Roanoke, Virginia – Two small businesses in Roanoke will hold a hiring event as they are looking to hire people as soon as possible.
Due to a shortage in staff, Village Grill and Scratch Biscuit are currently running on a modified schedule.
The owner of the two restaurants, Nathan Webster, will be holding a hiring event in order to fill about 15 full-and-part-time positions.
“I don’t think there’s one singular issue that’s going to fix it. I think it’s just culmination of everything happening at the same time, and the only thing that’s honestly going to fix this is just time, everybody getting comfortable getting out, coming back to work,” said Webster in regard to the worker shortage.
The event will be held on Thursday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Village Grill.
Anyone interested for the positions will get free pizza from Grace’s Pizza and will be interviewed on the spot.
