A large number of members of the business community and the Chamber of Commerce attended the ribbon cutting.
Store Owner Cyndie Kirk said the move to a new location was necessary so they could begin delivery to Enoch City. Domino’s Corporation mandates a store be located within a 10-minute drive of its farthest delivery point, and Kirk said the traffic lights around their old location on Main Street made it impossible to make it to Enoch in the required time.
Shift Manager Mark Scott, a Southern Utah University student, said the easier access to Interstate 15 also makes the new location a better fit for them to best serve their customers.
Kirk said the Cedar City Domino’s continues to have a full menu consisting of specialty and artisan pizzas and breadsticks as well as sandwiches, buffalo wings, pasta and dessert.
Domino’s is also available for catering events, as well as classroom demonstrations. Kirk said she has performed demonstrations at many elementary schools and the kids love it.
Domino’s employs approximately 15 people, all but one of whom are students at SUU.
Kirk has owned the Cedar City Domino’s for almost four years and has owned two other Dominoes stores in Toole for 14 years. She said she has been working for Domino’s for 25 years and is the fastest pizza maker in Utah and the 15th fastest pizza maker in the world.
“I can start with nothing in my hands, not even the pizza dough, and can make a pepperoni pizza to spec in 22 seconds,” she said.
The Cedar City store will be having grand re-opening specials throughout the month of March and will be sending post cards in the mail. They also welcome the community to call the store and find out about the daily and weekly specials.
