For the fifth year in a row, Rockstar Pizza employees earned a share of the profits, Rockstar Pizza owner Colby Mathews told FOX Business’ Cheryl Casone on Monday. She said 2019 was the most successful year yet for the initiative.
When the community caught wind of Rockstar’s profit-sharing Christmas, the phone calls “got out of control,” according to Mathews.
“Sometimes these things just catch fire and it caught fire for sure,” Mathews said.
Restaurant management allows employees to set their own hours on Christmas Day, according to Mathews, and allows them to decide if they are going to do dine-in or carry-out. Rockstar’s general manager Rob Notter said this Christmas, the plan was to do carry-out from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. with preorders starting at 3 p.m.
“Our shop us very community-focused and we give back a lot to the community," Mathews said. "It’s sort of just what we do."
The restaurant plans to carry on the tradition in 2020 and expects to have “much more staff,” according to general manager Rob Notter. He said they also may add a few elements next Christmas.
“It was just nice to be recognized by the community, you know, that we work for day-in, day-out to provide a very good service,” Notter said.
