A couple who began their fast-food careers delivering pizzas will open the Canyon Lake area’s first Domino’s pizza restaurant on the north side of the lake this spring.
Kristin Jones and her husband Adam Grigsbay, who welcomed son Wyatt in January, next week will begin remodeling a preexisting building located at 18382 FM 306 in a shopping center with Karmic Juju Boutique and Edward Jones-Financial Advisors.
If construction goes smoothly the store could open as early as April but no later than May.
The new Domino’s will be located north of the Exxon station on FM 306 between Canyon Park Road (near Boat Ramp #18) and Shelly Drive across from the Dollar General.
The store only offers carryout and delivery. A pickup window will allow customers to get their orders without leaving their vehicles. A car-side delivery option also is available.
Jones said the store’s delivery area is awaiting approval by corporate, but boundaries are expected to run along FM 306 from Rebecca Creek Elementary to FM 2673 and as far north as the Blanco River.
“We are looking for a spot to build a store on the south side of the lake as well, but we have had a very hard time finding commercial real estate,” Jones said.
The couple currently live in Lewisville, north of Dallas, but plan to move to Canyon Lake and operate the new Domino’s personally.
“We want to be part of this community as we start the next chapter of our lives and we will be looking to hire about 15 to 20 people between delivery drivers, customer service representatives and management,” Jones said.
She began her career at Domino’s as a delivery driver in 2015 and worked her way up to a storage manager position by 2020. Grigsbay also started as a delivery driver in 2011 and has worked as a store manager for the past 10 years.
“We have both wanted to take the next step and own our own store and have been blessed to work under wonderful Domino’s franchisees (with G4 Pizza) who have supported us the whole way. The store we are opening will be our first time owning a store, but with the experience we both have running stores we are very confident and excited for this new chapter in our lives.”
The estimated cost for renovations and alterations is $450,000 according to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.
