According to, Arooga's Grille House & Sports Bar will open their very first location to Mercer County this summer. Arooga's only has three other locations in New Jersey and will be opening one in Ewing. The Arooga's location will be located at where Landmark used to be at 400 Main Blvd. Campus Town inside The College of New Jersey. The location at The College of New Jersey will actually be the biggest location in New Jersey and will offer over 100 jobs. I think that would be perfect for college students looking to earn some income. The plans are underway and the new location is expected to open this summer.

I worked in the restaurant industry for many years. I worked there before I started working at PST and even did some part time serving while I was employed at PST too. It was a profession that I adored. It had it's good days and bad days, but I met a lot of wonderful people while working as a server and made life long friendships and learned lifelong lessons. One of my former managers opened his own Arooga's years ago in North Plainfield. It was the first one that the area had seen and people were very excited about it. I am not sure if he still owns it, but I know it's still open. Looking at their social media pages, the food looks really good and I would actually love to try it once this new one opens up this summer.

Restaurants Hiring in Mercer County

Unemployment rates have gone down for the first time since the pandemic, but there are still a lot of people looking for jobs. As more and more people get vaccinated and state restrictions are being lifted, people are going out more, especially to restaurants. My family and I did some outdoor dining a few weeks ago on a nice night and the restaurant was slammed. I feel like they were not prepared for the rush that came in. I see signs on so many windows that say "Help Wanted" or "Now Hiring" and I wanted to highlight a few of those restaurants if you or anyone you know if looking for a job.
