GREAT FOOD - OUR NUMBER ONE VALUE
Just like you, Dion’s is made up of a lot of little slices that make us unique. Our food is just one of them, and it’s at the top of the list. We owe much of our success to a few simple rules we apply to our food: we always use the finest ingredients, we never compromise them for a cheaper price and we only serve pizza, salads and subs that make us beam with pride.
Our food is wholesome and made from scratch in our kitchen just for you. A group of people at our Home Office is entirely devoted to finding the fresh ingredients from trustworthy sources. We use those ingredients to create thoughtful recipes and hand-craft them into simple, delicious food our customers crave. We also have a dedicated commissary team who prepares everything from our salad mix to our fruit cups, in addition to slicing our sub meats and cheeses, on a daily basis. They also prepare our special Ranch dressing. We’d tell you it’s secret ingredient, but then we’d have to…um, just don’t ask, please.
We also can’t forget the folks who work in our stores. They arrive bright and early each morning to roll dough, whisk sauce, shred cheese, and chop vegetables, just to name a few tasks. You’ll find employees perfecting the art of pizza making in our stores daily, which only comes with practice, and takes hundreds of pies to master. There are no machines involved and each one is a reflection of the person making it.
We also use local products when possible and support sustainable agriculture. Our green chile is grown in New Mexico, and we use a custom blend from Bueno Foods. Our cheese comes from a dairy in Las Cruces. And, we have a partnership with Galloping Grace Youth Ranch in which we donate our fruit and vegetable scraps to feed their animals and supplement their composting efforts. This also diverts the scraps from landfills and makes it possible to use every part of the food.
Is your mouth watering at the thought of Greek dressing? Is your tummy grumbling for a slice of green chile, pepperoni pizza? Is the rational side of your brain telling you to log your meal before you take that first bite? If so, we’ve provided a few tools to help you out. Our nutrition calculator will provide the nutritional value of our products, and like our menu, each item is customizable so you only account for what you really eat. The interactive tool will provide a quick glance and allow you to easily compare items for quick decision making. And last but not least, the allergen guide will flag ingredients that may be of concern to you. Our entire nutrition portal can be found here:
IDEAS FOR SPECIFIC DIETARY NEEDS
We know a number of our customers have specific dietary needs, so we have worked with a registered dietitian to provide ideas on how to order and customize our products for your needs.
Of course, everyone’s body is different and we urge you to seek guidance from your own physician and/or a registered dietitian to make the best decisions possible for you.
