Historic Homestead Manor Holding Job Fair, May 4

Homestead Manor—one of our new concepts that will include a restaurant, event venue and working farm!is holding a job fair to fill nearly 70 staff positions Monday, May 4 at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Cool Springs.

Available roles include a maitre d’, restaurant managers, chefs, servers, hosts, line cooks, prep cooks, server assistants and dishwashers, in addition to bartenders with extensive craft cocktail or wine experience. Interviews will be hosted at 2001 Meridian Boulevard in Franklin from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The Marshalls say they hope to fill positions for both the restaurant and the special event area through the job fair, and are looking for individuals with a community-oriented heart and a willingness to learn. Those with fine-dining experience are especially encouraged to apply!

“We’re a family-owned business that focuses on treating customers like friends. We’ll be looking for personalities that fit the core of that vision,” says Claire Marshall Crowell, our director of operations for A. Marshall Family Foods Inc., who will be directly involved in the hiring. “Homestead is a new concept for us, and we’re excited to reveal the property to the public.”

If you’re interested, you can download an application at www.homesteadmanor.com. Applicants may bring a completed form to the interview or fill one out on site. A copy of a photo I.D. is requested, and resumes are always welcome.

Homestead’s impressive ca. 1819 antebellum home, which was a ground-zero site for 8,000 Civil War soldiers during the Battle of Thompson’s Station, now serves as the hub for the property. Plans for the Homestead concept include an event barn, a fresh farm-to-table restaurant concept, and educational opportunities involving the on-site orchard, greenhouse and working farm.

Construction is nearly complete on the bar, event barn, and Manor, which will house the eatery. Owner Andy Marshall says the property will open next month.

“As a company, we established early that our focus would be on investing in the community. We’re looking forward to doing that here with Homestead. This is an amazing opportunity for our family to create a hospitality concept unlike anything we’ve done before. We believe this property and its components to be unique to not only to this county, but also to Middle Tennessee,” Andy says.
