ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The wait is almost over. Wegmans plans to reopen its authentic Italian restaurant, Amore, in December. Located in Wegmans’ East Avenue store, the restaurant is now hiring for more than 20 positions, with training slated to start in late October.
“We are very excited to reintroduce Amore to our guests,” says Wegmans Restaurant Operations Manager Mauricio Valdivia. “We spent the last year and a half experimenting with new recipes and reinventing the menu to give our customers a new taste of Amore.”
At Amore, Chef Pasquale Sorrentino, a native from Torre del Greco, Napoli, leads a team of Wegmans’ chefs to prepare fresh, signature, contemporary, Italian entrees in the restaurant’s open kitchen, located in the center of the restaurant. The menu will feature a variety of new dishes, along with Amore staples, as the team continues its commitment to source local, organic ingredients from nearby family farms, and combine them with specialty ingredients imported directly from Italy for an authentic flare.
The Amore team is looking to hire both part-time and full-time positions, including line cooks, servers, bartenders, and host/hostesses. Wegmans offers an array of benefits to both full-time and part-time employees. In addition to flexible scheduling, competitive pay and benefits, and potential sign on bonuses, Wegmans employees have many opportunities for career development and growth.
