Pizza Hut is to hire more than 30,000 permanent members of staff in the U.S. to keep up with demand, with the brand stating that its expedited onboarding process will have new drivers “trained and on the road in five hours”.
As well as delivery positions, other available jobs include cooks, shift leaders, restaurant managers, and virtual call center agents.
The company is also putting new ordering and collection procedures in place - and doubling down on others - to meet the changing demands of customers during this critical time.
As well as its recruitment drive, Pizza Hut is also offering contactless delivery nationwide. This means that as a precautionary measure, drivers will leave a delivery at a customer’s door and notify them once they have done so.
The brand is also rolling out “Curbside Pickup” in some locations, which entails customers collecting their order while not having to leave their car and pay for the additional cost of delivery. There is also a contactless carryout option available, for customers wishing to visit the store to pick up their order.
Kevin Hochman, president of Pizza Hut U.S., said: “Given the increased demand we’re seeing for delivery, we’re hiring new team members to help us feed America.
“Whether through contactless delivery, curbside pickup, or carryout, we’re here to serve oven-hot pizza however customers want to get it. Based on families eating more together, we’re also seeing big demand for our new Big Dipper Pizza that is nearly two-feet of pizza and has over 24 slices, so we’ll be extending the availability of that product, too.”
