Our Approach

Patrice & Associates is the number one restaurant and hospitality recruiting company in North America. We have 112 offices across the country and in Canada. Our clients are some of the nation’s most prominent brands.

Our calling card: We find A-level candidates other recruiting companies say they do — and don’t. We do that the hard way, by calling hundreds of restaurants and hotels every week and talking to people who aren’t on the radar screen – people with good jobs who don’t respond to ads. The reality is, it doesn’t matter how many resumés you have on your desk, the best candidates are the ones who didn’t send their resumes in. So we find them.

The other thing about Patrice & Associates – we work on contingency. If we don’t deliver, you don’t pay us. Every franchise owner has a nationwide network of Patrice & Associate offices to draw on to fill jobs. Each client is assigned a single account manager to ensure consistent delivery.

There are nearly a thousand open jobs and a half a million resumés in our database today. So if you know someone who can benefit from our services, please let us know.
