Subway goes on hiring spree
Subway Restaurants is looking to beef up its ranks.
The sandwich chain announced that its local franchise owners are looking to hire approximately 50,000 workers in North American restaurants. Subway, the largest U.S. restaurant chain by number of locations, said that the job opportunities range from entry-level to management.
"As our business continues to see a growing demand for our value offerings, curbside pick-up and delivery, we are happy to support such a large-scale employment opportunity to meet the demands of our guests," said Aidan Hay, Subway VP of operations for North America. "We've been fortunate that a majority of Subway restaurants remained open the past few months and are so appreciative to the franchise owners and their employees who have made that possible. For existing and new employees, it is important to us that each one feel valued and safe when working in our restaurants."
During the past several months, Subway has been enhancing its operational procedures to keep restaurants safe and clean. Measures include closing its dining rooms, working with third-party delivery partners to ensure contactless delivery, providing more than one million masks for restaurant employees, requiring appropriate social distancing guidelines in restaurants among employees and customers and increasing food safety procedures. It also is providing its franchise owners with guidelines for employee wellness checks.
