COURTNEY Moss loves working at Domino's in Byron Bay.

The happy 22-year-old assistant manager has worked at the Byron store for six months and before that spent two years at Domino's in Ballina.

"The staff here are just fantastic, it's a great place to work, everyone is so friendly," she said.

"And Byron Bay is such a nice place to work and our customers are just the best."

Seventeen-year-old casual employee Tawanda M'zumguleigh, who has been working at Domino's Byron Bay for four years, agrees with Courtney.

"Everyone here at work is my friend and we have lots of fun," he said.

The happy workplace has earned the Byron Bay pizza outlet the title of the happiest Domino's workplace in the nation, with the store winning the national prize for Lowest Store Team Turnover of any Domino's store across Australia and New Zealand.

Domino's CEO Don Meij said the award for Lowest Store Team Turnover was recognition of a store with a great working culture.

"This award says that team members working at the Byron Bay store are happy, and that is because of the strong management team at the store creating an excellent working culture for the team," Mr Meij said.

"I daresay that in this case, the location may also be a factor in team members choosing to hang around."

Ryan de Vink, NSW state operations manager who oversees the Byron Bay store was last year named State Operations Manager of the Year.

"Low staff turnover means the team is used to working together, and each team member is trained regularly and refining their pizza making skills," Mr de Vink said.

"The customers at Byron Bay recognise the same faces in the store each time they visit, and receive consistent hot, fresh and tasty pizzas week in, week out."

Courtney said she is proud of the win.
