Solutions for One of Florida’s Most Stable Restaurant Types: Pizza
COVID-19 has sent people home to shelter in place while the virus runs its course. Many restaurants have closed their dining rooms but remain open for carryout and delivery. Pizza joints are making the same concessions. However, many eateries are struggling to keep their heads above water. For pizza restaurants, not only are they staying afloat, but they are also thriving throughout this crisis. It seems that people stuck at home are still craving their pizza fix.
While all the major pizza chains experienced a dip in sales at the onset of the Coronavirus, they seem to have leveled out. Two major pizza chains, Pizza Hut and Papa John's have both announced their intent to hire many new employees.
Pizza Hut plans to hire an additional 30,000 permanent employees. While it isn't going to skip on training, the company plans to expedite the onboarding process and put safety training first.
Papa John's is looking to bring on an additional 20,000 permanent new hires. The company has streamlined its hiring practice to get new people on staff as quickly as possible. It offers interviews online, over the phone, and in-person to help keep social distancing in place. To help protect drivers, the chain offers contact-free deliveries. Each driver carries a sanitization kit in their cars to protect themselves and the customers before, during, and after delivery.
