Eagle Boys delivery driver makes record 10,000 deliveries

Steve Coulson, who works from the Warner store in Brisbane's north, cracked the 10,000 pizza milestone, as Eagle Boys pushes its new campaign to recruit a record number of drivers across its national network in 2016.

“To be honest I wasn’t even counting,” said Coulson who used to work in the Australian Defence Force.

“It doesn’t seem like that long ago I started with Eagle Boys. The next thing you know I’ve delivered 10,000 pizzas and now I’m actually getting closer to 11,000. The job really works for me because I need a reliable income but I also need flexibility of hours and Eagle Boys really gives me that. I enjoy the work because I like driving and I like getting out there and meeting new people when I’m on the road.”

Coulson, in his 50s, is also dispelling the myth that says delivery divers have to be young.

“I don’t see how age comes into it. What I know is that I really enjoy this work and there is a great camaraderie at Eagle Boys so I enjoy coming to work every shift,” he said.

Eagle Boys National Sales and Marketing Manager, Clare O’Brien, said Steve was a great example of how rewarding a pizza delivery position could be and there were almost no rules as to who could be employed.

“Provided you have a licence and a car, all bets are off. Steve is in his 50s and used to be in the ADF. Before you know it he’s clocked up 10,000 pizzas and made thousands of our hungry customers very happy. And he’s made Eagle Boys very happy,” O’Brien said.

“If you’re out there and you’re struggling to find work, or maybe you’re studying and you need money to get by, or maybe you’re retired and would like some extra money, then give your local Eagle Boys store a call or drop in and ask them how they’re going for delivery drivers. There’s a good chance you’ll get a positive response and we’d love to have you on board.”
