East Lubbock Gets A Slice Of New Business

East Lubbock is now getting a slice of the pizza business. Domino's Pizza, the first pizza chain to operate and deliver in East Lubbock held its official ribbon cutting on Monday. The new location is only the third chain to open in the area.

"This is great, now we have one right here. I don't even mind coming to get it because it's close to my house," but East Lubbock Resident Ray Trevino doesn't have to. He can now get fresh pizza delivered to his door.

"There's really not too much business out here. So we figured it'd be a great chance to make some money, to improve the community, provide jobs for people," explains Assistant Manager Eli Foley.

That's including 25 employment opportunities for those living in East Lubbock, but it's the delivery option that has residents buzzing. "A group of people, a bunch of people in an area who don't have that service and who do have it now, so they're excited about it and I am too," says District Two City Councilman Floyd Price. He's enjoying the new location along with the rest of the community.

"Word's getting out, people are catching on so we're really getting a lot of calls so it's really going pretty well," explains Foley.

Price challenges other businesses to also 'set up shop' in the area. "We got a lot of land, lots of people. We got 32,000 people that will buy from you so put something over here so we can quit running across town all the time," says Floyd. This newest Domino's is located at 2808 parkway drive.

Here's some good news for the store, it was a top performer in last week's edition of NewsChannel 11's Food for Thought.

    Trump's demand puts further pressure on the Justice Department, which later Sunday asked its watchdog to expand an existing probe of FBI actions, as the White House combats the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation.
