Second Salisbury Domino’s Pizza location opens

SALISBURY — The city’s second Domino’s Pizza restaurant opened in Avalon Plaza Shopping Center over the weekend.

The 2,400-square-foot location will house a “signature store,” which includes a drive-thru and an eat-in area, as well as the corporate office for Team Carolinas.

Suzanne Swidler, property manager for Juniper Properties, which is also owned by Team Carolinas, said the first Salisbury Domino’s was successful but didn’t serve all the east side of Salisbury.

She said with the new location, customers will “get their product hotter and quicker,” and it also will serve parts of Rockwell.

The pickup window is something Swidler is excited about, especially as a mother. The drive-thru will be convenient for people like her because she won’t have to take her kids out of the car to pick up pizza.

The eat-in area has seating for more than 30 people, including booths and counter space.

Swidler said there has been a positive response from the community since the restaurant opened Saturday.

Next to the restaurant will be the Team Carolinas office. Team Carolinas owns 54 Domino’s Pizza restaurants in North Carolina and South Carolina with plans to continue expanding.

Swidler said the company will make improvements to the exterior of the plaza.

“We want to make it a safer place than it was before,” Swilder said.

The Domino’s location was previously Firewater Restaurant and Lounge, which closed earlier this year.
