• STURGIS, SD (12/30/2014) – The Board of Directors of the Sturgis Economic Development Corp (SEDC), and Domino’s Pizza franchise operators Allan Erwin, Shanna Friday, and Bill Leiker invite the public to a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, January 5, at 2:00 pm, at 1057 Main Street, Sturgis. Immediately following the ceremony, refreshments will be served at the Meade County Times-Tribune office across the street, where the public will have an opportunity to meet the owners.

    General contractor Iverson Construction anticipates the one-story, 2,800 sq. ft. building will be ready for Domino’s new dine-in eatery concept to open for business in May 2015. This will be one year after SEDC purchased the vacant lot for retail development as part of their continued commitment to downtown revitalization efforts.

    The Wyoming-based Domino’s franchise owners are experienced operators, having been in the pizza business since 1989. They currently operate 14 locations in four states. Co-owner Allan Erwin states, “We have spent a great deal of time researching the Sturgis market and are excited to soon open our new store on Main Street. The support from SEDC and the business-friendly atmosphere of the City has been a real treat. We look forward to being involved in the community throughout the coming years.”

    Pat Kurtenbach, SEDC President, states, “The Sturgis Economic Development Corp is proud to partner with Allan, Shanna, and Bill to bring a Domino’s national franchise to Sturgis. Their energy and expertise will further enhance year-round retail services to our downtown district.”
