ATOKA, Okla. (KTEN) -- Reba's Place in Atoka is getting ready for opening day.

The new restaurant, established by namesake country music star Reba McEntire, hosted its first job fair on Tuesday at the Atoka First Baptist Family Life Center. Interviews are also scheduled for Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Reba's Place is looking to hire around 180 people for the restaurant's opening in the fall.

"It's been great," said restaurant manager Garrett Smith. "We've had a great response. We're really excited. We'd love for more to come out... anybody that's looking for anything in retail -- front of house, back of house, anything like that -- we've got every one of those positions available."

If you miss this week's job fairs, there will be additional opportunities on July 8 and 9.
