Meatball Obsession!

Who doesn't love meatballs?  What a great concept - I'm seeing one on every corner in the near future.  Below is the scoop on the company. At Daniel Mancini’s walk-up window in Manhattan, the meatball bypasses its traditional role as pasta accessory and takes a shot at full-fledged stardom. Since opening Meatball Obsession last April, Mancini’s 225-square-foot shop has dazzled thousands with artisan-made meatballs served in a cup (yes, a cup).

Tasti D-Lite is on the move!

Since the late ’80s, New York City has had a secret: a sweet, creamy, frozen dairy dessert that won’t mess up a model’s diet, or anyone else’s for that matter.

And international dessert lovers are trying Tasti D-Lite these days, too, as the concept has spread to Mexico and Dubai. “Our goal is to open 50 more domestically and 14 internationally in 2011,” says Tasti D-Lite…

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career.

    Sherri Balzer is an excellent job recruiter. I had been working with her for more than 3 months where I had multiple job interviews with different companies. She is always very detailed, caring, patient, and most of all very professional. I turned down multiple job offers because they were not a good fit for me and Sherri understood my reasons. Instead of losing hope in me she kept working hard looking for other companies that suited my skill set and knowledge. We found the perfect company and I got the best job offer available. I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career. Respectfully,

    Andrew Figueroa

  • Working with Jillian and Patrice & Associates Hospitality Recruitment was an amazing experience.  First of all, the work Jillian did on my resume before presenting me to the client was outstanding.  I really feel that it presented me in the best light for the client (and it worked because I got the job!).  I’ve worked with a lot of recruiting firms before and the level of service provided by Jillian was far and above the rest of the industry.  Jillian was always available to talk any time of the day and really made me feel like she wasn’t just concerned with placing a candidate - she also cared about my happiness and well-being throughout the process.
