Business digest

Briefly

Domino's Pizza has new look: Domino's Pizza, 8381 Northcliffe Blvd., Spring Hill, recently reopened its newly remodeled store, featuring a "pizza theater" design.

Highlights include a comfortable lobby, open-area viewing of food preparation and the ability to track carryout orders electronically on a lobby screen.

Chalkboards allow customers to express their creativity or leave feedback for employees, and the big-screen television allows patrons to watch programming while they wait. Indoor and outdoor seating is available.

Owner Jerry Campbell of Spring Hill owns three Domino's Pizza locations and has been with the company for more than 20 years. He began as a delivery driver for Domino's.

To showcase the new look, specials will be offered through Sunday. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for June 18.
