New Delhi: Jubilant FoodWorks, that holds the master franchise for Domino's Pizza in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and also for Dunkin' Donuts in India, plans to add around 5,000 employees by this fiscal ending March 2016. Most of these new recruits will be to man its 150 new Domino's Pizza stores and 40 new Dunkin' Donuts stores in India. The company, which is already a 30,000-people strong organisation, is looking to invest about Rs 200 crore for its expansion plans. Further, it is planning to set up a state-of-the-art factory in Greater Noida. "This will be the first of its kind in the world for Domino's Pizza. This is going to be a total green facility," Ajay Kaul, chief executive officer of Jubilant FoodWorks.
Unlike most other companies (competitors including food delivery startups), we are on an expansion phase," he said. Lately, online food delivery start-ups such as TinyOwl, Zomato, Dazo and SpoonJoy have laid off employees as a result of high costs and low returns. Other online food delivery business companies are struggling too. Not too long ago, these food delivery startups were on a hiring spree, but with high costs and not enough returns they are now being forced to either shut down or cut costs.
