This highly anticipated restaurant will be the newest addition to OWA’s 520-acre resort destination in Foley, Alabama. Slated to open November 2019, recruitment for more than 200 new positions is beginning now online; two major Job Fairs are also set for October 7 and 21.
    "We are excited to begin final preparations for the November opening of Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen OWA,” states Kristin Hellmich, OWA Marketing & Public Relations Director. “It’s important for applicants interested in joining the team at Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen to embrace an energetic, caring approach that will deliver unforgettable moments for guests."
    Employment opportunities include servers, hostesses, retail, bakery, food/line prep, and bussers. If you have energy, enthusiasm, and team spirit, then Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen wants you!
    “While interested applicants can apply online now, we will also be taking a traditional job fair approach to discover the best and brightest talent for the many available roles,” states Hellmich. “Potential employees will be pre-screened through one-on-one interviews to gauge personality, problem-solving skills and experience.” 
    Due to Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen OWA being actively under construction, no applications or interviews will be received at the restaurant.

The recruiting center will be open from 8am-5pm starting Monday, September 30. The temporary address is 1501 S. OWA Boulevard, Unit 101-G, Foley, AL 36535.
