Update: This story was updated at 11:25 a.m. to reflect additional information about the development.

A new Domino’s supply chain center is slated to be completed in late 2020 and will create around 85 new jobs in the Katy area, according to a press release.

The approximately 59,000-square-foot facility will be located at 900 Igloo Road, Katy, and will be one of many supply chain centers in the region, Domino's spokesperson Dani Bulger said in an email. The closest one is in Grand Prairie, Texas, she said.

The center will make pizza dough for more than 300 Domino’s stores in the region and will have automated technology for ingredient batching, mixing and portioning, weight adjustment and tray stacking, per the release. The equipment will facilitate the making of 20,000 dough balls trays per day.

“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, in the release. “This center in Katy will manufacture our fresh pizza dough and also serve as a warehouse and distribution center for our stores in South Texas and ... parts of Louisiana.”


National Property Holdings and Domino's Pizza led the deal, Bulger said. The broker was Cushman & Wakefield.

Bulger added the cost for construction has not been released but the developer National Property Holdings and Domino's are funding the project. The project has been in the works for over one year, and construction is estimated to take place over nine or 10 months to open by the end of 2020.

Levy spoke at the Domino’s groundbreaking Dec. 12 along with city of Katy officials and officials from Houston-based developer National Property Holdings and design contractor ARCO Design/Build.

Based on retail sales, Domino’s is the largest company in the world in both delivery and carryout pizza, per the release.
