Chili's jumped on the mention, releasing a statement on January 9 offering Carey a job, a donation to a charity of his choice, and a $100 Chili's gift card to "get a firsthand taste of Chili's familiar favorites with a twist."
"I'd like to invite you to fulfill your long-held desire by managing one of our Chili's Grill & Bar restaurants for a few hours," said Todd Diener, president of Chili's in an open letter to Carey. "I hope you seriously consider this offer to bring your fun-loving personality to the Chili's family. I'm confident our team members will help fulfill your dream to be 'the boss that everybody liked.'"
PRWeek will definitely follow-up to see if Carey goes through with the offer.
