New Patrice & Associates Office Puts Hospitality Professionals to Work in North Carolina

Patrice & Associates, the nation’s leading hospitality industry employment search firm with more than 20 years of operations behind it, announced today the recent opening of its office to serve all of North Carolina.

“I am thrilled to be working with local restaurants, hotels and other area hospitality businesses to fill their open management positions and make a positive impact on their operations,” said owner Tom Cash. “As an entrepreneur, it is extremely exciting to be part of the Patrice & Associates family, utilizing the company’s proven business model and hospitality industry experience to help local businesses find top local management talent to deliver the best service possible to their customers.”

With the number of foodservice managers expected to increase 11 percent annually until 2015, Patrice & Associates’ work in the restaurant industry is a prime example of the strength of the local hospitality segment. Several well-known brands such as Cracker Barrel, Tumbleweeds, Tripps/Battleground, Ruth Chris, Ruby Tuesdays and Golden Corral have hired the search firm to find top talent for their management positions, allowing company personnel to focus on operating their stores.

“Unlike other sectors, the sheer volume of the hospitality industry continues to create exciting employment and new business ownership opportunities,” said Cash. “There are tremendous job advancement possibilities and career options available.”

Before opening his Patrice & Associates office, Cash spent 33 years in the pharmaceutical industry in sales and marketing positions.

Cash’s new office in Raleigh is part of the Patrice & Associates national growth plan. Since launching the company’s franchise program less than two years ago, the company has opened more than 30 offices nationwide.

    I would like to formally thank Francisco Chevez for helping me get this great District Manager position. Francisco was very professional from the beginning.

  • Matt Lopez nailed it!

    I am thankful for the service that Matt Lopez provided on behalf of Patrice and Associates in finding me and matching me to an excellent job with an energy company in northern Virginia. Matt Lopez discussed the position and the company and advised me on the hiring process. Matt has the intuition to assess me the job candidate, and the employer regarding my personality and the corporate culture to make the match. Matt found a Company that has all the attributes that I have struggled over the past few years to find. I intend to do an excellent job for the Company that I am joining in October 2022. I plan to achieve my immediate objectives, the company’s goals and show that Patrice and Associated backed the right person for the job.

  • I can't thank Karl Busch enough!

    I recently relocated to South Carolina from New York.  At first I tried the usual big company name job search engines, I even reached out to a couple of recruiters but, Karl Busch at Patrice and Associates was the guy who got it done!  His guidance and advice along the way was invaluable.  I was able to secure an Executive Chef position at a high profile restaurant thanks to him.          

    Thank you!
