Sugar Land, TX News (July 22, 2014) – Known for its authentic, fresh food, fun and eclectic atmosphere, Austin-based Tex-Mex restaurant Chuy’s, plans to open its eighth Houston area location in Sugar Land in late August. To prepare for the local launch the restaurant is now hiring approximately 160 team members.
“We are thrilled to finally open in Sugar Land,” said Kamel Basma, local Owner/Operator of the new location. “Chuy’s has had more requests for a Sugar Land location over the past few years than any other city in the country.”
To support its fun and family-friendly atmosphere, Chuy’s will be hiring a variety of positions, including front-of-the-house hosts, servers, bussers and bartenders. The Sugar Land restaurant is also hiring kitchen staff and tortilla experts to help prepare its made-from-scratch dishes and signature sauces. Full-time and part-time positions are available.
“We are looking for a team of fun and energetic people who have good attitudes and are just as passionate as we are about serving authentic and fresh food,” said Basma.
Interested applicants can visit the hiring trailer Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., located in the restaurant parking lot at 320 Highway 6 in Sugar Land.
Chuy’s is currently finishing construction on the Sugar Land location. The restaurant is designed with the company’s philosophy: “If you’ve seen one Chuy’s, you’ve seen one Chuy’s.” Chuy’s Sugar Land will incorporate unique design elements, such as a “dog wall” featuring pictures of local canines, as well as Chuy’s décor staples: sculpted metal palm trees, hubcaps on the ceiling and a shrine to Elvis Presley. Chuy’s Happy Hour offers their Fully-Loaded Nacho Car with chips, salsa, queso and ground sirloin available for free weekdays from 4-7 p.m.
