New Restaurant Uses Workforce to Hire Staff

Bookmark and Share

Local investors have brought a trendy new eatery to Beaumont, Pita Pit, and needed assistance in staffing up for the restaurant’s opening.

Rogelio Roger, Pita Pit’s manager, contacted Workforce Center staff to help recruit 20–25 new workers -- cashiers, wait staff, supervisors and others -- for the restaurant which is slated to open late September. Roger noted that Pita Pit’s company culture is one that believes in rewarding successful employees with advancement opportunities.

Since September 1, Workforce Center staff has referred more than 100 applicants for the various job openings. Rogelio has made employment offers to as many as 20 job seekers. He is currently using the Beaumont Workforce Center to assess and interview new workers. Rogelio also stated that the restaurant investors plan to take advantage of business tax incentives available through the Work Opportunity Tax Credit program.

According to Workforce Solutions Specialist David McClesky, “We are looking forward to seeing a positive end-result to our partnership with Pita Pit. Together, we are putting job seekers to work!”
