Among the Butler County businesses now hiring is Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, which is scheduled to open Aug. 22 at Liberty Center.
The modern casual restaurant expects to hire nearly 200 new staff members for its new location, 7490 Bales St., Liberty Twp., which will be its second in the Greater Cincinnati area and 24th nationwide.
Cooper’s Hawk will include four components under one roof: an upscale casual dining restaurant, full-service bar, private barrel-aging room, and Napa-style tasting room with retail store.
Restaurant officials said they are looking to hire “fresh, talented team members with a passion for food, wine, and hospitality.”
Both full-time and part-time positions are available for its kitchen and front-of-house, including line cooks, prep cooks, dishwashers, server’s assistants, tasting room attendants, servers, hosts, and bartenders.
In conjunction with the opening, Cooper’s Hawk will host a hiring fair from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday in a temporary hiring office just outside of the restaurant’s Liberty Center location.

Founded in Orland Park, Ill., in 2005, Cooper’s Hawk now has 24 locations throughout Illinois, Florida, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, and Wisconsin, with one additional restaurant slated for construction through the end of 2016.
Other Ohio locations include Cincinnati (8080 Montgomery Road) and Columbus (4230 The Strand) inside Easton Town Center.
It has earned “Breakout Brand” and “Hot Concept” accolades by Nation’s Restaurant News.
