Domino’s to get a pizza the action
3:13pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
RESIDENTS have shared their views as an international pizza chain prepares to set up shop in town.
Domino’s Pizza is preparing to open its ‘Ready2Go’ outlet at the Blackburn Extra services at Junction 4 of the M65 tomorrow. The store will employ six full-time staff.
Keyvan Fani, co-owner of the Godfather takeaway and Amalfi restaurant on Bolton Road, Darwen, which opened 25 years ago, said: “Darwen has an established history of family-run pizza restaurants and takeaways which I think are valued by the community.
“I wish them luck but I’m not sure people will choose a franchise over an established independent.”
Coun Trevor Maxfield, deputy chair of Darwen Town Council, said: “I don’t think that they pose much of a threat to town centre businesses and will probably get most of their customers who are passing through the service station to somewhere else.”
Jeremy Davies, franchisee for the new store, said: “We are looking forward to opening this new concept store and excited to reach out to a new market.”
