Domino’s Pizza closes shop in San José

January 30, 2009

Domino´s Pizza surprised employees and customers this weekend shutting nine San José area establishments and offices, according to media reports.

Managers were unavailable for comment Monday after repeated phone calls to the Domino´s headquarters in San Francisco de Dos Ríos, east of San José. During a visit in the afternoon to the site, The Tico Times discovered employees from the warehouse rental company Eurocor sweeping up mounds of dust outside an empty storage facility with empty second floor offices above.

“Friday, without telling anybody, the partners gave the order to get all the equipment out of the establishments,” finance manager Francisco Solano told the daily La Nación.

The surprise move resulted in 130 employees, who were caught off guard as well, La Nación reported.
