Domino's pizza sets out plans for Peterhead takeaway

A major pizza chain could set up shop in Peterhead, despite previous plans for a takeaway being scuppered.

Domino’s Pizza had originally applied for planning consent for a takeaway out the outskirts of town, near to McDonalds at the Burnside Business Park.

However, those plans were dropped in favour of a Burger King, leaving pizza fans dismayed.

But now, fresh plans have been lodged with Aberdeenshire Council to create a takeaway at the former car salesroom on West Road.

Developers MSG Scotland Ltd, have submitted plans for the pizza chain to take over space at the West Road Customs garage.

Creating the takeaway would mean adapting the existing cafe unit on site.

It would be the town’s first Domino’s with the next one located some 30 miles away in Inverurie.

It is understood emission studies have already been undertaken to confirm that, with the correct measures in place, cooking odours should not affect anyone at the attached business, nor nearby homes.

Numerous proposals have been lodged for the Burnside Business Park over the past couple of years but at the end of last year it was announced that the Domino’s plan would be scrapped in favour of the creation of a Burger King drive-thru and a Costa Coffee outlet.

In papers submitted to the council, the developers stated that the Domino’s scheme had been dropped ‘due to the volatility in the retail and restaurant sectors following the pandemic’. Screwfix had also been planned on site, but this too was scrapped.

The new plans are sure to excite pizza fans who flocked in their droves to the firm’s pop-up when it was located at the town’s Balmoor Retail Park.

Domino’s is an American multinational pizza restaurant which was founded in 1960 by Tom and James Monaghan. The chain currently has in excess of 13,500 staff across its branches.
