Help wanted around the neighborhood

March 25th, 2011 by master

Although COA Mexican Eatery & Tequileria doesn’t plan to open until mid-May, the new Maple Leaf restaurant at 7919 Roosevelt Way N.E. posted an ad via Twitter announcing that it’s already hiring:

“Tell us a little about yourself and your previous experience in the field. Share with us an experience you’ve really enjoyed with tequila.”

And COA isn’t the only new area business that’s hiring. The new Sally Beauty Supply, 837 Northeast Northgate Way, also has a sign posted in its window looking for help.

Most of the boxes are unpacked and it looks like the store is set to open Monday, March 28. Ready to work that soon? Applications are available online and can be submitted at the Lynnwood location, 19410 Highway 99, Suite C. For more information, call 425-776-4237.

If you’re more interested in being on COA’s wait staff or a “mixologist,” email

Know of any other companies hiring in the neighborhood?
