Today, Denny’s announced its plans to hire 20,000 restaurant-level employees at both company-owned and franchise-operated restaurants across the United States. To aid the effort, Denny’s is launching the America’s Diner Hiring Tour and also launched a brand-new site, Careers., for jobseekers to apply to, as part of its nationwide America’s Diner Hiring Event.

During the tour, Denny’s will travel Historic Route 66 from St. Louis to Los Angeles making multiple stops along the way, including Oklahoma City, Okla., Albuquerque, N.M., and Flagstaff, Ariz., to help people apply for jobs. The America’s Diner Hiring Tour will take place between Monday, June 28 to Friday, July 2 and will give attendees the opportunity to learn about the 20,000 hourly positions currently available across the country including cooks, host/hostess, servers, service assistants and restaurant managers.

“With the country continuing to open back up, Denny’s is committed to inviting Americans across the country to get back to work,” says John Miller, Chief Executive Officer at Denny’s Corporation. “The America’s Diner Hiring Tour experience allows interviewees to get one-on-one assistance with their applications and find the right position for them. We are glad to be able to mobilize the hiring experience to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible for applicants.”

The America’s Diner Hiring Tour is designed to support all job seekers, regardless of their level of experience, professional field, or background, and at each location there will be application stations set up for job seekers to easily apply. As a special treat for applying onsite during the tour, Denny’s will be giving out its new Red, White and Blue Pancake Breakfast to all applicants from its 53-foot food truck. The crave-able new creation features a light and fluffy stack of pancakes crafted with fresh buttermilk and blueberries and topped with freshly sliced strawberries, a drizzle of cream cheese icing and a dollop of sweet, whipped cream, served up with two eggs, golden hash browns, plus two crispy bacon strips or sausage links.

The America’s Diner Hiring Tour will be stopping at the following Denny’s locations:

  • Monday, June 28, at 8 a.m. – 10575 Watson Road, St. Louis, Mo.
  • Tuesday, June 29, at 8 a.m. – 1617 SW 74th Street, Oklahoma City, Okla.
  • Wednesday, June 30, at 1 p.m. – 1602 Coors Road NW, Albuquerque, N.M.
  • Thursday, July 1, at 8 a.m. – 2306 E Lucky Lane, Flagstaff, Ariz.
  • Friday, July 2, at 8 a.m. – 7 East Huntington Drive, Arcadia, Calif.

Separately, the America’s Diner Hiring Event offers another special incentive for those who apply nationwide and get invited back for an interview. The first 25 interviewees at each of Denny’s 1,600+ brick-and-mortar locations will receive a coupon for a free Red, White and Blue Pancake Breakfast to be redeemed at that visit or through Tuesday, August 31.*
