Patrice & Associates’ Elk Grove Office Achieves National Recognition

The Nation’s Leading Restaurant and Hospitality Industry Staffing Company Presents Local Entrepreneur with its Prestigious “Franchisee of the Year” Award

 

Helen Nourai, president and owner of Patrice & Associates’ Elk Grove office, claimed top honors as “Franchisee of the Year” at the company’s recent annual convention and awards ceremony in Baltimore, Maryland.

Patrice & Associates is the nation’s largest recruiting firm that specializes in restaurants and hospitality, utilizing a franchise model to find valuable managerial talent for its clients. Its annual convention brings together home office leadership and franchise partners from across the nation for three days of training, information-sharing and recognition of excellence.

“Helen has had an incredible 2015, and we see that continuing for her in the years ahead,” said Patrice Rice, founder and CEO of Patrice & Associates. “Her strengths go beyond business; as a friend, colleague, and mentor, she is one person we can all look up to. We look forward to supporting Helen as she continues growing her business throughout Elk Grove and surrounding communities.”

Themed “Choose Success,” the convention celebrated several key accomplishments and inspired all attendees – franchisees, local market team members and corporate leadership – to continue to aim high and think big for their clients. The three days included extensive sales and marketing training, educational seminars, and opportunities to share best practices.

The awards dinner proved to be the highlight of the gathering, as Patrice & Associates’ leadership team handed out honors to top performing franchise partners and their team members in attendance for placements, client retention and best practices over the past 12 months.

The coveted “Franchise of the Year” award is given to the franchisee who exemplifies the Patrice & Associates brand experience. The award recipient supports fellow franchisees, demonstrates the brand’s core values in daily actions, operates a successful business, participates and supports corporate initiatives, maintains a positive attitude and volunteers their time to speak with prospective Patrice & Associates franchisees. Given that Helen Nourai, by all accounts, is a well-rounded ambassador of the brand, she was a natural choice for the recognition.

“I am honored to be awarded such a prestigious recognition,” said Nourai, who joined the Patrice & Associates system three years ago. “This award is truly a testament to the care and professionalism our office takes while helping our clients find the best talent for their brands. I am excited to celebrate this accomplishment with my family, friends and community.”

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Thanks Again!

    Bartol starts on Wednesday! Thanks for again turning over all the rocks for us. - FH Client  Thanks Again!
  • Amy is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does.

    Amy contacted me in a time where I was unhappy where I was but wasn’t doing anything to change it. She was very informative and if she didn’t have the information at hand, she got it. She revamped an old resume making it more about achievements than responsibilities. She coached me on interview tactics before multiple interviews and was there to talk about them afterwards. Every conversation we had felt more like a friendship than business. She is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does. She also helped boost my confidence through the entire interview progress. Whatever she is doing, she must be doing it right because I got the job! Thanks Amy for a life changing experience.
    Sincerely,
    Shawn Ware

  • I would 100% recommend Ross

    I cannot begin to thank Ross and Karen enough! without the two of them I wouldn't have even known about the position! The interview process was quick, easy and simple. After only a short week I was in a position I knew I was going to love forever and it was all thanks to them! Ross has been so good about following up with me even after being hired, asking how my experience has been, what hours I'm working etc. and to top it all off Ross even sent me a gift card thanking me for working with him. I would 100% recommend Ross to anyone looking for a career in the industry!
    Cheers,
