SOUTH MIAMI-DADE (CBSMiami) – The first of 2 South Florida locations for the fast growing Red Robin burger restaurant chain is planning an April opening, and it’s looking for about 100 people to staff the first restaurant, which will open at The Falls.
The restaurant is the first Red Robin in this part of Florida, which has 6 other locations in the state, mostly on the west coast and the Tampa area.
While the restaurant at The Falls will open in the space occupied by the “Hops” restaurant which closed last year, a hiring office has been set next to the T-Mobil store in the mall. Walk-in applicants can visit 8888 SW 136th St., store 406, to apply, or they can apply online here.
The opening at The Falls is the first foray by Red Robin into the South Florida market, but the company is looking at an expanded presence here.
Spokesperson Jamie Winter said the company already has plans to expand into Broward County later in 2012, at a still unannounced Pembroke Pines location.
The company is also planning 2 other restaurants in the Tampa area in 2012.
Red Robin bills itself as the Gourmet Burger expert, and has more than 450 locations in the US and Canada. Red robin pushes customer service and food made with fresh ingredients.
The first Red Robin opened in 1969 in Seattle.
