It was four months ago when Grand Rapids Garage Bar & Grill announced they would be opening a brand new location to serve Ada residents. Before that can happen, the restaurant needs staff to help them get ready for the opening.

Every Saturday in October (2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th), the restaurant will hold a hiring event from 11a-3p at their new location at 518 Ada Dr. Per WZZM, people whom are interested can just show up and meet with the owner and executive chef/GM. Garage Bar is hiring for all positions including cooks, wait staff, bartenders. Part-time and full-time jobs are both available and pay begins at $15/hour for some positions.

The newly-hired staff will be trained at the Ottawa Ave. location in Grand Rapids. About 50 people are expected to get the job.

The original announcement said that the one in Ada would be opening this fall. Well... Wednesday is the first day of Fall so that could mean any day now. However, an opening date has not been revealed yet. Follow their Facebook page for updates.

Back in May, Garage Bar's owner, Kevin Farhat, said he decided to add this new site because of the growing scene in the Ada area. Farhat remodeled a former realty building and did a complete remodel. The concept will be similar with an open-air patio and garage doors.  A rendering can be seen below.
