Papa John's boosts hiring to support mobile ordering

Papa John's is hiring up to 20,000 restaurant team members, with a pledge that the company is committed to the communities it serves through delivery and carryout to meet consumers' needs in the wake of the pandemic, a news release said. 

"For anyone looking for immediate ways to earn an income, we're making it quick and simple to apply, interview and be hired at Papa John's," Marvin Boakye, Papa John's chief people and diversity officer, said in the release. "We want to add talented team members to our Papa John's family across the country to deliver food safely to our customers' doorsteps. We are in the unique position — as a restaurant that specializes in delivery and carryout — to help our communities through this crisis."

The brand said it was playing an important role in communities across the country as people are asked to stay at home. It will also put a priority on protecting its team members and customers, implementing additional health and safety precautions, like enhanced restaurant sanitation measures and contactless delivery, that offers a limited interaction food drop-off experience and online payment, according to the release.

In most cases, applicants can expect to have an interview and potentially start the same day, the brand said.
