All of our employees have the opportunity to learn everything we do in the stores, from making salads and subs, to running a register and making pizzas. No matter what station our employees oversee, their main job at Dion’s is to uphold our five company Values – Great Food - Fast, Friendly Service - Clean, Comfortable Locations - Be Excellent - Win Together.
Each Dion’s location employs 60-80 people. We hire enthusiastic people – most of whom are high school or college-aged. We provide a challenging and fun environment that results in rewards such as pride, self-esteem, personal integrity, and independence. And of course, lots of pizza and Ranch. For many of our employees, Dion’s is their first job. We give them a foundation and work ethic that will serve them throughout their lives.
Because all cooking is done from scratch, we have an extensive training program for both new employees and upper management to ensure consistent quality. We strongly believe in promoting from within, offering many of our employees advancement opportunities in our company.
