Patrice & Associates Parlays Franchising Momentum into Strategic Canadian Growth Initiative

North America's Leading Restaurant Management Recruiting Firm Expands Franchising Opportunity as Demand for Top Industry Talent Grows

June 17, 2014 // // DUNKIRK, Md. – Patrice & Associates, the nation's largest recruiting firm specializing in the restaurant industry, announced today a strategic Canadian franchise growth initiative.

Brian Miller, the newly appointed chief operations officer (COO) of Patrice & Associates and a well-established franchising guru and consultant, leads the company's charge into Canada. Miller's planning includes a five-year, strategic expansion that will result in more than 50 new franchised Patrice & Associates offices in Canada. The large-scale growth strategy projects new franchisees dotting the map from Atlantic Canada to the country's West Coast. This announcement marks the continuation of five years of consistent U.S. franchise growth for Patrice & Associates. Canada is a natural international growth territory for the concept, which has also evolved to include a niche in the grocery sector.

"Just like the restaurant industry we serve, Patrice & Associates is always prepared to evolve and grow, if it means enhancing our ability to connect great brands with the best talent in the restaurant industry," said Patrice Rice, the CEO and founder of Patrice & Associates, a published author and recognized job and employment expert. "The firm's Canadian expansion will benefit our clients tremendously. We can now bring our extensive network of talented job seekers to an exciting new group of restaurant brands. Our proven method of connecting restaurants with the best employees is going to be a great fit in this exciting new market."

In addition to awarding individuals with Patrice & Associates franchise offices throughout the country, the company has launched a Regional Developer program that provides driven business leaders the opportunity to market the staffing franchise to other motivated, small business-oriented people in Canada. Regional Developers earn a unique opportunity to seize their income, lifestyle, wealth and equity goals by acquiring a significant market share in the region they are developing. Regional Developers will lead Patrice & Associates' overall growth by motivating and supporting franchisees during their initial launch phase and on an ongoing basis.

"We are dedicated to forming positive working relationships with our clients, the coveted restaurant brands that are adored by consumers the world over. No one connects restaurants with great management-level staff better than Patrice & Associates, said Miller, who has consulted for Patrice & Associates prior to his new role. "The sky is the limit for Patrice & Associates, Canada's fantastic restaurants, and the promising job seekers who are ready to dive into their dream jobs."

Patrice & Associates is a turnkey franchise opportunity, ideal for go-getters. The firm's recruiters work hard to find the right candidates for their clients and feel inspired to grow the company's client base. The proven business model comes complete with access to all of the existing Patrice & Associates client relationships and its comprehensive database of management candidates.

Rice began her restaurant management recruiting company more than twenty years ago out of her basement. The company has grown fast since those humble beginnings - it is now one of the largest privately held search firms in the country, helping thousands of candidates find new job opportunities and countless restaurant and hospitality clients fill management positions with individuals vetted for excellence. Currently, Patrice & Associates has more than 600 managerial positions to fill. Rice started franchising her restaurant industry recruiting business five years ago in the midst of the Great Recession. It has continued to grow rapidly ever since, into a business with more than 45 regional franchise offices spread across the entire nation.

While some of the franchisees currently operating a Patrice & Associates do have a restaurant or hospitality background, it is by no means necessary for success in the franchise.
