New Orland Park Store to Hold Job Fair
Posted on 03/23/2012

Berkot's Super Foods announced the opening of its Orland Park store last fall. The company opened its Mokena store in 1990 and now has thirteen locations, with the newest under construction in the former Green Food & Produce at 11333 West 159th Street, in the Wolf Crossing Plaza at 159th Street and Wolf Road in Orland Park.

"We were very happy to hear that Berkot's had chosen Orland Park as the location of their newest store," said Mayor Dan McLaughlin. "The store at 159th and Wolf Road will be a great addition for the area, being right next door to the village's Sportsplex. It will be very convenient for everyone," the mayor added.

Berkot's will hold its Orland Park Job Fair on Saturday, March 31 from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon at a store front in the same plaza as Orland Park store, 11267 West 159th Street.

Prospective employees are invited to download and complete employment applications from the company's website at www.berkotfoods.com.

"We'll be interviewing people during the job fair," said Jeff Jackson of Berkot's. Applicants must be of legal age to work and the company expects to hire for all positions at its Orland Park store, looking for part-time and full-time employees.

"The village is happy to welcome Berkot's to Orland Park and we're excited with the number of jobs the Orland Park store will offer," said Trustee Kathy Fenton, chair of the village's Development Services Committee.

Along with the Mokena store, Berkot's has stores in Braidwood, Coal City, Dwight, Lockport, Manhattan, Manteno, Momence, New Lenox, Peotone, South Wilmington and Wilmington.

"Orland Park is Berkot's lucky number thirteen," McLaughlin said smiling, adding, "We're glad they're here and we look forward to their opening."

Additional information about the company and the March 31 job fair is available on the company's website or by calling the New Lenox store at 815/463-5046.
