DOMINO’S PIZZA KICKS OFF RECRUITMENT DRIVE AHEAD OF

WORLD’S BIGGEST FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT

DOMINO’S IS SET TO RECRUIT 1,300 EXTRA DRIVERS TO HELP DELIVER 6 MILLION PIZZAS

 

As the UK prepares to be hit by football fever, Domino’s Pizza UK is gearing up for a huge peak in orders and deliveries this summer, so is on the hunt for 1,300 new recruits to help deliver a staggering 56 million slices of pizza to hungry football fans across the UK.

 

TV screens across the UK are expected to be firmly fixed to the action in Rio throughout June and July, and with the 64 games being broadcast live during the nation’s dinnertime (5pm to 11pm), Domino’s predicts that sport-loving Brits are expected to rack up enough orders to have the delivery team travelling a massive 13.5 million miles.

 

·     Domino’s expects to sell nearly 6 million pizzas during June and July, which would stretch the equivalent of 12,105 miles from London to Rio de Janeiro and back again

·         This equates to a massive 56 million slices of pizza being delivered throughout summer

·         5,000 Domino’s pizza makers at 828 Domino’s stores will create the pizzas

·         2.7 million journeys and approximately 13.5 million miles covered

·         823,000kg tomato sauce (equivalent to weight of 109 double decker buses)

·         823,000kg mozzarella cheese (equivalent to the volume of 1.5 Olympic size swimming pools)

·         42 million slices of pepperoni

 

Stuart Lauderdale, Head of Operations at Domino’s Pizza UK said: “Domino’s is looking for drivers with the right attitude towards service and who really care about what they do. Over half of our current store managers started out as delivery drivers themselves, so whether you’re looking to make extra cash in your spare time or a brand new career, there opportunities are there for the taking.”
