while Domino’s, the popular pizza chain, will support it by the end of 2015 in company-owned stores. This news follows the announcement earlier this year that Starbucks will begin a pilot program this year for supporting Apple Pay in its retail locations, with a full rollout taking place next year.
KFC is also expected to launch support for Apple in the Spring of 2016. Likewise, Chili’s is said to be installing iPads at tables in its restaurants to allow users to pay via Apple Pay directly from their seat.
Apple Pay has been expanding rather quickly over recent months. The service launched in Canada this morning and will launch in Australia later this week. These new countries follow the launch of Apple Pay in the U.K. a few months ago. Meanwhile, Tim Cook has proclaimed 2015 the “year of Apple Pay.” Some retailers, however, have questioned the uptake of the platform.
