The Hospitality Flood Gates are Opening!

As the owner of Patrice & Associates Hospitality Recruitment, I use my own business as a yardstick measuring the health of the hospitality industry.  In 2020, our clients were being forced to close, job seekers weren't looking for jobs as they were on unemployment - and there were no jobs to be found. As more states gave the green light for restaurants to open, they have been in a frenzy.  Many only got a 24 - 48-hour notice that they could open.  They didn't have the food ordered, they didn't have any prepping options and they didn't have the staff.…

The unprofessional actions of one ruin it for all

image of The unprofessional actions of one ruin it for all

Authored by Chuck Helden, Franchisee The other day I came upon a LinkedIn post, written by a recruiter from another firm within my own industry. This recruiter wrote that her client embarrassed her because of their unresponsiveness to the application of one of her candidates. She told the candidate of this client's unresponsiveness, and that she could not wait to find him a better opportunity with a better company. She then proceeded to “lecture” her client in the post! There are a lot of incredibly good professional recruiters and recruiting firms out there, but there are some that give the industry a…

Author:  Rick Weaver, Franchisee Hire for Culture and Fit It was a chilly morning as I raced to get to a meeting across town. Along the way I stopped for a quick breakfast. When the food came, I said, “You must enjoy getting people a delicious start to their day.” The reply shocked me. “I like it, I just wish the food was healthier”. I immediately thought, “my breakfast isn’t healthy? I thought it was. After all it's low in sodium and fat. What is wrong with it.” Was the problem the food, the wait staff, or something else. Research…

Patrice & Associates Update on COVID and the Hospitality Industry Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top expert on infectious diseases, told Robin Roberts of ABC News in Mid-November “the calvary is coming here. Vaccines are going to have a major positive impact.” Dr Fauci, a trusted top adviser, sees the vaccine  having a significant affect on curbing the pandemic.   This combined with thoughtful mask wearing means that we see an abatement of this pandemic within 4-6 months.  Hopefully at that point, life will return to “normal.” There is no question the hospitality industry has been hit the hardest in the last…

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • testimonial image
    I would like to personally thank Ken for all his help in helping me to find a job. On June 1st I was released from my job of 11 years. I was unsure of what my next steps would be. I haven't been through an interview in years and I felt like I was unprepared. Ken took the time to help me step by step. He first gathered all my personal information and work history. He built a resume from all of that information and articulated my accomplishments in a way I never could have. He sent me tips on what to wear, questions to ask, and called after my interviews to see how it went. He gave me support and encouragement when I was at my absolute lowest. I couldn't have asked for a better recruiter! Thank you again Ken! Thanks, Again, KenGeneral Manager, Logan's Road House, Chattanooga TN

    Tim was nothing but helpful from the start!

    I was originally contacted by Tim as a reference for someone who used to work for me. He must have recognized that I myself was a good fit, because within a few minutes the conversation turned to me applying for the job.  He was always pushing for me. He was there to help with everything, every step of the way, and was in constant communication. He played a massive role in me landing an amazing job with an even better company. I can't stress enough how awesome this guy was. Tim will coach you through the entire process and be your biggest advocate. He has a lifetime of experience and knows exactly what companies are looking for. A+, 10/10, two thumbs up, 5-stars. Thanks for everything Tim! Brock Kinley Tim was nothing but helpful from the start
