(Muskogee-AP) -- Dominoes Pizza is helping to deliver 400 jobs to Muskogee.

Tulsa-based QuikOrders Incorporated will use $4-million to transform an abandoned Corning Glass plant into a high-tech communications center that will use the Internet to route pizza orders to Dominoes Pizza stores.

Muskogee economic development officials say the call center is expected to open in March with about 200 employees.

The call center brings much-needed employment to a community that lost almost 600 jobs in 2003 when three major employers closed local operations.

The money was put together with the help of Business Finance and Development Corporation.

Corporation president Greg O-Donnell says the company is moving its operations to Muskogee.
