Apache Pizza to create 500 new jobs

Apache Pizza has launched its biggest ever recruitment drive in Ireland as it seeks to fill 500 new jobs across its 180 stores before Christmas.

The pizza chain is kicking off a National Recruitment Roadshow that will visit towns and universities in a concerted effort to fill the roles as quickly as possible.

The 500 new jobs include permanent, fulltime and part-time positions for general managers, supervisors, team members and delivery drivers and offer flexible working conditions, full training and attractive opportunities for career advancement.

“We pride ourselves on being local. Our success is driven by being part of communities and by serving tasty pizza which can be enjoyed anywhere, at any time”

The new jobs are being created as Apache Pizza gears up for the busiest period of the year and an even busier 2022. These 500 new jobs follow the 300 new jobs that it created earlier this year when it announced the opening of 20 new stores.

Apache Pizza has served a whopping 6 million pizzas to customers so far this year and is firmly established as Ireland’s largest and most popular pizza chain after more than 25 years in business.

Apache Pizza was founded in Dublin in 1996 by Robert Pendleton and his wife Emily Gore Grimes. The couple no longer manage the business. It is now owned by Food Delivery Brands, the largest and most geographically diversified pizza delivery master franchise in the world by store numbers and by OKR Group, Ireland’s leading QSR franchise operator.

“We pride ourselves on being local. Our success is driven by being part of communities and by serving tasty pizza which can be enjoyed anywhere, at any time,” said Crispin McLoughlin, chief operating officer at Apache Pizza.

“We are delighted to create such a large number of jobs and to provide people with an immediate opportunity to join Apache Pizza, to secure local employment and to develop and advance their career with us as we continue to grow and expand across the island of Ireland,” he added.
