Gilgan Co. to host job fair for restaurant staff

Parent company behind Bamboo Shack, Sapodilla seeking job candidates for all areas of restaurant operations 

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Jobseekers in The Bahamas are being put on notice to get their resumes and interviewing skills ready as Gilgan Co. prepares to host a job fair next week.

Gilgan is the company behind restaurant brands so widely successful and popular that they’ve become household names, especially in the nation’s capital.

Gilgan Co. has continued providing the Bahamian people with much-needed jobs over the years.

The organization is the parent company of the iconic Bamboo Shack and its newer rendition, Bamboo Grillhouse, which are fan favorites when it comes to local restaurants in The Bahamas.

It’s also behind Frankie Gone Bananas, another well-known brand beloved by residents and tourists alike.

Additionally, the prestigious Sapodilla, a five-star fine dining restaurant, and the newer Sunset Beach Club are also part of Gilgan’s impressive portfolio.

Gilgan was launched in 1990 with the opening of the first Bamboo Shack restaurant. It has since expanded to several more locations, including in the United States.

Over the years, Gilgan has employed hundreds of employees at Bamboo Shack alone, and that number has only increased alongside the company’s growth.

Now, it’s looking to once again provide dozens of jobs to the Bahamian populace, providing crucial employment in a particularly economically challenging period.
