Roberts Group of Companies is owned and operated by Austin and Ramona Roberts and they have been in business for 25 years. They operate gas stations, convenience stores, restaurants, food services, and tourism/events businesses. They also farm potatoes and have a potato wash plant in New Annan, which provides year-round work.
“We don’t do it all on our own,” says Ramona Roberts, Owner/Operator/Human Resources. “In some of our businesses, we have wonderful partners.”
Over 100 staff work within the entire group of companies. There are full-time and part-time seasonal and year-round positions. Hiring is on-going year-round. “Jobs that are harder to fill are in the food service industry. Chefs, Cooks, Dishwashers, and Cleaners are always in demand.”
“We have lessened our focus on food services, though we still do several, and have expanded our agricultural and manufacturing side.
“We are currently building a new potato washing facility in Travellers Rest to take advantage of all we learned in the last six years of washing, and to take advantage of new scientific information we can apply to operate more efficiently.
“We have expanded our support services in welding and truck mechanic operations which are challenging positions to fill.
“The West Royalty Irving on University Avenue joined our Big Dog store just over a year ago.
“COVID-19 has changed things but we are grateful to our customer base in all sectors and working hard every day to fulfill their needs.”
