Previous Northern Ireland Job Announcement
The above announcement follows an announcement from earlier this month that Domino's was seeking 175 new employees in Northern Ireland, and that the new roles included management positions, team members and delivery drivers as it gears up for the return of late night opening.
Domino's already provides work for nearly 600 in-store team members and delivery drivers across its 31 stores in Northern Ireland.
Domino's stated, "As restrictions lift, Domino's is committed to delivering piping hot, fresh pizza to thousands of shift and night-workers as they continue to serve the region. 12.3% of all employees in Northern Ireland are night-workers, with the majority working on the frontline in protective services, nursing and healthcare."
According to The Irish Examiner, Bush also said that Domino's is eyeing "considerable" growth in outlet and revenues in Ireland over the next three years, and that Domino's will increase the number of outlets that it has in Ireland this year "and every year after".
According to The Irish Examiner, while Bush didn't say how many new outlets Domino's might open, he said that the pizza chain is looking to speed up growth in Ireland over the next two to three years, that all of the Irish-based Domino's franchisees are keen to open additional outlets, that growth will primarily come from existing franchisees and that Ireland has proven to be a "successful and very good market" for Domino's over the past three decades.
Additionally, also according to The Irish Examiner, Domino's is in the process of selling its operations across mainland Europe in favour of focussing on Ireland and the UK, Bush said that the growth strategy for Ireland will include further expansion, improved levels of sourcing ingredients locally, a more innovative menu, faster delivery and a stronger targeting of off-peak time sales, and a new supply chain facility is due to open in Naas in Co. Kildare later in 2021.
According to The Irish Examiner, Domino's Ireland generated revenues of £26.8 million last year, which was down slightly on the previous year.
