Domino’s, the Michigan-based pizza restaurant chain, today announced plans to open a new processing facility in Lexington County. The company’s new project is slated to create 75 jobs.

Founded in 1960, Domino’s is the largest pizza company in the world based on global retail sales, with a significant business in both delivery and carryout pizza. Ranking among the world’s top public restaurant brands with an international enterprise of approximately 15,000 stores, Domino’s had global retail sales of more than $12.2 billion in 2017.

Located in West Columbia, S.C., the company plans to construct a new, 67,000-square-foot processing facility to supply dough, as well as other ingredients and supplies, to its regional franchise stores. Expected to come online in the second quarter of 2020, hiring is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2019. 

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project.

“This growth in our U.S. business has driven record-level volumes in our supply chain centers. Our investments in supply chain capacity, both to serve current demand and to support our growth plans going forward, are important to our company. South Carolina has been a great partner in this important process.” –Domino’s Supply Chain Services Executive Vice President Troy Ellis

“We’re excited to welcome an industry leader like Domino’s to South Carolina as they set up their new processing facility. Our state is known the world over as a state that can get any job done, and this announcement is just further proof of that.” –Gov. Henry McMaster
