Domino’s Pizza in South Boston won’t be delivering late.
The Boston Licensing Board rejected a request by the pizza eatery to extend its delivery hours to 3 a.m. Currently the pizzeria, located at 163 Old Colony Ave., has walk-in and delivery service until 1 a.m.
Representatives were before the Andrew Square Civic Association in early October to pitch their plan, but it was opposed by the organization.
Bill Mohan, a consult for Jeff Dufficy, owner of the Old Colony Domino’s Pizza along with 15 Domino’s franchises throughout Metro Boston according to Mohan, told the neighborhood group that the extension of hours was to better serve hungry residents in South Boston, who currently rely on the service of Dufficy’s Dorchester, Fenway or Charlestown locations, which are open later.
Residents at the meeting opposed the extension citing concerns about noise, driver safety, and the potential precedent it would set for other area establishments.
At the Licensing Board’s hearing on Wednesday, Universal Hub reported that Mohan alleged that he had been excluded from the Andrew Square Civic Association hearing, when in fact he was able to present his client’s plan and take questions from the residents. Mohan was however asked to leave the room when the group voted, which is common practice for the group when voting on matters.
