Downtown Blacksburg Inc. is proud to present our business Member of the Month for August 2017 – D.P. Dough.
We have been going strong since we opened in August, 2009. We chose Blacksburg because our franchise opens up in college towns and one of my business partners had the idea of Blacksburg after doing research on the student body, along with the success of all the Hokies sporting teams. I instantly adapted to the wonderful culture of Blacksburg and it has been a phenomenal town to run a restaurant in.
As most people are aware of, we are a restaurant that provides calzones instead of the ordinary pizza which helps give variety to the down town scene. Our mission statement is as follows:
“To exceed the expectations of our customers by providing exceptional customer service, fast delivery, and crazy late hours; and to have a blast while we are doing it.”
Customer satisfaction is one of our top priorities along with employee satisfaction. We mainly hire college students, because of how seasonal the business is in a college town. We believe that our employees are our most important resource and our success depends upon creating and retaining a Team capable of delivering an exceptional dining experience to every customer, every time. Our primary values are integrity, fairness, accountability, and work ethic. As the owner, I strive to instill these values in all of our employees.
Something that people may not know about D.P. Dough is that we provide more than just our calzones. We have freshly cut salads, chicken wings, boneless chicken wings we call “Dunkers” and various bread stick options. Our store is part of a small but growing franchise nationwide. The Blacksburg store is renowned through the franchise as one of the cleanest stores and we take great pride in that by displaying our plaques that we have been awarded in 2014 through 2016.
