DQ, Subway Expected to Open in July

July 2012, CUJ

MISSION – Subway and Dairy Queen stores are expected to open in mid- to late-July, according to Stephanie Seamans, an economic planner for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

Both facilities may still be hiring for their stores and interested individuals should continue to apply, she said.

Subway applications are available at Nixyaawii Governance Center or online at mysubwaycareer.com. Those interested in a job at Dairy Queen should apply at the store in Pendleton.

Both companies conducted hiring events on the Umatilla Indian Reservation in May and have been training employees at their Pendleton locations to move to their new locations at the Coyote Retail Center.

Subway and Dairy Queen will lease opposite sides of a retail center owned by Perennial Investments, which is leasing the Coyote Business Park property from the Confederated Tribes. Subway announced its intentions to locate on the Reservation in January and Dairy Queen followed in February. The two restaurants will have drive-thru service. The announcement of a third business between Subway and Dairy Queen has not yet been announced.

Subway is expected to employ around 10 while DQ owners have said 20-30 full- and part-time jobs will be filled.
