Stop worrying about artificial intelligence.

It's good for business, according to Domino's Pizza (DPZ) CEO Patrick Doyle.

"We employ a lot more people today than we did 10 years ago when people were taking calls and orders on the phone," he said in an interview with TheStreet. "Technology ultimately drives efficiency, it drives a better experience for the customer - if you do that the business grows and it ultimately grows employment."

Domino's employs some 14,100 people, as of January 1, 2017.

Some 60% of Domino's sales comes from digital. 

"The majority of the interaction for ordering now on the front end is through digital. We've got a back end that is about delivering great tasting pizza quickly and efficiently but the front-end interaction with people now is really no different than it is at Amazon (AMZN) or eBay (EBAY) or any other technology company."
