Spring Training Wrap UP

The spring training session is wrapping up for Patrice & Associates. We are excited to bring on four new franchises from various backgrounds. Each franchisee brings their own spin to the industry and leaves training with the tools and knowledge to begin working right away.

Training is two weeks long and virtual. It is an immersive experience consisting of classroom training, virtual break out sessions, recruiting and account development. You heard that right. Our franchisees begin cash flow generating activities during training. We provide the clients and give them a database of candidates. In addition to recruiting, we work on a local account development strategy to assist our franchisees in finding their own clients soon after leaving class.

Let’s get to know our new franchises. Nick and Leah Whited come to us from the Cleveland, Ohio area. Nick came to us with a strong HR background. Before coming to us, he was running his own HR Consulting firm and he saw Patrice & Associates as a great compliment to his business. His wife, Leah, will be assisting with the business and joined him in training. They are both “people” people and look forward to helping other through their Patrice & Associates business.


Greg Read from Wichita, Kansas, comes to us with a strong Food & Beverage background in the entertainment industry. He saw Patrice & Associates as a great opportunity to leverage his background into a successful entrepreneurial venture. He has many connections that he can tap into for account development. Greg liked the flexibility that the business provided. He will keep his full time job to start and slowly transition into Patrice & Associates full time.


Miles Gordon comes to us from Manhattan, NY. Miles is a true entrepreneur having successfully opened and built several different retail businesses. Miles liked the simplicity of our model as well as the ability to scale. He is looking forward to partnering with our other NY based franchisees on placements.


Finally, with have Meenaski Madaan. Meena came to us with a strong I.T. background. She was looking for a business that she could work with her family. Her husband will be helping out in the background and her sister will be taking an active role in the recruiting process with Meena. Meena was excited to find a business where she could work home and still have time for family.

Duke Witte absolutely was amazing! 

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to Duke Witte for his assistance in finding me a new job in the hospitality industry. I was disgruntled with my previous job, and I was feeling very discouraged about my prospects. I had been working in the restaurant industry for many years, and I had a lot of experience and skills, but I was having a hard time finding a better opportunity.

I was contacted via LinkedIn by Duke, and thank goodness I was.  Mr. Witte was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. He took the time to understand my skills and experience, and worked tirelessly to find me a job that was a good fit.

Duke was also very honest and upfront with me about the job market. He didn't sugarcoat things, but also didn't give up on me. He kept me motivated and encouraged, and never gave up on finding me a job that I would love.

I am so grateful to Duke Witte and his team for their help. I am now happily employed, and I am so happy that I was able to find a job that I love. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a job in the restaurant industry. He is a true professional, and is dedicated to helping his clients find the perfect job!

Thank you again for everything!

Working with Chris Bovio made job searching so much easier! 

Not only was he available and involved in my search, but also knowledgeable regarding the position. Chris used his industry experience and recruiting network to find the best position for me and my skill set. My only regret is that my new job is so perfect for me that I won’t need to use Chris or Patrice & Associates later.

Bryan Curtis was fantastic to work with!

Bryan was very on top of things throughout my recruiting process to the engineering firm I accepted my position with.  I responded to his LinkedIn posting and heard back from him within 24 hours. He continually spoke with me throughout the process checking in regularly and answering all my questions. Bryan was instrumental in helping me find a great job.



Frank Rondeau was a really big help! 

When it came to helping me find my new job, he knocked it out of the park!  He was very honest and thorough throughout the entire process. We had multiple conversations along the way and he always checked in after interviews. Frank was amazing to work with, and I'm super excited to start my new journey thanks to him.       

Many Thanks,
