More than 11,500 company-owned store and supply chain hourly team members and drivers will receive a bonus of up to $1,200 in December to thank them for their services during the global health pandemic.
Domino’s previously paid a special bonus to front-line workers at its corporate stores and supply chain centers earlier this year, while also providing paid time off to its part-time, frontline team members impacted by COVID-19.
Ritch Allison, chief executive officer at Domino’s Pizza, said: “We strive every day to uphold our values of doing the right thing and putting people first. We have the honor and privilege of being open and operating throughout the U.S. during this crisis, and we recognize that we could not be doing it without the hard work and dedication of our team members. This is our way of saying thank you to these remarkable people.”
Throughout the summer, Domino’s and its franchisees also conducted a ‘Feed the Need’ program, in which they donated more than 10 million slices of pizza to first responders, frontline workers, and those in need in their communities, including hospital workers, doctors, nurses, and grocery store employees.
Domino’s also previously announced that the corporation and its franchisees were looking to hire an additional 30,000 people across the U.S. to meet demand and to provide opportunities for those who were affected by job loss as businesses closed.
