McDonald's accepting applications for new facility, looking to hire 60

While he didn't give an exact time line, supervisor Kyle Cano said the progress of the new McDonald's is moving forward and will be open in the not-too-distant future. This month, applications were opened for the 60 staff and management positions that will be created.

"We have people monitoring our website and setting up interviews," Cano said.

The new McDonald's restaurant will be the second of its kind in the world. All the equipment going into it will be new and the design calls for a two-lane drive through.

The owner of the new McDonald's is Tom Locke from the Canton area. Cano said Locke has been an owner-operator since 2000 and already has 25 McDonald's restaurants, most around the Canton-Akron area. He purchased the Canfield location in March of 2018 and was making plans to renovate it.

"Obviously the fire pushed up the time line," Cano said regarding the fire that closed the Canfield location last year. "It was a blessing in disguise."

With progress moving along, the hiring process is underway for both full and part time people. Cano said for young people (ages 15 and up) McDonald's has some great benefits. Once a staff member gets past the first 90 days, they become eligible for a $2,500 scholarship to assist with college costs. A manager can get a $3,000 scholarship. Couple that with McDonald's flexible schedule, paid time off after 90 days, and it works out perfect for most young people attending school.

Cano added that Locke is the type of owner who believes in promoting within. He said if a person gets hired and wants to work their way up in the company, they would have a good chance.

"I started 16 years ago in Canal Fulton as a line cook," he said. "I move to general manager of Hartville then for the past five years have served as a supervisor. This is typical of moving up from within."
