Sent to the Weekly from Mitch Levy, on behalf of Tucson Originals:
"I am writing because of the report of the chain restaurant Krispy Kreme folding its tents in Tucson. As you are may be aware, the Tucson Originals, a group of 40 independently owned restaurants in Tucson are all about helping the community. It is this group that supports local schools and local fundraisers and local charities (ie Dine Out For Safety for SACASA, Primavera Cooks for the Primavera Foundation, Puttin’ on the Dog for the Tucson Humane Society and many, many more).
We are based in the community and we take care of the community. The member restaurants range from breakfast places like Frank’s and Francisco’s to fine dining restaurants like Janos, Cuvee and Kingfisher to casual dining like Pastiche and Feast to family style restaurants like Mama Louisa’s. The Originals are very diversified in styles.
At this point, I as the Tucson Originals Vice President would like to once again do everything I can to help the community. The closing of Krispy Kreme has left many Tucson restaurant workers jobless in the middle of the slow season here in Tucson. As we have done in the past, we are opening our doors to our neighbors and helping them in times of need.
I am in the process of putting together a list of the available jobs with the Tucson Originals and will try to have them posted on our web site. Until that is active (which may be a few days) the workers can contact me at email@example.com or call Cuvee at 881-7577. We will be updating the list as the Tucson Originals restaurants get their information about their available positions to me. These jobs could very likely become permanent.
We are here to stay, this is our community and we are here to take care of it."
If you know any Krispy Kreme employees, please tell them about this opportunity.
