The owner of the Mellow Mushroom in West Chester said that his restaurant is looking to hire more than 100 employees and is targeting Labor Day, Sept. 3, as its opening date.
Kevin Molony, who also owns the Mellow Mushroom in Wilder, Ky., said on Tuesday that the restaurant will hold a job fair next week, Aug. 8-9, and then start training Aug. 22.
The job fair will be taking place at the Cincinnati Marriott North, 6189 Mulhauser Road, in West Chester from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. next Wednesday and Thursday. During the job fair, the restaurant will be looking servers, cooks (prep cooks, dough tossers), bartenders, dishwashers and hostesses.
The location of the Mellow Mushroom itself is in the former Rafferty’s at 9238 Floer Drive and Union Centre Boulevard.
Molony also said that the West Chester location is going to be “totally unique” and will feature an amusement park theme. The restaurant will feature a mushroom tree and ticket counter hostess stand, an arcade-type retail display, a $10,000 liquor display, a roller coaster car suspended from the ceiling, a lighted Zoltar art piece, the world’s largest marble and an open kitchen design where visitors can watch pizza dough being thrown.
