Happy Valley has created 127 jobs at its Gloucester location, 35 percent of them held by residents of the city of Gloucester and another 10 percent from neighboring Essex, Manchester-by-the-Sea, and Rockport.

The Happy Valley Insider Mobile app provides a live menu, access to purchase history, rewards points for medical patients, and a personal Journal to keep track of experiences.


The company has also made a major commitment to giving back with donations to Action Inc.’s Our Place in Gloucester, a sober drop-in program for individuals recovering from substance use disorder; the Gloucester Food Pantry; Gloucester Firefighters Local 762; the Beauhawks Foundation supporting children with rare diseases; and Boston-based, which inspires girls to fulfill their potential through physical self-defense and socio-emotional skill-building.

“We couldn’t be more honored to be joining the beautiful and vibrant community of Gloucester, and we’re excited to grow the strong and positive partnership we’ve already begun with the people of Gloucester and all of Cape Ann,’’ said General Manager John Hugo.
