Marcell Ausborn is hoping his new Patrice & Associates hospitality recruiting franchise in Hampton will welcome people into a new job.

Ausborn opened the firm at 200 Candice Court. He hopes to help find jobs in the hospitality industry for people in Henry, Butts, Spalding, Lamar, Pike, Fayette and Upson counties.

“What I’m in the process of doing is targeting a lot of the restaurants in Henry County and the surrounding areas,” said Ausborn. “We recruit managers, cooks — you name it — for those entities.”

Patrice & Associates is headquartered in Dunkirk, Md. Ausborn, who has a background in human resources, staffing and recruitment, said his goal is to simplify the hiring process for companies and potential employees.

“Understanding our clients’ needs is crucial to effectively communicate with and hire the right candidates,” he said. “I’ve been a part of the Henry County community for 10 years. There wasn’t a franchise here in Georgia, so that was an opportunity.”

Ausborn said it is well known that people in Henry County, and those who visit the area, love to eat meals at local restaurants.

“The hospitality scene in the surrounding area is bustling, and our businesses dishing out great eats can really use a helping hand to find the right people to fill management positions with talented individuals,” he said. “At the same time, there is a fantastic pool of management-level talent right here in our backyard. We’re providing a bridge to bring hospitality businesses the right people for their open management jobs.”

Ausborn said he plans to host a seminar to let people know about how to secure a hospitality job in the area.

Sarah Prentice, a spokeswoman for Patrice & Associates, said restaurants and other companies in the hospitality realm are continuing to thrive in a struggling economy. She said Ausborn will help people capitalize on that growth locally.

“The hospitality industry is booming and as a result, restaurant companies and other hospitality businesses are struggling to keep up with the growing demand for qualified managerial talent,” said Prentice. “As an expert in the field of recruiting and with more than 20 years of experience in human resources, Marcell has a long track record of successfully acquiring and retaining top industry talent.”

  • I must say at first I was a little skeptical on what Stephanie was doing with my resume but now after seeing the results I am so glad listened instead of reacting. I will definitely continue with this company and I've already started to recommend Stephanie and what she can and is more than willing to do for each individual.

  • During my 20+ years career in hospitality I had the opportunity to work either directly or indirectly with several recruiting firms and individuals. My most recent job search lead me to Bruce Leininger with Patrice and Associates. Bruce is one of those rare individuals who combines needs of the employer with knowledge and skills of the job seeker. He sees both perspectives, analyses where there is common ground between employer’s culture and applicant’s strengths, then delivers a candid assessment to both parties. Bruce was relentless in pursuit of job opportunities and in finding the “right fit” for my career profile. EVERYTHING that Bruce said and promised in his introduction to me was delivered, and even MORE! Most importantly I truly felt that Bruce was genuine, understanding and caring in regards to my specific needs and goals. As far as I am concerned when it comes to recruiters, there is Bruce and then there’s everyone else.
