Patrice & Associates Expands Booming Franchising Initiative With Regional Developer Program

North America's Leading Restaurant Management Recruiting Firm Offers Unrivaled Market Share and Growth Opportunities

July 08, 2014 // // DUNKIRK, Md. – Patrice & Associates, the nation's largest recruiting firm specializing in the restaurant industry, announced the introduction of a Regional Development franchising program that offers significant market share and growth opportunity for future and existing entrepreneurs.

Under the new program, Regional Developers will acquire the rights to develop 25 Patrice & Associates franchises within a specified territory. Developers will also receive a single franchise unit of their own, plus a portion of the new franchise fee and ongoing royalties from franchisees signed within the territory.

"This is a unique opportunity to provide investors with the means to reach their income, lifestyle, wealth and equity goals through a leadership position unlike anything we've had before," said Brian Miller, chief operating officer of Patrice & Associates. "Regional Developers are heads of their own region and responsible for leading and motivating a team of professionals as they build market share within the communities the franchisees and developer serves."

As the restaurant and hospitality sectors continue to grow, Patrice & Associates remains the most equipped staffing agency in the country to connect North America's premier restaurant brands with the industry's promising talent. The firm's Regional Developer and franchise opportunities provide entrepreneurs with a ground-level opportunity to strike while the iron is hot in the rapidly growing restaurant industry.

"We are so thrilled to offer our developer program to investors and current franchisees in the United States. A Canadian developer program will arrive soon, too," said Patrice Rice, the CEO and founder of Patrice & Associates, a published author and recognized job and employment expert. "For us, growing the brand with people who are committed to the Patrice & Associates mission, and we look forward to meeting our newest batch of team members."

The initial Regional Developer investment costs about $200,000, plus fees, compared to the roughly $50,000 investment for a single franchise. Franchise territories are determined based on population, with a single franchise covering areas that occupy about 250,000 people.

Details of this program also arrive on the heels of Patrice & Associates' Canadian growth announcement, which anticipates 50 new franchise units slated to open in Canada in the next five years.

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 35 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.
