  • Hospitality Recruiters are There for You!

    Back at the end of March my wife and I turned our restaurant over to our daughter and son in-law to run, with the idea we would retire. We took a couple of trips and got somethings done around the house.  By the first of July I knew the retirement life was not for me. I started filling out some applications online and just a couple days later I revived a call from Karl Busch, with Patrice & Associates, he let me know he had a position open in the area. Karl knew all my back ground was in full service restaurants and he ask if this was something I would be interested in, I let him know that I love the restaurant business and doing something different in the business is just what I needed. Karl made the phone calls and got met the interview, he really went to bat for me. After a couple weeks I am now training and really enjoying the job and the people. Karl still checks on me to see how things are going. I don’t think of Karl Busch as a job recruiter but as a friend. Thank you Karl and Patrice & Associates for believing in me, Dave Grant     #1 Hospitality Management Recruitment Agency Hospitality Recruiters are There for You!
