Nation’s Leading Restaurant and Hospitality Recruitment Firm Launches New Franchise Location in New Jersey

Local Entrepreneur to Open Patrice & Associates Office in Long Beach Island

December 22, 2015 // // LONG BEACH ISLAND, N.J. - Patrice & Associates, the nation’s preeminent strategic partner in the restaurant industry, announced today the opening of a franchise location in New Jersey to meet the growing management needs at local restaurants and other related hospitality businesses.

Jillian Robinson, local resident, will run day-to-day operations for Patrice & Associates in Long Beach Island, serving businesses within Ocean County. In this new phase of her career, Robinson plans to leverage her sales and communications background.

“In New Jersey, more and more restaurants are heavily relying on recruiters to find the best talent,” Robinson said. “I am eager to connect these great restaurants with bright personalities and hard workers in the community.”

Patrice Rice, CEO and Founder of Patrice & Associates, began the hospitality management recruiting company more than twenty years ago out of her basement. She recently launched a growth initiative for the company, seeking to expand by opening franchised Patrice & Associate offices. Now, one of the largest privately held search firms in the country, Patrice & Associates fills positions for thousands of U.S. restaurants and guides thousands of management candidates to new job opportunities.

“We are happy to have Jillian join the Patrice & Associates family,” Rice said. “Given her superior communications skills, we know that Jillian is going to make a wonderful fit for our team.”

Patrice & Associates has evolved from a hospitality-staffing agency to a strategic partner for restaurant brands. Restaurant companies today are looking for more than a resume, they are seeking talent that can embody the culture and have a positive impact on the brands’ growth.

The $625 billion hospitality industry employing 12 million people in the United States has proven resistant to the recent forces of the recession. Rice began franchising her hospitality industry recruiting business four years ago in the midst of the Great Recession. It has continued to grow rapidly with more than 45 regional franchise offices spread across the entire nation. Patrice & Associates currently has more than 600 managerial positions to fill.
