Double duty for D’Andrea’s

Shawn Dowd and Rory Wilson have turned their lunch crowd into their dinner crowd by opening a second pizzeria in Ballston Spa.

D’Andrea’s Pizza is leasing the old Domino’s location at 223 Milton Ave., just past the fire house at the corner of Ford Street, in addition to its location at 33 Caroline St.

Dowd said a large slice of his Spa City lunch crowd works in the city but lives in Ballston Spa, so the demand for a second restaurant there was already in place.

“We’ve been looking for a second location,” said Dowd, who plans to run the Ballston Spa restaurant while Wilson stays in Saratoga Springs, where D’Andrea’s has had a following for 15 years.

Customers can expect the same menu, the same specials and same free delivery. One change, however, is the 15 or so new faces who have joined the staff behind the counter and on the delivery route.

“They all seemed to be pretty excited — the ones that came from Saratoga,” Dowd said of his customers. After the Ballston Spa restaurant opened Tuesday, business started picking up late last week, Dowd added.

For more information, call 584-3632 (Saratoga Springs) or 309-3353 (Ballston Spa).
