The creation of more restaurants is leading to, naturally, more food service jobs in Atlanta.

A local restaurant has announced it is opening two new restaurants in the area and is expecting to hire staff for the locations.

This Is It! BBQ and Seafood has two new locations. This Is It! To-Go located at 3620 Camp Creek Parkway Suite 400, Atlanta, Georgia 30331 in the Camp Creek Marketplace next to Comcast, and a new Corporate Headquarters and Conference Center in Fayetteville, Georgia.

The new Corporate Headquarters and Conference Center will house a banquet facility that can accommodate up to 150 guests. It will be available six days a week to service a variety of private functions including wedding receptions, corporate meetings, and other intimate celebrations or events.

Both are works in progress, slated to open in December 2012. The new Camp Creek Marketplace location is projected to employ a total of 12 new staff. Additionally, the new Corporate Headquarters and Conference Center will hire approximately 15 new employees to support company-wide growth.

This Is It! BBQ and Seafood has restaurant locations throughout the Metro Atlanta area including a franchise location in Smyrna, Georgia. Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Fayetteville, Georgia. This Is It! BBQ and Seafood specializes in home-style southern meals.
