When you’re looking for a chill place to work, then somewhere that sells ices, cones, shakes, and other frozen treats may be a good place to check out. But if you have a record, then you may want to know if Rita’s hires felons.
Rita’s is a chain that sells a wide range of cold treats. They have over 500 locations in 31 states, mostly across the Mid-Atlantic. Sometimes you even get freebies from the restaurant, which is always a good thing to take advantage of! Jobs in the food-service industry are always prime candidates for the justice-involved because they have minimal requirements.
Looking for a job can be a drag, and this is doubly true if you have a criminal record. That’s why Relaunch Pad has contacted over 1,000 companies across the US, including Rita’s, to ask them about their hiring policy for former felons. We also search the internet about each company, including postings from current and past employees, to give you the best and most up-to-date answers to your questions. We want you to confidently put your best foot forward when applying for work.
That’s a lot of work and trouble to go to. So, why do we do it? Because many of our team members are former felons or people who’ve worked with former offenders in reentry programs. We are passionate about helping former felons succeed in life after prison and beyond.
