Taco Bell plans to hire 30,000 people this summer

Taco Bell plans to hire 30,000 people this summer

Taco Bell says it has committed to hiring 30,000 people nationwide this summer.

The Irvine-based company announced the goal on Thursday, May 21, saying in a news release that its franchisees and licensees are on board but will set their own hiring practices.

Jobs will be full- and part-time and include new positions created in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the news release said.

Taco Bell operates 7,000 restaurants in the United States and another 500 in 30 other markets. Ninety-five percent of its U.S. restaurants remain open in the midst of the pandemic, but most are only providing takeout and delivery.

Taco Bell has stated its commitment to providing its staff with a safe work environment through such measures as deep cleaning, requiring workers to wear gloves and masks, and providing contactless service with cash passed in sanitized trays.

Restaurants have been hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak. Spending at eating and drinking places is at its lowest level since 1984, the National Restaurant Association reported last week. It said April sales were at  $ 32.4 billion compared with $ 65.4 billion in February. The trade association was using preliminary data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Earlier in May, it reported that nearly nearly 6 million restaurant jobs have been lost.

Taco Bell’s parent company is Yum Brands, which also owns Pizza Hut and WingStreet and recently acquired The Habit Burger Grill.
