Why Hospitality Executive Search & Recruitment?

Going out to eat is part of our culture – whether in Canada or the US.

  • There are over a million restaurants in the US and 81,000 new ones that opened last year.
  • The Canadian restaurant industry increased 4.5% last year and employs over 500,000 people.

People eat out for any and every reason – because they’re happy or sad, because it’s a birthday or anniversary, because it’s lunch time or Saturday night, because it’s happy hour at a sports bar.  THE RECRUITING OPPORTUNITIES ARE ENDLESS

Why Patrice and Associates?

#1 Brand in Hospitality Recruiting: 

No territory restrictions!    You’ll be able to work all of North America.   You’ll have a territory to develop, however, our opportunity is unique among franchise brands, as you’ll help people find jobs and develop client’s nationwide.  Work from anywhere!  Never again sacrifice the important things in life.  Moments you can’t recapture.  Family vacations, caring for loved ones, children’s sports.  No more apologies.

Recession resistant business model – not a Fad:  Hospitality sector is projected to grow exponentially over the next decade, thereby cementing a solid demand even in difficult economic times. People will always eat out – it’s part of our culture.

Low Start- Up Costs.  Our model allows you to start in your home and expand to an office location when you’re ready OR fast track to a larger business with an office, recruiters and clients.   Therefore, allowing you to be cash flow positive sooner.

  • No Lease to Sign – you can hire recruiters who work from their homes nationwide
  • No Employees You Have to Hire – It’s Your Choice
  • Faster to Cash Flow than any other Model
  • Recession Resistant
  • No Inventory or Equipment to Purchase

It’s YOUR Business 

Many franchisors charge a set royalty fee or a marketing/advertising fee every month whether or not you make a dime…for the next 20 years. We don’t believe in that philosophy!   We believe you are a business owner, not an employee with a quota and penalty for minimum performance.  This business can give you whatever you’re looking for at whatever time of life you’re in!

  • No Minimum set Royalty to Pay
  • No set monthly advertising fee to Pay

Want to take the summer off?  You don’t owe us any money.  Need to care for a loved one?  Either work from their home or take time off.  You don’t owe us any money.

We are also unique because Patrice, our Founder and CEO, is still active and involved.  Many other franchise opportunities no longer have the original founder involved in the business.
