FORT MYERS, Fla. (Dec. 16, 2013) – Bennett’s Fresh Roast will host a job fair at its new Sanibel location at 1020 Periwinkle Way, next to the Lazy Flamingo restaurant, this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 19 to 21, from 1 to 5 p.m.
Bennett’s owner Bob Grissinger is hoping to fill more than a dozen full-time, year-round positions including cooks, dishwashers, servers, doughnut makers and finishers. Complete training is available.
The shop is expected to open before the end of the year.
Bennett’s Fresh Roast has prided itself on its fresh-from-scratch doughnuts made daily and being the only Fort Myers’ shop to serve fresh roasted coffee from the finest beans resulting in the most flavorful and freshest cup of coffee around. For the past five years, the Bennett’s team has been known for unveiling delicious new doughnut concoctions from flavors including maple bacon, pumpkin spice, maple toffee crunch, s’mores and more. The shop has also become known for surprising offerings like its limited sale (which sold out) of Kopi Luwak coffee, often called “cat-poo coffee” after the prized bean from Indonesia that’s eaten by wild civets, passed through the animal’s digestive tract, and then collected and processed for brewing.
In addition to fresh roasted coffee and hand-cut-from-scratch doughnuts, Bennett’s also offers fresh desserts from Grissinger’s own recipe book including praline bread pudding, lemon bars and pies, giving area residents an alternative for afternoon treats. Bennett’s also features packaged whole bean or ground coffees, breakfast muffins, oatmeal and breakfast sandwiches. On the weekends, Bennett’s Strata (a layered baked breakfast dish) is a regular sellout. Tea lovers can choose from a large variety of Harney & Sons Fine Teas.
Lunch offerings, including paninis, soups, sandwiches, three signature salads and Bennett’s ‘Chicken & Donut’ and ‘Donut Dog,’ are available Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bennett’s hours are Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.
