Asian food lovers rejoice: T&T Supermarket is opening its first grocery store in Quebec, the company confirmed Thursday.
While the exact location has not been finalized, the company plans to open a grocery store somewhere on the Island of Montreal in the next 12 to 24 months.
"After receiving many requests over the years from T&T fans who live in Montreal, I'm happy to say we are finally coming," stated Tina Lee, CEO of T&T Supermarkets. "Our goal is always to be at the forefront of Asian food innovation, and I am so excited to introduce our offering to Montreal, a city that has such a vibrant food-loving culture."
With 29 stores in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, T&T is the largest Asian supermarket chain in the country. It offers a wide selection of pan-Asian products, from fresh vegetables and meats to fish balls of all kinds, uniquely textured Asian snacks and freshly baked buns, not to mention ready-to-eat meals.
And if you're looking for a new and exciting job in the Asian supermarket industry, T&T is looking to hire over 300 people to work at the new location. It is already starting to look for department heads, assistant department heads and department supervisors.
Training can be completed at any existing T&T store, the closest one being in Ottawa. In addition, the company is reaching out to local vendors in preparation for the opening.
T&T has its origins in Vancouver, where it was founded by Lee's mother, Cindy Lee, in 1993. Tina Lee represents the second generation of her family to run the company.
If selected, CMOs will get paid $4,000 to post about their mac 'n cheeses on Instagram and convert people to choosing Cheetos over other brands.
Basically, all you have to do is convince people around you to try the cheesy pasta in an original way and you get one heck of a compensation for doing so.
"CMOs might go big and replace everything in their kitchen with Cheetos® new, sexy macs, or they could offer the last person to text them a hot bowl of Cheetos® Mac 'n Cheese delivered to their door," the listing reads.
To apply, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident and over the age of 19.
While no acting experience is necessary, the cheesy company says you must still be "outgoing and comfortable filming yourself for social media."
You'll also have to fill out an application and send in a video explaining your unusual plan to turn people into Cheetos Mac 'n Cheese lovers just like you before November 29.*
If selected, you must be available for a virtual interview on December 2 and a short call on December 10. You will then have to create two posts and two Instagram stories and publish them between December 15 and January 15.
In addition to the $4,000 salary, CMOs will also receive promotional gifts from the brand and the company will provide all the boxes of mac 'n cheese you need to execute your plan.
