CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WWBT) - Two new restaurant openings will bring 250 jobs to Chesterfield County.

Restaurant group HOUSEpitality Family will open two restaurants at Chesterfield Towne Center, Island Shrimp Co. and Casa del Barco. Both restaurants are hiring 125 people ahead of opening.

Island Shrimp Co. is the newest concept from the group, offerings flavors from tropical port cities for a port-to-plate experience.

The Casa del Barco at Chesterfield Towne Center is the group’s third location of the concept, offering regionally inspired Mexican cuisine.

HOUSEpitality will host a job fair to hire for 125 of those positions from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26 at the Training and Recruitment Center located across from the H&M exterior entrance at Chesterfield Towne Center.

The company previously held job fairs in August and in September for the first round of new hires.

“There is a saying in our culture at HOUSEpitality Family that the most important position is every position,” says Emmy Finch, director of human resources, training, and development for HOUSEpitality Family. “We tell applicants that this is an entirely different type of serving job or kitchen job than you have ever experienced. We help our employees grow and we like to have a good time in the process.”

The restaurants are hiring for cooks, servers, bartenders, hosts, dishwashers and support staff. Those interested should fill out an application online prior to the interview.
