170 jobs up for grabs as new company comes to Louisville

Louisville, KY -

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – As the economy continues its roller coaster ride, there's good news: jobs are actually being added in Kentuckiana.

Approximately 170 jobs are up for grabs at a new business opening this fall right in front of Oxmoor Mall; more specifically, inside Oxmoor Court.

Chuy's will open its first Kentuckiana location inside the former Bahama Breeze at 104 Oxmoor Court.  Work continues both inside and outside for the mid-October opening of the tex-mex restaurant.

The addition of the jobs is welcome news for the economy. Recently-released numbers show that the average jobless rate in the Commonwealth for July 2010 came in at just under 10%.

Analysts say that's better than past months, but add that there's still a lot of work to be done.  The 170 new jobs at Chuy's will take a bite out of the unemployment numbers.

The Austin, Texas based company has officials on site of the Louisville location to take applications during the month of September.

Officials started to take applications on Tuesday, September 7 at 9:00 am, but at 8:00 am, there was already a line.  That didn't surprise company officials.

"It's something exciting coming to Louisville, it's a new restaurant.  The economy has not been the best over the last few years; you're hearing more about businesses closing," said Chuy's business partner Mike Molestina.

To apply, simply head to the parking lot and look for a makeshift office set up outside. It's a good idea to bring documents like your driver's license, social security card, resume, and references.

WAVE 3 is also hosting a virtual job fair now through Friday, September 10. Simply click here to find out more about JobLink.
