A new Domino’s Pizza branch has officially opened in an East Lancashire town.

The new shop, in Berry Lane, Longridge, has created 25 jobs for people in the area, including pizza chefs, in store team members and delivery drivers.

The takeaway is open seven days a week from 11am until 11pm serving up freshly prepared Domino’s pizzas and sides.

The new Longridge branch is being run by franchise partner Saad Hussain Usmani, who is enrolled on the Domino’s Homegrown Heroes programme.

The programme offers current and former Domino’s employees the opportunity to own a Domino’s outlet and become part of its franchisee system.

Saad started his career with Domino’s four days after arriving in the UK from Pakistan in 2011, working at the London Leyton store as a pizza maker.

From there he quickly worked his way through the ranks to become group operations manager, overseeing six stores across London.

Inspired by fellow homegrown hero, Kirat Toor, Saad decided his next challenge was to become a franchise partner of Domino’s and run his own store in Longridge.

Saad said: “It has been an extremely proud moment for me opening my first store with Domino’s.

“My journey with Domino’s over the past 13 years has been filled with so many amazing moments, and I am very excited for this new chapter.

“We are very thankful to the kind support from the Longridge community and look forward to supporting them wherever we can.

“We have already recruited some fantastic members of the community and are still on the lookout for delivery drivers.”

More than 90 per cent of Domino’s store managers and area managers started out as a delivery driver or a pizza maker.
