Crews are putting final touches on the Culver's of Grain Valley, set to open at 10:00am on Monday, June 5th. Operating Partner Connor Hartnett said the weather was very cooperative during the construction process and hiring has gone very well. This is the 12th location for the operating group, and Hartnett had one piece of advice for those planning to join them on opening day.
"Come hungry," Hartnett said.
Hartnett said they will be well prepared to serve guests on day one, thanks to support from leadership at other stores in their group.
"We're really fortunate in our organization to have a lot of restaurants in the Kansas City area, so we are able to pull trainers from all of those locations to make sure our team is well prepared and trained by the best."
Hiring has gone well at the Grain Valley location, but they are still welcoming additional applicants 16 and older during an open hiring event this week (May 22 - 26 from 11:00am - 2:00pm or 3:00pm - 6:00pm).
"We've been super fortunate as far as hiring is concerned," Hartnett said.
Hartnett said their people are what make their restaurants stand out among other quick service options.
"We really work to make sure every person we hire is not just a good employee, but a good person. It may sound corny, but we really are a family here, and that is how we approach our hiring."
For those planning to dine on opening day, Hartnett suggests guests turn at the light on Jefferson and use the access road behind the restaurant to eliminate any traffic jams on Buckner Tarsney Road.
Following a ribbon cutting hosted by the Grain Valley Chamber of Commerce on Saturday, June 3rd, the restaurant will open to the public on Monday, June 5th at 10:00am.
Culver's of Grain Valley is located at 1180 NW Buckner Tarsney Road.
