TYLER, Texas (KETK) – The new Bubba’s 33 coming to East Texas is looking to hire 200 staff members.

The restaurant is going to be located on 4504 S. Broadway Avenue in Tyler and they are searching for full and part-time employees to be pizza makers, meat cutters, hosts, servers, bartenders, dishwashers and server assistants. The business is hoping to open their doors in November to serve lunch and dinner.

Bubba’s 33 will be 7,500 square feet. Those who would like to apply for jobs can click here or apply at the hiring trailer in the restaurant parking lot.

College students have an opportunity to apply for tuition reimbursement after 90 days on the job.

“We will reimburse $2500 a semester. It’s huge. And for someone who worked their way through college in a restaurant, that’s a really great opportunity to work while you’re in college,” said Lerin Pennington, a local Bubba’s 33 owner.

Hiring managers will be available Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday by appointment. 

Pennington said she and her husband have eyed this location for five years and cannot wait to be open to the public.

“I definitely think this is the definite place that we wanted to bring our family here in Tyler and build our own family with the restaurant family here at Bubba’s 33,” said Pennington.

The restaurant will have an open-air garage bar and serve food items like hand-stretched stone-baked pizza, fresh burgers and wings.

The Bubba’s 33 in Tyler will be their 40th location in the country, and the second in East Texas. The first restaurant opened in 2013 in Fayetteville, North Carolina and was recognized as Best New Restaurant and Best Sports Restaurant by the Fayetteville Observer.
