Hiring event to take place on October 18 from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. EST at 135 Fazoli’s locations
Indianapolis, IN (RestaurantNews.com) Fazoli’s, America’s largest fast casual Italian chain, is hosting its second annual ‘National Signing Day’ on October 18, to be held at 135 participating locations, and with a goal to hire at least 500 team members in a single day. Several Indianapolis locations are also testing delivery service and will be hiring for delivery drivers. Last year’s first annual National Signing Day attracted nearly 1,200 job candidates, and resulted in 422 new hires for a variety of hourly positions.
During the all day event, managers will review applications and conduct interviews, before making on-the-spot offers to hundreds of applicants. After 90 days of employment, new associates will be entered into a drawing to win one of five GoPro action cameras or one of five Bose Soundlink wireless speakers or one of five Yeti water bottles. A “$90 after 90 days” signing bonus will also be offered to all new team members.
“As a brand, Fazoli’s is rapidly growing, and we are looking for a unique way to differentiate ourselves from other brands in this competitive hiring environment,” said Dave Craig, Fazoli’s Vice President of Human Resources. “The success of last year’s National Signing Day showed that potential team members recognize Fazoli’s as both a great place to eat and to work.”
With nearly 220 restaurants in 24 states, Fazoli’s is America’s largest Italian fast casual chain, serving freshly prepared entrées, Submarinos® sandwiches, salads and pizza. In 2011, Fazoli’s underwent a major brand overhaul with the introduction of real plateware and silverware in lieu of foam plates and plastic cutlery. As part of the brand refresh, earlier this year, Fazoli’s began remodeling some of its locations with a new, contemporary look and feel. In addition, the company introduced an upgraded menu using premium ingredients, which has been well received by guests.
