(Neb)-Domino's Opens In Chadron Without Fanfare Listen
CHADRON - Quietly and without fanfare, the new Domino's Pizza opened yesterday in Chadron. The restaurant on West 6th Street in Chadron, across from Bruce-Hill Furniture and Quality Tire, has seating for 42 in addition to the chain's traditional home delivery.
Domino's joins McDonald's as the only eating establishments in Chadron open past 10:00 most nights, running 10 a-m till midnight Sunday-Thursday and 10:00-till-1:00 a-m on Friday and Saturday.
This is the fourth Domino's owned by Mike and Erika Hackett of Scottsbluff, following ones in Scottsbluff in 2001, Torrington 2 years ago, and Gering last year. Erika is excited to finally be open in Chadron.
Hackett says the soft opening, with a VIP evening Wednesday and yesterday's unpublicized start of regular operations, was done to give her crew of about a dozen full-time and 10 part-time workers a chance to learn its way around without big crowds - although she's not sure they really needed it.
The managers of the Scottsbluff, Gering, and Torrington Domino's are helping with the first few days in Chadron, as are Hackett and her husband.
She says the two of them usually have independent schedules, allowing at least one to be at each restaurant a couple times a week, a pattern that will continue in Chadron.
Hackett also says she and her husband are already planning their next expansion with a move into Alliance in the next year or two. They've also looked at Sidney, but are waiting to see what happens to the real estate market when Bass Pro Shops begins to eliminate Cabela's headquarter jobs.
The Hacketts received 2 loans from the city of Chadron as part of the financing for the $1.4-million dollar store project - $168,000 from the city's Community Development Block Grant Reuse Loan Fund and$82,000 from the LB-840 economic development sales tax
Both carry a 4.25% interest rate, well under the Hacketts' commercial loan...a 20-year adjustable rate $865,000 loan with a 5.25% rate the first 5 years and adjusted to reflect current rates every 5 years after that with a maximum jump of 3% and a lifetime maximum of 12.5%.
