HOUSTON, Jan. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ARCO Design/Build recently broke ground to commence construction on a new Domino's supply chain center developed by National Property Holdings located at 900 Igloo Road in Katy, TX on Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019.
"We're honored to work with Domino's and National Property Holdings to build this new supply chain center in Katy," said Eric Safko, Vice President of ARCO Design/Build. "This project uniquely leverages our design-build approach and light industrial food manufacturing expertise. Our entire team enjoys working with Domino's, National Property Holdings and the City of Katy and looks forward to delivering a quality facility upon completion."
The 59,000-square-foot building will produce fresh pizza dough for more 300 Domino's stores located throughout the region. It will feature a variety of automated technology, including ingredient batching, mixing and portioning, weight adjustment, tray stacking, and spiral coolers, which will help produce 20,000 trays of dough balls per day.
