Mr Mikes will soon be opening their doors in Williams Lake.
President of the company, Darren Flintoff says they have a tentative opening date of June 12, 2017.
“I think we’re ahead of schedule, we just don’t want to move the opening any earlier because there’s a lot of dates with 9 other restaurants. We’re busy delivering on those as well.”
Flintoff says a roof top patio will not be happening right away as the permitting was slowing them down and they wanted to keep forging ahead with the restaurant side.
“There’ll be a meeting space which some restaurants have, some don’t. We’re not really a cookie cutter square box concept. We think we got a pretty neat site downtown there on the corner. Our managers are together training right now so they’re looking forward to it. I think we’re going to do the community very well.”
A job fair for the casual steakhouse is set to take place on May 6.
Flintoff says they hoping to hire more than 80 people.
