Founded in 1989, Patrice & Associates is the largest recruiting firm in the country specializing in the Hospitality Industry. We are a staffing partner for our client companies that hire managers from us and we are career coaches helping restaurant managers find jobs. The biggest franchise differentiator is that we have existing contracts with national brands such as The Cheesecake Factory, Applebees, Panera Bread, Chipotle, KFC, Ruby Tuesday, TGIF and over 200 more. Because of our existing contracts, franchisees are in business the day they come to training resulting in cash flow faster than other concepts where they have to find their own clients before they can begin working. The other important factor is that we are NOT affected by the economy. Hospitality industry is second in size only to the Federal Government with over a million restaurants nationwide.
