Brazilian steakhouse, Tucano’s, hiring

Tucano’s Brazilian Grill is hosting interviews for all of its staff positions today through Wednesday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The Brazilian steakhouse at 3294 Cinema Point in the First and Main Town Center is slated to open this spring.

Tucano’s Brazilian Grill has locations in Provo and Salt Lake, Utah; Albuequerque, N.M.,  and Boise, Idaho.

While the company is based south of Denver, the Colorado Springs restaurant will be the first in the state, said Tucano’s owner Steve Oldham in September when he announced plans to open a Springs location.

“We’ve been looking at Colorado Springs for a long time,” he  said. “It’ll be nice to get a little closer to home.”

He said the Colorado Springs market was appealing because the city has a large population without a similar-style restaurant.

Brazilian steak houses are known for their all-you-can-eat meats. Patrons have an opportunity to try different cuts of beef, pork, poultry and fish in a “keep-it-coming” atmosphere.

Oldham said meal prices will be about $20 at dinner and $14 at lunch Children under 6 eating for free.
