Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senator Patrick J. Diegnan, Jr. and Councilman Joseph A. Coyle welcomed the new Domino’s supply chain warehouse in the Raritan Center section of Edison during a tour on April 23.
“We are glad that Domino’s chose New Jersey to become the home for one of its first warehouses in a decade,” said Sweeney (D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland). “This will create good paying jobs for people in Central Jersey. We want to do all that we can to attract and retain jobs and promote economic growth.”
Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin (D-Middlesex) and Assemblyman Robert J. Karabinchak (D-Middlesex) joined in on the tour.
“It’s no surprise that Domino’s chose to locate one of its main distribution facilities in Central Jersey,” said Diegnan (D-Middlesex). “The area affords excellent access to major interstate arteries and is home to many skilled professionals. We’re only a few hours away from Boston and Washington, and we know our pizza.”
Domino’s has grown by 50% over the last five years, and the warehouse in Edison is one of two that have been built by Domino’s for the first time in over a decade, according to information provided by the New Jersey Senate Democrats. The site is 182,000 square feet and is used for food processing and distribution. The location takes advantage of the state’s key asset as a transportation hub.
“Any time a company wants to invest in your township it is something to be happy about,” said Councilman Joseph A. Coyle, who also serves as president of the Edison Chamber of Commerce. “Domino’s has brought countless jobs to the region and we look forward to having them here for years to come.”
