The restaurant, which will be in the retail center in front of Lowe’s near 29th and Maize, will open Feb. 15.
The restaurant will begin hiring at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday at the Courtyard by Marriott in Old Town.
Franchisee Jeff Miller says he plans on hiring 40 to 50 people. Starting wages are $7.75, but employees have an opportunity for potentially substantial weekly bonuses.
Five Guys hires a third party to visit its restaurants twice weekly. Employees working that shift have an opportunity to share about $1,300 a week if they perform well.
In the fourth quarter of last year, Five Guys paid almost $3.5 million in bonuses to its hourly workers at 500 restaurants.
“That’s a lot of money,” Miller says.
He’s now negotiating for space on the east side as well.
“We would love to have a store open by Aug. 1, and if we can beat that date, we’re definitely going to try.”
