Hot off the press in Christchurch
Wednesday October 23, 2013.
The much-hyped Christchurch reopening of fast-food chain Wendy's may be in jeopardy because of struggles to source a key ingredient - staff.
The company's Hornby venture was scheduled to open on November 11. However, the opening date is now in doubt after a recruitment drive has filled only about a quarter of the positions needed.
Wendy's first Christchurch restaurant in Hereford St lasted only three months before the February 2011 earthquake shut the operation down.
Building consent for the Hornby store was issued this year, and in July the company began the process of appointing a contractor to build the restaurant.
Wendy's chief executive Danielle Lendich said finding people to ''flip its burgers'' was proving difficult because of the city's buoyant job market and accommodation shortage.
Lendich said that despite working with the Canterbury Skills & Employment Hub and Work and Income, only about a quarter of the required 60 crew and five managers had been hired.
With training scheduled to begin on Tuesday, it looked likely that it may have to be postponed, affecting the opening date.
Some staff had been re-employed from the Hereford St store, but many had found other employment while the store had been shut.
Most of the managers' positions had been filled internally, and those recruited were now having difficulty finding accommodation.
"There's obviously very little in the way of houses to rent, and the hotels all seem to be fully booked," Lendich said.
"Relocating any additional staff to fill other positions would therefore be problematic."
However, it is understood the company was having difficulty filling positions as it required fulltimers to be available at all hours of operation.
According to its job advertisement on Trade Me, Wendy's was seeking those with ''open availability - that is, can work any hour on any day''.
