July 15 (Reuters) - Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc CMG.N said on Wednesday it plans to hire as many as 10,000 employees over the next few months to help support the expansion of drive-thru lanes at its restaurants.

The COVID-19 pandemic has curtailed dining-in at restaurants across the United States, resulting in a surge in online orders. Chipotle intends to cater to this demand by speeding up plans to add drive-thru lanes at its outlets.

The company said 60% of its new restaurants will feature a drive-thru, or "Chipotlane", where customers can pick-up orders without leaving their cars.

The burrito chain&aposs online sales jumped 80% in the first quarter and demand on the company&aposs app is not expected to fall any time soon, as virus cases spike in many Southern and Western states.

California, Chipotle&aposs biggest market, rolled back reopening plans on Monday and banned indoor restaurant dining.

Chipotle&aposs hiring blitz comes as the U.S. unemployment rate hovers in double digits, with data last week showing 32.9 million people collected unemployment checks in the third week of June.

Other restaurant chains such Domino&aposs Pizza Inc DPZ.N and McDonald&aposs Corp MCD.N have also said they would hire thousands more workers.

路透7月15日电-Chipotle墨西哥烧烤公司CMG.N周三表示,计划在未来几个月招聘多达10,000名员工,以帮助支持其餐厅免下车车道的扩张.

新冠肺炎的大流行减少了美国各地餐厅的同店就餐,导致在线订单激增。Chipotle打算通过加快在其门店增加得来速车道的计划来迎合这一需求。

该公司表示,其60%的新餐厅将采用得来速餐厅,即“Chipotane”,在那里顾客可以在不离开汽车的情况下拿到订单。

墨西哥玉米煎饼连锁店&aposs的在线销售额在第一季度跃升了80%,随着许多南部和西部州的病毒病例激增,对该公司&aposs应用程序的需求预计不会很快下降。

加利福尼亚州,Chipotle&aposs最大的市场,周一取消了重新开业计划,并禁止室内餐厅就餐。

Chipotle&aposs的招聘闪电战正值美国失业率徘徊在两位数之际,上周的数据显示,6月第三周有3,290万人领取了失业支票。

Domino&aposs Pizza Inc DPZ.N和McDonald&aposs Corp MCD.N等其他连锁餐厅也表示将再招聘数千名员工。
