NEW ORLEANS, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's Pizza is looking to hire over 150 new employees across more than 40 stores in the New Orleans area. All of the new positions offered are for delivery drivers and assistant managers.
"As a proud part of the New Orleans community for the past 32 years, we are dedicated to the area and excited to offer terrific opportunities to join our team and be a part of our local business," said Glenn Mueller, New Orleans Domino's Pizza franchise owner and president of RPM Pizza. "The resiliency and growth of the community, along with the success of Domino's, allows us to keep busy so we can continue to do what we do best: make great pizzas, deliver them with exceptional service and continue to be the first to open, last to close!"
The continued success of Domino's Pizza across the nation, and specifically the growth and success of its 48 stores locally owned and operated by RPM Pizza in the Greater New Orleans Region, has increased the need for additional support from enthusiastic employees focused on providing the best customer experience possible.
"As we approach storm season, we are reminded of the many people who had to leave New Orleans and, in some cases, their jobs at Domino's," said Mueller. "Thankfully, many residents are returning back where they belong – and we are ready for them to be a part of our team."
Domino's is in the midst of a national campaign promoting the unique opportunity an entry-level position at its stores may offer, with more than 90 percent of current Domino's Pizza franchisees in the U.S. starting as delivery drivers or pizza makers at the store level.
"Domino's offers terrific opportunity, as is shown by the number of local business owners who started as drivers or pizza makers," said Mueller. "We look forward to bringing in talented people, whether they want to take advantage of those opportunities – or, simply just want to have a very fun summer job as part of a great team."
