The Boston Licensing Board decides today whether to let the Domino's at 1260 Boylston St. extend its delivery time from 3 to 4 a.m.
William Mohan, director of licensing for Domino's in Boston started a hearing today by welcoming the all new Boston Licensing Board and declaring how happy he was that Mayor Walsh's statement on his purge of the old board members said the new board was part of new push toward economic opportunity across the city.
Because, Mohan said, Domino's is all about the economic opportunity, both for its workers and for the "tens of thousands of people who work late night in the city of Boston who have no opportunity for hot food unless it's delivered."
Domino's already has a 24-hour delivery service on Mission Hill, but Mohan said the extra hour at the Fenway outlet would let it better serve Longwood Medical Area staffers, along with other Bostonians who staff ambulances, nursing homes and hotels.
Mohan noted that 4 a.m. delivery would complement the "world-class," late-night subway service Boston now has on Fridays and Saturdays. "Yes, they do need transportation, but they also need food," he said of our city's world-class third shifters.
Mayor Walsh and city councilors Steve Murphy and Josh Zakim supported the proposal. City councilors Sal LaMattina and Tito Jackson also sent reps to endorse the proposal. The Domino's is not in their district, but they appreciate the community work done by the owner of the Fenway franchise at his locations in Charlestown and Roxbury.
