Dion’s expanding again

........................................................................................................................................................................................

dions2Albuquerque’s largest homegrown pizza chain keeps getting bigger.

Dion’s is planning to open another Rio Rancho location, this time in the Cabezon area. The new 164-seat restaurant is slated to open this fall along Unser near the IHOP.

Dion’s has owned the land since 2011 but held off on building. The company decided to start now “because of recent growth in the area,” according to a spokeswoman.

Dion’s already has opened one new store this year, launching its South Valley restaurant in January. Dion’s currently has 19 locations in three states.

Dion’s expects to hire about 70 people for the new location.

“We’re anxious for Dion’s to be a central part of the surrounding neighborhood by offering a gathering place for friends, family members and neighbors to come together and enjoy great food,” Marketing Director Deena Crawley said in an email about the forthcoming Rio Rancho store.
