A job fair will be hosted on Saturday, Oct. 9 at the Gilbert location at Baseline Road and Val Vista Drive. The event lasts from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m
Up to 50 people will be hired for a variety of positions.
The restaurant’s frozen fruit drinks and fries earned a cult following in southern Arizona since opening its first kitchen in 1971.
Eegee’s announced plans to open five total restaurants across the Valley along with other locations in Tucson.
