Colton's prepares to reopen, hiring workers

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - More than a year after fire destroyed the business, Colton's Steak House and Grill in Jonesboro is preparing to reopen.

And they're hiring.

On Dec. 17, 2014, fire destroyed the restaurant, leaving 50 people unemployed.

By the following March, the company announced plans to rebuild.

It had been their hope to reopen by August. Construction, however, did not begin until November.

Now the work is done and the restaurant is set to reopen on Monday, April 18, and is in need of experienced servers.

To apply, call (870) 802-4000 or go by the restaurant, located at 2309 E. Parker Road in Jonesboro.
