IF you work in a pizza shop and you like your bosses it can mean only one thing - that's amore!

And pizza delivery driver Karen Ricks certainly is struck by the owners of a big pizza pie.

As a driver for Domino's in Rockhampton, Ms Ricks said her new bosses were brilliant and she couldn't be happier.

She said the new owners took over the Glenmore and Bridge sts stores last June.

"They are a young married couple, aged in their 30s, with small children and are very nice people to work for," Ms Ricks said.

"James Dooley is from the Sunshine Coast and his wife, Jennifer, is a Rockhampton girl who has returned here to live and raise her family after getting a taste of the big smoke.

"They had a successful business in Melbourne but have returned to Rockhampton to live and work."

And Ms Ricks said they are the best bosses she has ever worked for.

"I like them because they are the kindest, most thoughtful owner/managers I have ever had the pleasure to work for," Ms Ricks said.

"And they have even given me a bonus - that is the first bonus ever in the 34 years I have worked in the hospitality industry and I've been doing that since I was just 15.

"And the best thing about James is that he never loses his cool and no matter what drama occurs throughout the day he rises above it and is able to keep everyone calm.

"They reward good behaviour and they encourage teamwork as well as providing employment opportunities for young and old alike.

"James and Jennifer, to me, are good role models for other young couples in the region who may have a dream of owning a business."

And Ms Ricks said the job was also ideal for her because she is studying her masters degree in creative writing at university during the day and can work at night delivering "the best pizzas in town".
