Over 450 persons respond to KFC’s open job call


Well over 450 persons turned up at the Blue Lagoon hotel on Tuesday in answer to an open job call which had been put out by the new owners of the local KFC franchise.

Kelly and Tessa Glass, the new owners of the franchise, announced last week that they had been awarded the franchise by Yum Restaurants Inc and called on interested job seekers to apply.{{more}}

In a brief interview on Wednesday, Tessa disclosed that they were only able to interview 450 on Tuesday.

“We were able to interview 450 people. Those who came after that, we would not have been able to because there were so many people there,” Glass said, adding that they may follow up with additional interviews later.

KFC had operated in St Vincent and the Grenadines for 29 years under a franchise owned by KFC (St Vincent) Ltd, a subsidiary of St Clair Investments, whose managing director is Ormiston “Ken” Boyea.

On March 9, 2015, the doors of the franchise’s three restaurants in St Vincent were closed when the company went into receivership, placing approximately 100 workers on the breadline.
