PROVIDENCE – Rhode Island-based job-search and recruitment website Gulpfish.com has partnered with regional Taco Bell franchisee Lockwood/McKinnon Co., which owns and operates 22 Taco Bell franchises in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Under the partnership, Lockwood/McKinnon will use Gulpfish as its main source for all new hires, the company said. Lockwood/McKinnon and Taco Bell join Dunkin Donuts, T.G.I. Friday’s, Papa Gino’s Pizzeria and D’Angelo Grilled Sandwiches as Gulpfish employer partners.
Gulpfish helps employers attract a larger applicant pool by making it convenient and easy for job seekers to apply. Through the company’s partnership with Lockwood/McKinnon, applicants who already have an account on Gulpfish.com can immediately apply for Taco Bell jobs by scanning a QR code on each franchise’s drive-through order terminals and windows.
“We like to refer to this as our ‘apply and drive’ technique,” said Ilya Reikhrud, president and CEO of Gulpfish. “Customers will see our QR code decals at not only the drive through window, but also on the doors of the restaurants with details on where to apply online.”
