OSOYOOS - Boston Pizza is making its way to the South Okanagan.

Company spokesperson Jean Whitaker says the Osoyoos franchise has been awarded to Jason and Amy Bartschs, longtime residents and local Osoyoos business people.

The company plans to open a full service restaurant outlet with sports bar and dining room in a customized space at the Watermark Beach Resort and Conference Centre with an opening date slated for mid-November.

Work on the restaurant has begun by local contractor Carl Buckendahl.

Whitaker says a hiring fair will take place as the opening date approaches. She says prospective employees should consult the company’s website and the Osoyoos Boston Pizza Facebook page in the coming weeks for more information, adding the restaurant is hiring for all positions.

Alternatively, anyone interested in a position can also contact Mike Campol.
