What is the impact of China’s Zero-COVID lockdowns on economic activity, consumer goods and the foodservice industry?

While wanting to protect the country from being overwhelmed by Omicron, China’s adherence to a Zero-COVID policy is resulting in a significant economic downturn.

Domino’s is planning to hire up to 10,000 workers across the US as demand for online deliveries surges due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

The hiring plan includes recruiting delivery experts, pizza makers and customer service representatives, as well as managers and assistant managers.

The pizza company is also planning to hire drivers to support its supply chain.

Domino’s CEO Richard Allison said: “While many local, state and federal rules are closing dine-in restaurants, the opportunity to keep feeding our neighbours through delivery and carryout means that a small sense of normalcy is still available to everyone.

“Our corporate and franchise stores want to make sure they are not only feeding people but also providing an opportunity to those looking for work at this time, especially those in the heavily impacted restaurant industry.”

The company also noted that all stores are now equipped to offer contactless delivery.

The hiring plan was announced when several restaurant chains started laying off their workforce to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 outbreak.

More than 20 US states have already ordered to close restaurant dine-in spaces as coronavirus cases continue to increase in the country.

In the US, more than 14,000 people are infected with the virus.

Based on sales, Domino’s is one of the largest pizza companies in the world. Founded in 1960, the restaurant chain has more than 17,000 stores across 90 markets.

Last month, the company introduced a new Pie Pass technology to streamline pizza pick-ups for takeaway customers.
