The new Wegmans Food Market in West Cary is now hiring for full-time positions including customer service, chefs, line cooks, hourly entry-level management positions and more.

The store is located on Davis Drive and Airport Boulevard and is expected to open this summer. Wegmans plans to employ approximately 450 people at the West Cary store. Approximately 180 of those jobs will be full-time positions. Hiring for part-time positions will begin in late February.

Applications are accepted online at or you can call 984-960-5580 for more information. Interviews are conducted by appointment only and applications are not accepted at the store construction site.

“Our company is known for being one of the best places to work because we offer opportunities for advancement, flexible scheduling, and competitive pay and benefits packages,” said West Cary Store Manager Katie Duchnowski. Starting out as a part time cashier, Duchnowski has spent the last 19 years working in a variety of positions that have set her up to succeed in her current role. “At Wegmans, we work as a family to accomplish our goals.”

The 103,000 square-foot West Cary location will include the company’s signature European open-air market look and feel and will include The Burger Bar, a family-friendly, casual restaurant counter that serves burgers, sandwiches, sides, and beer and wine by the glass.

“We are committed to hiring applicants who have a passion for food and are eager to make a difference for our customers and the community,” said Duchnowski. “The ideal candidate is someone who shares our core values of respect, caring and high standards. If you match these criteria, the skill set to do any position in the store can be taught.”

Beginning in 1916, the Rochester-based company has grown to 101 stores in seven states across the east coast. Wegmans is set to open three locations in 2020: Harrison, New York; West Cary, North Carolina; and Tysons Corner, Virginia.

Additional stores are planned for Cary, Chapel Hill, Holly Springs and Wake Forest. See more details on the Wegmans website.
