(Reuters) - Domino's Pizza Inc DPZ.N and its franchisees would hire more than 20,000 people, including delivery experts and pizza makers, in the United States, the restaurant chain said on Monday.

The pizza chain's move follows those of its peers, including McDonald's Corp MCD.N, Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc CMG.N and Dunkin Brands Group Inc DNKN.O, which have added tens of thousands of workers in recent weeks.

Domino’s said both part-time and full-time positions would also include customer service representatives, managers, and assistant managers.

The company, one of the few food chains to post a sales rise in the latest quarterly results, introduced contactless delivery and ‘carside’ delivery options for carry-out orders to strengthen sales at a time most restaurants have shuttered dine-in areas.
