Boss Pizza has announced plans to create 300 jobs when opening branches across the UK from March.
The new roles relate to franchising, marketing, logistics, warehousing, retail and customer service.
The expansion is expected to start in central Scotland and then move to northern England.
Managing Director Ajmal Mushtaq said: “There has been a big cultural shift in consumer attitudes towards takeaways over the past couple of years.
“Consumers are demanding higher quality food, more competitive prices and faster delivery – Boss Pizza is well positioned to meet these consumer demands.”
The business was born during the pandemic in 2020. As the restaurants were closed, they were hit by the loss of one of their main sources of income and looked for a way to resolve this loss.
A proprietary algorithm should streamline the order lifecycle, meaning customers get pizza faster than with competitors.
Chief Operating Officer Garry Saini said: “We have been overwhelmed by the success of our fresh dough pizza brand – this incredible business performance will now support our national expansion plans.”
Angela Crawley, MP for Lanark and Hamilton East, said: ‘I very much welcome this investment and the opportunities it will bring to hundreds of people in the area.
“These new jobs will provide a much-needed boost to employment and the local economy as we seek to rebound from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.”
The expansion will include both company-owned and franchise stores.
