An iconic local eatery will soon house a new location on UNM's main campus.
Dion’s Pizza announced it's new location in the University of New Mexico’s Student Union Building, with a tentative opening scheduled for fall 2020.
“Dion’s is excited to become part of the campus, and we look forward to serving the UNM community,” said CEO Mark Herman, a UNM alumnus. “We’re thrilled to fuel students, faculty and staff who grew up with Dion’s as well as introduce newcomers to our pizza and famous Ranch dressing. Much like our stand for Isotopes games and United matches, this location is a unique way to bring Dion’s into a special environment.”
The menu will include slices, pizzas, chef and Greek salads, desserts, drinks and, of course Dion’s Ranch and Green Chile Ranch dressing. The full Dion’s menu and catering options will also be available for meetings, events and conferences on campus.
The location will be on the southeast side of the Plaza Level of the SUB. Anticipated hours of operation are: Monday-Thursday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The location will be closed on weekends and during campus breaks with adjusted hours in place during summer.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring a community favorite to campus,” said UNM Food operations manager, Amanda Gerard. “Our students, faculty and staff have suggested that we add Dion’s to our portfolio in feedback loops and focus groups for years. It’s an exciting opportunity for UNM Food and Dion’s to partner in delivering more great food options to the UNM community.”
