There's still a great career to be carved out in the fast food industry, with progression through to store and then regional management.
(PRWeb UK) January 27, 2011
Executive employment agency UK Knack Group has announced that the American pizza behemoth Domino’s will create as many as 1700 new jobs this year.
The pizza delivery giant’s news comes hot on the heels of its declaring an extraordinarily successful year of trading in the UK.
In its latest gazette, Domino’s says it plans to open 55 pizzerias in the 12 months ahead, and that each of those shops will employ 25 to 30 staff.
Releasing the announcement yesterday, UK Knack Group’s managing director said, “This is huge news for our recovering economy, and for unqualified school leavers seeking work in an increasingly technological and automated world.
“There’s still a great career to be carved out in the fast food industry, with progression through to store and then regional management.”
Domino’s Pizza created 1700 jobs last year, too, while opening 57 stores around the UK. These included the pizza chain’s first on the Isles of Man and Wight. No UK stores had to be shut down, in spite of the recession, maintaining the total number of stores come year’s end at 665.
Domino’s chief executive officer is Chris Moore, and recently commented that it is great to report another amazing year of growth and that 2010 was a special year for Domino’s as it was its 25th year in the UK.
Moore expects that the 28 million pound facility will provide the dough for more than half of Domino’s 600-odd stores, and holds the capacity to support the pizza deliverer’s intended expansion to 1200 shops within the next 11 years.
The world’s second largest franchised pizza chain, founded in Michigan by the Monaghan brothers in the 1960s, now enjoys success world-wide, and its contribution to the UK economy, according to UK Knack Group, is as valuable as any.
UK Knack Group’s CEO: “There’s more to a store than just yummy pizza, there are so many support roles and service businesses that it’s a winner for everyone.”
