Domino’s on global hiring spree
Domino’s Pizza is embarking on a worldwide hiring initiative.
The largest pizza company in the world based on global retail sales said its corporate and franchise stores are looking to fill more than 20,000 positions, including delivery experts, pizza makers, customer service representatives, managers, and assistant managers. In addition, Domino’s supply chain centers across the U.S. are actively hiring production and warehouse team members, as well as CDL drivers.
Domino’s sales have surged since March as more customers ordered pizza delivery ad takeout during the pandemic. The pizza chain’s U.S. same-store sales soared 16.1% for its most recent second quarter and net income rose to $118.7 million, or $2.99 per share, from $92.4 million, or $2.19 per share, last year.
As new stores continue to be built and existing stores remain busy nationwide, the need to find great team members remains a priority for store managers in corporate and franchise stores nationwide. More than 95% of Domino's U.S. franchise owners began their career as part-time team members.
"We realize that these are tough times, and not only do we want to maintain strong service levels, but we also want to provide opportunities to those who have lost their jobs or are facing reduced hours," said Tom Curtis, Domino's executive VP of operations and support. "Domino's stores offer flexible work options, which include part-time and full-time opportunities."
Domino's stores across the U.S. have implemented several cleanliness, sanitization and contactless service precautions based on advice from federal, state, and local health and safety officials. They include wearing masks, the use of a pizza pedestal for contactless pizza deliveries, closing all in-store seating options and increasing the frequency of sanitation of all regularly touched surfaces.
Domino’s has more than 17,100 stores in over 90 markets. It had global retail sales of over $14.3 billion in 2019, with over $7.0 billion in the U.S. and nearly $7.3 billion internationally.
