MrJims.Pizza, a popular nationwide pizza chain based in Dallas, keeps getting more and more popular amidst COVID-19. So popular that owner and namesake, Jim Johnson, featured recently in Scientology Network’s Meet a Scientologist, opened five new locations this year, with another five on the runway, and created 200 new jobs to keep up with the surge in demand.
It’s no secret the restaurant business across the nation has been decimated by the pandemic. In Texas alone, 10,000 restaurants have closed their doors and unemployment levels hit record highs—so the 200 new jobs created is cause for celebration in itself.
“I’m thrilled to be able to provide these jobs and expand in this time of darkness,” said Jim. “My staff are making huge bonuses—their income is practically doubled and they are over the moon.”
Back in 2006, Jim sensed the future appeal of online ordering. MrJims.Pizza was the first pizza chain in the nation to offer that option to its customers, and Jim credits that early decision and his implementation of Hubbard Administrative Technology as the main drivers of his company’s incredible success.
“At the beginning of the pandemic, we were thankful just to stay open. I’m blessed for this past year’s success amid the tragedy. Sales keep going up, we’re starving for employees and actually have another five locations slated to open this year.”
Now, with over 50 locations throughout the nation and sales increasing exponentially, it’s safe to say you can add pizza to the list of what is essential during a pandemic.
