HOUSTON – ARCO Design/Build recently broke ground on a new supply chain centre for the Domino’s pizza chain developed by National Property Holdings in Katy, Texas.

“We’re honored to work with Domino’s and National Property Holdings to build this new supply chain center in Katy,” said Eric Safko, vice-president of ARCO Design/Build.

“This project uniquely leverages our design-build approach and light industrial food manufacturing expertise. Our entire team enjoys working with Domino’s, National Property Holdings and the City of Katy and looks forward to delivering a quality facility upon completion.”

The 59,000-square-foot building will produce fresh pizza dough for more 300 Domino’s stores located throughout the region. It will feature a variety of automated technology, including ingredient batching, mixing and portioning, weight adjustment, tray stacking, and spiral coolers, which will help produce 20,000 trays of dough balls per day. The new facility will create about 85 open positions and is set to open in late 2020.

“The continued growth of Domino’s in the U.S. has created a demand for additional supply chain capacity,” said Stu Levy, executive vice-president of Domino’s Supply Chain Services.

“This centre in Katy will manufacture our fresh pizza dough and also serve as a warehouse and distribution centre for our stores in South Texas and the parts of Louisiana.  We look forward to opening this centre, bringing even more jobs to the local community and ensuring our stores can continue to provide a great customer experience.”
