Mini Burger Trend has Long Term Potential

This is so smart for the chains to start offering.  I have always loved the Sliders at Fridays. Thinking small is the watchword for an increasing number of operators who offer downsized sandwiches and bburgersurgers. They play a variety of roles, ranging from easy-to-eat bar munchie, shareable nosh for groups and affordable meal option for wallet-watching patrons. More and more small sandwiches and sliders are popping up across the restaurant landscape. Boston Market recently launched a line of Market Sliders?? that are touted as a light meal or snack. The sliders, priced at $2.99 for three for a limited time, are…

Successful Work from Home Mom

At Patrice & Associates, we have several women who have combined their business development with being a Mom.  These women are an inspiration and testimony to what can be accomplished when one  puts their mind to it.  Lynda's story. I am proud and thankful to be the mother of two fantastic kids.  I have an 11-year-old daughter, Donna, who just might be the next iCarly with her musical and computer talents. My 13-year-old son, Dominic, is just as creative, but he gravitates to the world of fantasy through computer games and books about dragons.   Dominic is joyful and loving but…

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Darryl Jackson has been amazing during this whole process!

    He has kept in contact with me from the very beginning! He gave the company I interviewed for a good vision of myself and they are talking highly of me! Without Darryl, I would still be jobless! He has called me on several occasions to check in and show me that he is reaching out to the next people he needs to reach out to! I could not have asked for a better supporter to help me in my job search! His business is going to excel if he continues to work this hard with his clients like he did with me and I honestly cannot thank him enough!
    Thanks,
    Josh Adams

  • Matt gave excellent information that helped me put my best foot forward. 

    I had the pleasure of working with Matt Lopez.  We have been on this journey with a few companies. I always felt well represented and excited about the opportunities I was presented. His timely follow up is one of the many attributes that stood out the most.  It is hard to find professionalism at this level.  He gave consistent feedback, and pep talks before my interviews.  It's quite a process when dealing with second and third interviews, and Matt constantly provided great energy and enthusiasm.  He also made sure I was always prepared in having all the ammunition I needed.  Whether footnotes, information about the brand, or providing key examples to respond during the interviews.  With this pandemic, it's been difficult.  Many companies are hesitant with the direction they are moving.  Even with my vast experience, Matt is my most valuable asset.  I have several Colleagues and I would highly recommend his service without a doubt.

    Best,
