Blue Water Grill to hold job fair

Downtown Millsboro’s Blue Water Grill is looking to reopen soon, following an electrical fire on March 28 that forced the restaurant to temporarily close for repairs. Months later, Blue Water is now set to host a job fair to hire staff, with the restaurant’s reopening in sight.

“We’re looking for every position,” said Jess Wiggins, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Josh.

The job fair will be held at the restaurant Aug. 5-7, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We’re just going to have people apply right there on the spot,” she said. “We’ll hold initial interviews at that time and schedule secondary interviews.”

Wiggins said they are looking for experienced staff members and encourage applicants to bring résumés; however, they are not required.

Although there isn’t yet a firm date for the reopening of the restaurant, Wiggins said she and her husband are excited to return to serving the community.

“We definitely miss the town and the people, and we look forward to reopening. We hope it’ll be better than anyone remembers,” she said. “We’re implementing some new changes, so it should be exciting.”

Blue Water Grill is located at 226 Main Street in downtown Millsboro. For updates on Blue Water Grill, visit their Facebook page, at
