Willie’s Grill & Icehouse is looking for friendly team players ready to help open the Texas giant’s highly anticipated first location in Pearland, Texas. Willie’s is currently interviewing candidates for more than 100 positions. The interviews are taking place in a designated space nestled in the same shopping center as the new restaurant, located at 2600 Smith Ranch Road, Pearland, TX 77584. Set to open in mid-January 2022, Willie’s Pearland will be the 19th location for the beloved brand.
Willie’s Pearland will be the second Willie’s outpost to feature a full bar, which creates exciting opportunities for bartenders at the location. Other positions will include servers, cooks, counter team members, bussers, and dishwashers. Willie’s has developed an innovative service model focusing on efficiency and anticipating guests’ needs, which helps to ensure bigger tip pools for servers. Willie’s actively promotes and hires from within, believing every position has the potential for long-term career growth.
Interviews are conducted all day, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Applicants should make their way to Willie’s Pearland and follow the signage to the temporary hiring center, located next to Old Navy. Applicants should arrive ready to fill out applications and interview that same day.
“At every location, the secret to success is our people,” said Greg Lippert, CEO of Willie’s Restaurants. “Over one of the most challenging periods for restaurants in recent history, Willie’s hasn’t just survived–we’ve grown. We believe that’s a testament to Willie’s culture, and the superior experience we deliver not only for our guests, but for our own team members.” 
This fall has been an especially busy season for Willie’s, which introduced two mouthwatering new sandwiches–the Texas Patty Melt and the Cajun Fire Chicken Sandwich–on Nov. 3.
Willie’s is Texas’ favorite icehouse, where giant retractable garage walls open to reveal spacious open-air patios full of games and plenty of room for relaxing, playing, and enjoying one another. The restaurant’s outsized menu includes already-legendary burgers, headline-grabbing sandwiches, crave-worthy tacos, tender ribs, giant chicken fried steaks, and other Texas staples, alongside Willie’s signature Frozen Jack & Coke and Willie’s Ritas. Since its launch in 1993, Willie’s has become an institution, trusted and loved by millions as a family-friendly haven offering genuine fun and flavors for all ages.
