ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ) is coming upon one of its busy seasons – and the recognized world leader in pizza delivery is the place to be for those looking to help take on the holiday pizza rush and rake in some holiday cash!
Starting Wednesday, Domino's begins a stretch of time that will feature three of its top five days of the year – including Thanksgiving Eve, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. The time period will also feature Cyber Monday, a day that – one year ago – helped lead Domino's to the first 1 million order week via online and mobile ordering in the company's history. More orders means more need for talented team members looking to cash in on the opportunity!
Domino's franchise owners plan to hire roughly one to five people per store, which means about 5,000 – 25,000 job opportunities during this busy stretch of the year. The nearly 1,100 independent business owners, true entrepreneurs within the Domino's system, will be offering positions in all facets of their business – from delivery drivers, to order takers and pizza makers.
"We get very excited during busy pizza eating occasions, but it's not just about the great food and service our fans and customers have come to expect from Domino's," said J. Patrick Doyle, Domino's Pizza chief executive officer. "It is also about the opportunity this gives people to be a part of the Domino's team, and help us do what we do best by hand-making and delivering our best pizzas during our busiest times."
