Domino’s to boost workforce numbers after uplift in sales
Domino’s Pizza Group has unveiled plans to recruit more than 8,000 staff as part of a festive recruitment drive as it announced an uplift in quarterly sales.
In a trading statement, the company said system sales in the 13 weeks to 26 September increased by 9,9% to £375.8 million in the UK and Ireland.
Meanwhile, total orders grew by 9.5 % in the period after collection orders surged by 40.3% to reach 82% of 2019 levels. The company has also seen its digital momentum continue to grow with its new app now accounting for 42.1% of system sales.
Dominic Paul, Domino’s Pizza chief executive, said: “We have delivered another strong quarter and demonstrated excellent momentum in the business which reflects the hard work and commitment of our franchisees and colleagues. We have built on our strong performance through the pandemic as restrictions have been lifted, with our collections business continuing its recovery and our total order count growing in a profitable and sustainable way.”
Domino’s has opened 18 stores in the year to date and remains on track to launch up to 30 stores in the full year and 200 stores in the medium term.
The company said trading remains in-line with expectations.
Paul added: “Our supply chain continues to deliver outstanding results, despite the well-publicised inflationary pressures and challenging labour market, which is testament to the skill and dedication of our teams. While we see these pressures continuing into 2022, our success in managing them to date provides us with confidence that our growth momentum will be sustained.”
