Domino’s Eyes Northwest Indiana for New Supply Chain Center

Domino’s Pizza Inc. (NYSE: DPZ) announced intentions today to establish new operations and launch production, storage and distribution in Lake County. Subject to approval of incentives from the town of Merrillville, the company plans to create up to 140 new jobs by the end of 2023 to support the new supply chain center.


"Indiana is the ideal location for companies looking to expand their supply chains because of our central location, infrastructure investments and hardworking Hoosier workforce, which together create a recipe for job creation and growth," said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. “I'm so thankful this new Domino's facility will not only create quality career opportunities for Hoosiers in northwest Indiana, but will also help provide countless families with a slice of happiness across the Midwest.”

The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based company plans to invest approximately $50.3 million to build and equip a 110,000-square-foot regional pizza dough production and warehouse facility on a 15.2-acre property at Ameriplex at the Crossroads along I-65 in Merrillville. The supply chain center will service Domino’s stores throughout Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. Construction is expected to begin in late 2021 and be complete by the end of 2022.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Domino’s Pizza LLC up to $2 million in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in conditional training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired and trained. The town of Merrillville is expected to approve incentives on June 8.
