The pandemic has seen the pizza industry grow with increased demand for pizza, especially take-outs and deliveries. Consequently, Dominos shares have grown up to 30% alone this year. Domino’s Chief Executive Ritch Allison attributes the success of Dominos to the hard work and dedication of the team members during this pandemic. As a way of appreciating them, it decided to give its workers a bonus of $1200 to its 11500 hourly workers.
The largest pizza slinger in the US earmarked $9.6 million for its frontline workers at its corporate-owned stores and supply chain facilities, and some could receive as much as $1,200 per person, the company said.
The company also said it’s hiring another 30,000 workers in the US. The vast majority of Domino’s employees are employed by independent franchise owners, the company said.
It’s the second such bonus Domino’s has given employees during the pandemic. The company has also offered paid time off to its front-line workers this year.From The NY Post
