With the release of its latest quarter earnings report, Dairy Queen has announced the hiring of two new senior managers.
The company also said that it had made a $2 million investment in its food services operations in order to hire 200 new workers.
The company also noted that it has increased its workforce by 1,500 people.
The new hiring is expected to help meet a demand for more food service workers, including cooks, food service managers, and restaurant associates.
Dairy Queen is the latest company to announce a significant increase in workers.
The number of people working at the nation’s largest fast-food chain rose from 2.7 million in 2015 to 3.2 million in 2016.
And in 2017, the number of employees rose from 1.8 million to 1.9 million.
While Dairy Queen does not break down the number who work for the company on its website, a survey by the National Employment Law Project found that the company has hired 1,600 people since January 2016, a 25% increase.
