Our noise problem with Dominos Pizza East Windsor, NJ takes a 2nd step

We told you last week that Domino's Pizza in East Windsor NJ at 104 Hickory Corner Rd is a constant source of resident rattling noise pollution. John Crudele of the NY Post was told by Domino's Inc. that they couldn't direct an independently owned store to do anything so bear that in mind when you think about how much you can trust them.

Then Mr. Crudele contacted East Windsor Mayor Janice Mironov. She responded, "Have brought to staff attention to look into. Stay safe and well."

Summing up: February 3, 2019 Super Bowl LIII Sunday we told Domino's Pizza on 104 Hickory Corner in East Windsor about their fan. An employee said to another, "Why don't they just fix that RIGHT already?" We later learn that another neighbor had complained to East Windsor Township prior, told it was a new fan and they were directing it, and had his noise lower...

We followed up with a note to corporate which resulted in the owner's rep calling us saying it'd be fixed in 3 days. A 2nd neighbor visited to complain on Monday 2/4/19. The noise got better (i.e. it was no longer shaking the house) but amazingly it was still audible at all 300+ feet away.

Over the next year or so the fan was inspected (we have a great bunch of employees in EW) and the Mercer County Health Dept. called. All reports came back 'no unusual noise detected.' The noise levels waxed and waned. But then we learned another neighbor had complained and that at least two of us had complained again somewhere around the week of 3/9/2020. The new neighbor is even further, roughly 350 feet away. How could 4 independent neighbors have a problem with Domino's in East Windsor yet no inspection hears what we're all hearing much further away?

This was last week. It's worse today.

08520's Domino's Pizza has Moe's right behind it acting as a sound barrier and focuser. In order to really make this right they need to erect a sound barrier to the South of the fan. Let's see if they do the right thing.

And with Mayor Mironov on the case - we hope they do. (She's been extremely helpful in the past.)

July 4th 1985 Mets vs Braves 19 inning game (full)

epaddon writes, "Here is the rare WOR Mets broadcast version of the infamous 19 inning July 4th marathon game from 1985 as presented in an edited replay on MSG in the early 2000s.

This is to my knowledge the only time the Mets broadcast version of this game has ever been replayed (all other replays over the years have been the TBS version).

You get to hear how Ralph Kiner called Rick Camp's improbable game tying home run in the Bottom of the 18th! Tim McCarver and Steve Zabriskie also on the call.

A lot of it is of course edited out but it's still great to have some of this version."

Domino's Pizza 104 Hickory Corner Rd East Windsor NJ a constant source of resident rattling noise pollution

Can you really trust any Coronavirus directive out of Domino's Pizza when East Windsor NJ's is run like this? Can you really trust Domino's Pizza when they tweet, "Domino’s is still OPEN to serve you. Whether you prefer delivery or carry out from the store, we still offer easy ways to get you delicious pizza, including our new contactless delivery option to minimize contact between you & your delivery experts."?

Domino's Pizza told the NY Post, acting on our behalf for a reader with a problem with the Hickory Corner Domino's Pizza in East Windsor NJ 08520 (Updated COVID-19 Hours & Services!), that they cannot instruct independent business owners in their operations. So...what would make us believe they are supervising the independently owned guys now?

The East Windsor NJ Domino's story as written by a reader of the Blitz:

Roughly 1.5 years (February 3, 2019 Super Bowl LIII Sunday to be exact) ago neighbors began to notice that Domino's Pizza on Hickory Corner Road was very loud. The fan can be heard as far as 500 feet away on bad days near [Redacted]. It rattles townhomes as far away as 300 feet away, including ours at [Redacted]. At that time we learned that one neighbor had complained to the Mayor's office while 2 others, including me, complained to Domino's in person and at corporate. They made some change and things got better but didn't end (i.e., the rattle/buzz subsided but it was still audible).

EW's zoning/commerical maintenance (which is excellent) staff swiftly inspected the fan and found it to be within code. Several months later the Mercer County Health Division of Public Health requested a test and it came back legal. We were instructed to call the EWPD and file a 'nuisance' noise complaint if it was bothersome but at our location due to the distance we were not going to utilize important Police resources.

Last week, simultaneously and without each other's knowledge, someone contacted John Crudele of the NY Post who began working with Domino's for us while a neighbor on [Redacted] contacted your office. Crudele was told by Domino's that they'd surely look into helping. Then Domino's Inc. told John they couldn't direct an independent owned shop to do anything.

Today we noted the hum within our house was worse. Incredibly our neighbor was relayed a message by another one of our township employees - [Redacted] - who we followed up with as well. She said Domino's told her they had fixed the problem. When I told her what we experienced today she said she would follow up with Domino's again for us as well.

East Windsor's health department was also on the case when the China Virus hit.

So the owner of Domino's Pizza in East Windsor has told at least 3 different home owners on a minimum of 2 different times that the problem is 'fixed.' Yet almost each time it may have been slightly better for some groups of was often WORSE for others. Almost as if the loud fan is somehow adjusted to spew its noise in a different direction.

This is the Domino's Pizza in East Windsor yesterday from roughly 250 feet away - it's not only rattling homes due to the pressure it directs's added a rattle.

John Crudele contacted Mayor Janice Mironov about this. She's typically been very good at helping residents when it comes to these kind of things so there's new hope.

So we ask again, Can you really trust any Coronavirus directive out of Domino's Pizza Inc., DPZ, when they can't fix an intrusive noise in 2 years? Domino's Inc. tweeting folks who've had a gross interaction to DM them is even worse.

Hey, Ashley? We may have just exposed you to something but here at Domino's we want to make it right - here's some dipping sauce.

We have an update on this East Windsor Domino's Pizza fiasco up now.
