Dion’s is making a crash landing in Roswell with the opening of the New Mexican pizza chain’s 20th location.

The new location at 1350 South Main Street will open Thursday, June 25, according to Dion’s marketing director Deena Crawley.

Crawley said Dion’s received numerous requests to bring the chain down to Roswell.

“It’s something that we’ve really thought about for many years and just all the cards landed in the right place, ” she said.

The new location will offer a limited menu but will still feature all of the regular Dion’s pizzas, Crawley said. Gourmet pizzas will not be available however.

“The really popular items are still on the menu,” she said.

Although the store won’t have an alien theme, a commemorative T-shirt featuring a UFO beaming up a pizza slice was released for the occasion.

The Roswell location will open following all of the mandated health restrictions. About 70 employees were hired for the store.
