Announcing New Franchisee in Denver!

Don’s Approach:

Success in the hospitality business requires talented managers with technical expertise and excellent people skills. My approach starts with understanding your unique business profile, so that I can identify talent with the proven ability to build your business. For client candidates, I begin by identifying their technical and service strengths, as well as their personal goals. Having a deep understanding of both sides allows me to develop the best possible fits.

Next, I save you time. The hospitality business is built on excellent people—but identifying top candidates and vetting them takes time away from core business activities that drive revenue and profit. I draw from an established base of candidates and referrals and can quickly assess the best candidates for your specific operation. And because I already have a working knowledge of these candidates, I can identify those with the personality and communication style that fit your company’s culture. This tailored, individualized approach delivers positive results.

Finally, my ultimate goal is to help you take back control over your work schedule, personal commitments, and relaxation time. Few things are more satisfying than seeing my clients—whether they are businesses or candidates—find the right match so that they can grow and flourish.

About Don

Don grew up in Colorado farm and ranch country, where trust, loyalty, and helping neighbors were essential qualities instilled in him from childhood. As a tight-knit community, these values allowed him to thrive even during hard times.

They also were critical for success in Don’s next role in construction, where the ability to work with company management, fellow crew members, public agencies, and other companies’ crews and managers meant getting the job done on time and on budget. An opportunity for Don to launch his own business then led him to a 25-year career in insurance, where he built lifelong relationships—and a profitable business—on proven results and trust.

Hard work is great and Don’s love of life too—hunting, gardening, and breeding and training yellow Labs for hunting. He is an avid foodie, cooking what he grows and following restaurant trends as a consumer. The highlight of his year is when his grandson visits and Don enjoys watching that little city boy romp on the farm with the dogs.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Dear seekers, I would like to tell you about the amazing experience I had working with Scott Jacobson of Patrice and Associates.  In my twenty plus years working as an executive chef I have worked with many career advancement and placement specialists, but none who took the time and directed care that Scott provided me.  His primary goal was to understand exactly what I was looking for and to tirelessly work towards that end.   He focused on my objectives and opened many doors for me.  He gave me invaluable insights into the positions I was considering and guided me as a friend and confidant would.  He understood my strengths and presented me in my most favorable light.  Through his research and diligence he assembled the most pertinent references for me, highlighted my experiences and career achievements.   He found me the exact job that I was looking for.  He was instrumental in negotiating my contract and made sure I was satisfied with every aspect of that contract.  His work did not end there.  Scott has contacted me at various stages of my employment just to check in, and most importantly, to see how I was doing.   Thank you kindly Scott for going above and beyond your duties.  It was a pleasure getting to know you.  Any of you fortunate enough to work with Scott will quickly find all of this to be evident. Sincerely, Chef Jonathan Pflueger  Scott found me the exact job that I was looking for.

  • 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
