Fresh & Easy to Open 10 SoCal Stores Next Year
Tesco-owned Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market plans to open 10 stores in southern California early next year, and is currently looking to hire more than 210 employees to run them.
"We're creating even more good paying jobs with competitive pay and comprehensive benefits every time we open another store," said Fresh & Easy's CEO, Tim Mason. "Our people are the most important part of our business and we look forward to growing our incredible team."
Entry-level positions at Fresh & Easy start at $10 an hour in California and the grocer offers quarterly bonuses of up to 10 percent as well as a 401(k) with company match. The company believes everyone deserves access to affordable and comprehensive healthcare and provides all employees the opportunity to work at least 20 hours per week, which entitles them to vision, prescription drug, dental, and medical coverage with Fresh & Easy paying at least 75 percent of the costs.
Following are the opening dates and locations of the planned Southern California stores:
- January 12: El Cajon
- February 9: Lake Forest, Costa Mesa, and San Diego
- February 16: Oceanside, Walnut Park, and Ventura
- February 23: Camarillo and San Dimas
- March 30: Long Beach
El Segundo, Calif.-based Fresh & Easy operates more than 150 stores in California, Arizona, and Nevada.
