— Golden State Foods, an exclusive distributor for McDonald's restaurants, will hold a job fair Saturday to help fill about 55 openings in a new distribution center.

The distribution center in Garner, which is scheduled to open this summer, will create about 225 jobs and serve 532 McDonald's restaurants. Staff who have relocated from other distribution centers and people hired through previous job fairs have filled all but about 55 of the positions.

The company is hiring drivers with Class A commercial driver's licenses, warehouse personnel and administrative staff.

The job fair will be 9 a.m. until noon Saturday in the Student Services Building at Wake Technical Community College, 9101 Fayetteville Road in Raleigh.
