Wales Rugby Captain Ryan Jones officially opens the new Domino’s Pizza store in Pontyclun http://www.pizzanews.co.uk/wales-rugby-captain-ryan-jones-officially-opens-the-new-dominos-pizza-store-in-pontyclun-43500/ http://www.pizzanews.co.uk/wales-rugby-captain-ryan-jones-officially-opens-the-new-dominos-pizza-store-in-pontyclun-43500/#comments Tue, 05 Oct 2010 11:06:04 +0000 kate http://www.pizzanews.co.uk/?p=435

Ryan Jones and Tej Randeva

Domino’s Pizza in Pontyclun were delighted to welcome Wales Rugby Captain, Ryan Jones to the brand new store last night as part of the outlet’s grand opening celebrations.

The international rugby player cut the ribbon to declare the store officially open. The Osprey star really got into the spirit of things, donning a Domino’s Pizza uniform complete with apron, hat and name badge.

Under the watchful eye of the new staff at Domino’s Pizza Pontyclun, Ryan got down to the important business of pizza making. Despite admitting he hadn’t made a pizza since cooking classes at school, with store franchisee Tej Randeva on hand to offer pizza making tips, the rugby star managed to create his own Domino’s pizza from scratch.

When asked what would be his idea of pizza heaven, Ryan admitted he’s a fan of “spicy and meaty” pizzas, but his pizza hell would be a plain cheese and tomato topped pizza which the Wales skipper thinks is “just a waste of a good pizza!”

The rugby ace handled the pressure in the kitchen with ease, but later admitted he’s a keen chef at home and often cooks up Sunday roasts and barbeques in the summer for friends and family.

One lucky Domino’s Pizza customer had the unexpected privilege of having their pizza order hand delivered by Ryan Jones in the Domino’s Ferrari. After trying his hand as a pizza delivery man, I asked Ryan if he could have anyone deliver him a pizza, who would it be? “Cheryl Cole” was the first answer, but after a bit more consideration the Osprey star revised his answer to Mongolian Emperor, “Ghenghis Khan” – can’t say I saw that one coming!

With the Autumn Internationals looming, the Domino’s Pizza store in Pontyclun were grateful the Wales captain was able to take time out to visit the outlet’s official opening. The 29-year-old sportsman says on a personal level, he’d love to beat the All Blacks in the upcoming season:

“I’ve played against the All Blacks in games where we’ve lost badly, and when we’ve come really close to beating them, so it would be nice to finally get that win over New Zealand and to make a bit of history”

With thanks to rugby star Ryan Jones and all the staff at Domino’s in Pontyclun, the new outlet celebrated its grand opening in style, but the celebrations don’t end there; the store is offering an exclusive buy one get one free offer on all pizza collections from the new Pontyclun outlet.

If you live in the South Wales area, you can’t afford to miss out on the great deals on offer at Domino’s Pizza Ponytclun so get down to the new store today to make the most of these one-off discounts.

New Domino’s Pizza outlet in Pontyclun, Llantrisant? http://www.pizzanews.co.uk/new-dominos-pizza-outlet-in-pontyclun-llantrisant-15600/ http://www.pizzanews.co.uk/new-dominos-pizza-outlet-in-pontyclun-llantrisant-15600/#comments Mon, 01 Mar 2010 13:29:46 +0000 Ian http://www.pizzanews.co.uk/?p=156 Dominos Pizza Pontyclun

A brand new Domino’s Pizza outlet could be set for Pontyclun, Llantrisant, providing it gets the green light from Rhondda Cynon Taf Council.

The introduction of the new Domino’s Pizza store would bring a huge boost to the Pontyclun area along with creation of 30 jobs for local people.

The council will consider the proposal on March 11th. However Domino’s are positive that the potential to create so many jobs for local workers will weigh heavily in their favour.

Should permission be granted for the franchise, two store managers jobs would be created, long with 28 other positions ranging from delivery driver, customer service operators, and trainee pizza makers. Domino’s has a fantastic track record for offering opportunities to ambitious individuals with many employees working their way up the ranks and gaining a managerial position within two years.

South Wales based businessman, Tej Randeva, is the proposed franchisee for the new venture. Tej has considerable experience in the business arena and currently runs a limousine brokerage company, Limo Broker, and a coach hire brokerage company, Coach Broker, from his base in Cardiff Bay. The 29-year-old also picked up the award for Fastest Growing Business in 2003 for his brand of insurance brokers in South Wales.

A spokesperson for Domino’s Pizza said they are very excited about the new venture and hope to bring locals jobs, and delicious pizza, to the Pontyclun area in the very near future.
