Domino's to create 400 jobs across Northern Ireland

By Ben Woods

Domino's Pizza is creating 400 new jobs here in a major recruitment drive ahead of the European Championships and the Olympic Games.

The move is part of plans to create around 10,000 jobs and open more than 65 stores in the UK and Ireland this year as the chain gets set for an upsurge in demand, with three pizzas expected to be ordered every second during Euro 2016. Around 20 of the new stores will be in Northern Ireland.

A spokesman for the company - which currently has 23 locations here - said the jobs were permanent.

Chief executive David Wild added: "This is a bumper year for Domino's. We have plans to open around 65 new stores and we'll serve up more than seven million pizzas during the Euros alone."

Domino's announced in March that low cheese prices had helped the food chain - which has around 869 stores - rack up double-digit profits last year.
