The wait is nearly over! We’re excited to share that the hotly anticipated new Culver’s restaurant on Montrose Avenue in Ravenswood will open later this month. In preparation, ownership is holding a job fair this Friday and Saturday. Their goal is to hire 40 to 50 full- and part-time employees, for both and day and evening positions. The job fair will take place on location, at 1819 W Montrose Ave, from 4pm-8pm on Fri., 5/7, and 10am-4pm on Sat., 5/8.
“We see our job as mentoring our team members so they can grow their careers with us and even became owners of a restaurant,” said Baron Waller, owner and one of the mentors who grew up on Chicago’s West Side and earned his MBA at the University of Michigan. “It’s important that we work in the community to provide people of all ages with new opportunities that offer the skills and experience which prepare them for whatever future endeavors and career path they choose. It is one of the best ways to build a brighter future,” added Mr. Waller.
Prior restaurant experience is a plus, but it is not necessary because Culver’s offers on-going training. Attending the job fair in person will guarantee a face-to-face interview. Interested applicants who are unable to be there in person can still apply by visiting www.culvers.com/careers.
Just steps from the Montrose Brown Line station, this will be the first “pedestrian-friendly” Culver’s restaurant. The location feature’sa take-out window, seating for 100, and no drive-thru. It will be the third Culver’s restaurant in Chicago for Mr. Waller, who owns one in Bronzeville and has another opening in Pullman this fall. In addition to the three city locations, he also owns three Culver’s restaurants in the southwest suburbs.
“I’m so excited that Baron has chosen to bring Culver’s to Ravenswood” said Craig Culver, cofounder of Culver’s. “We look forward to bringing Culver’s mission to life in these communities and the city’s North Side, and are committed to ensuring that every guest and every employee who chooses Culver’s leaves happy.”
