Domino’s Pizza which operates more than 9,350 stores in 70 different countries has chosen the Onyx Retail Park for one of its latest franchises, resulting in the creation of a further 30 new jobs.

Developed by Onward Holdings, The Onyx Retail Park site, located almost mid-way between Barnsley and Rotherham, attracted the enterprising Pizza chain thanks to its prime location near to a major housing development and proximity to other retailers who are also located onsite.

Domino’s Area Manager Jay Ravel who is responsible for five Domino establishments in South Yorkshire explains: “Head office is continually looking for high impact places and picked Onyx because of its prime location to existing and planned new housing. The site ticked all the boxes and I am pleased to advise that following the completion of the construction phase our business is now fully operational. Initially we hired 15 people but with the uptake in sales we are now recruiting a further 15 staff members.”

Due to the impressive take-up of units, Onward Holdings has speeded up the release of phase two, comprising a further 10,000 square feet of space which is split between two units. Onward Holdings has also sought planning permission to allow the units if necessary to be divided into much smaller shells to accommodate quick service food stores or restaurants.
