While many corporations are conducting layoffs because of economic hardships, Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ - News) has a program that pays prospective franchise owners while they learn how to run a successful store. As part of its new Franchisee-in-Training (FIT) program, Domino's has positions open for enthusiastic individuals seeking exciting careers in business ownership. Domino's is looking for college graduates in entrepreneurial programs and military veterans among others who would like the chance to someday own their own business.

To prepare and develop these future entrepreneurs, Domino's will introduce them to a 24-36 month hands-on program that focuses on the operations and business management aspects of the company. Job responsibilities in the Franchisee-in-Training program include the following:

  • Assistant Manager
  • General Manager
  • Manager of Corporate Operations in Training
  • Manager of Corporate Operations

"We recognize that in order for Domino's to maintain its position as the world leader in pizza delivery, we need exceptional franchisees who own and operate their stores better than anyone else in the industry," says Scott Hinshaw, Domino's executive vice president of franchise operations & development. "To achieve this and add to the strength of our existing franchisees, we are generating a strong pipeline of franchisees by recruiting highly energized, highly motivated, hard charging men and women who want to become wildly successful multi-store business owners. We are taking these high performers through a fantastic training program focusing on the keys to our successful business model--developing phenomenal people, consistently delivering the absolute best product and service, implementing strategic and aggressive local store marketing programs and developing strong business management skills."

Coupled with their in-store operations training, FIT program participants engage in targeted business and operations training including Domino's High Performance General Manager Training, Effective Supervision Training, Franchise Development Training, and Advanced Computer Training. Candidates who successfully complete the training program will be provided with $25,000 to help get their store up and going.
