AN ITALIAN food take-away chain is to double its staff intake due to heavy demand at its new outlet at Manvers.
Domino’s Pizza opened at Onyx Retail Park, near Old Moor RSPB nature reserve, and was amazed at its instant popularity.
Bosses quickly decided to expand the Manvers staff quota from 15 to 30, to cope with the increasing trade.
The chain has more than 9,350 stores in 70 different countries, all offering freshly prepared food, with an additional pizza collection and delivery service.
Area Manager Jay Ravel, who is responsible for five Domino units in South Yorkshire, said: “Head office is continually looking for high impact places and picked Onyx because of its prime location to existing and planned new housing.
“I am pleased to advise that following the completion of the construction phase our business is now fully operational. Initially we hired 15 people but with the uptake in sales we are recruiting a further 15 staff members.”
Onyx has attracted a steady stream of well-known food names including Greggs the Bakers and Subway. Most recently a Thai-style eaterie decided to open there. The full site comprises 17,500 square feet of retail space, and is within an area of major development following the recent decision to construct an additional 1,100 homes in close proximity.
