Columbia, SC (WLTX)- For more than five years Maria Enriquez and Guadalupe Dominguez have been working side by side at the Cici's at the Village at Sandhill.
"I can count on them, when we are busy they will step up and step in when we are busy and get the job done," said Joe Delvechio, Cici's Manager.
He says they are not just dependable they are fast- and the company knows it.
"Our time standard for stretching pizza's at Cici's is 6 minutes," said Delvechio.
Enriquez and Dominguez both shatter that time and can get the job done in 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
"The company does a Throwdown competition, they get all the cooks in different markets and different areas and they compete to see who has the fastest time stretching the pizzas, putting them in the oven, cutting them, putting them on the buffet and getting it ready for our customers," said Delvechio.
They competed against cooks from Texas to Florida. Maria came in 2nd and Guadalupe came in 4th, But the duo says they are not competitive with each other.
