Doubling employees with expansion
Domino’s Pizza isn’t just delivering more pizza as it expands the food chain with a new sit-down design for its locations, but the change also means doubling its employees for its new Boutte store.
“It will require we have more team members,” said District Manager Palfrey Polk. “We will be looking to hire more people and would like to get started as soon as possible so they can move into the new location when completed.”
Fifteen people work at the Boutte location now.
But Polk said they are looking at hiring 15 more people in positions including assistant managers, drivers and customer service representatives.
As advertised nationally, Domino’s has initiated a national push to convert its delivery-focused locations to a sit-down arrangement, as well as modernize them. Polk said the new Boutte location will resemble the company’s second location in Destrehan that has a more open layout with some seating.
“The concept is to have more people see what’s going on,” Polk said. “We want people to see how the food is made. It provides a fun environment because of the way we make pizza. You may see people tossing up the dough and it’s real fascinating for the kids to see how the pizza is made from start to finish.”
The new building is being built alongside the current store. The current building will be bulldozed and turned into a parking lot.
Polk said a grand opening is planned.
“We’ve had a lot of people coming by and asking us what’s going on,” he said. “We’re just as excited as they are.”
