Arizona restaurateur Sam Fox is bringing The Yard to his native Tucson, and is hiring almost 200 positions in anticipation of its opening.
Culinary Dropout, the anchor of Fox Restaurant Concepts’ Yard developments, will be hosting a job fair Aug. 21 through Sept. 2 at the new location in the former Grant Road Lumber Yard at 2543 E. Grant Road the northeast corner of Grant and Tucson Boulevard in central Tucson.
The restaurant is hiring line cooks, prep cooks, pastry cooks, dishwashers, servers, bartenders and hosts/hostesses.
The new space opens Sept. 20.
Fox is also in the process of opening The Yard in downtown Gilbert, which will be the largest one to date. Fox paid slightly more than $1 million for the parcel.
The Tucson development will cost less than his Tempe location of The Yard, which cost around $11 million.
