New Patrice & Associates Partnership with One Management Solutions Creates One-Stop Shop for Restaurant Recruiting, Consulting

Restaurant Owners and Managers Now Have a Unified Resource for Development Consulting and Staff Recruiting

March 20, 2014 // // DUNKIRK, Md. - Patrice & Associates, the nation’s preeminent recruiting partner in the restaurant industry, announced today its new partnership with One Management Solutions, a proven leader in the field of new business consulting, brand building and cost management.

Through the two companies’ work together, Patrice & Associates will take responsibility for the recruiting services One Management Solutions offers its clients. Likewise, as Patrice & Associates’ clients request additional restaurant industry support, One Management Solutions will be called to duty.

Barry Burns, CEO of One Management Solutions, has more than 20 years of business experience with some of the world’s most recognized brands and Fortune 100 companies.

"The team at One Management is excited to be strategically aligned with Patrice & Associates for its recruiting needs. This alliance will further the mission of One Management to be the one call solution for its clients," Burns said. "The joint efforts of One Management Solutions and Patrice & Associates will enhance our ability to provide a seamless solution to support our many clients."

Patrice Rice, President 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 & Associates offices. Now one of the largest privately held search firms in the country, Patrice & Associates fills positions for thousands of U.S. restaurants (currently filling more than 600 positions) and guides thousands of management candidates to new job opportunities.

"2014 has already been a great year for Patrice & Associates, and we’re just getting started," Rice said. "We are thrilled to join forces with One Management, and to offer new and existing clients the most comprehensive recruiting and consulting services available in the restaurant industry."

The Patrice & Associates and One Management Solutions relationship has allowed both firms to solidify their role as a strategic partner to restaurants who seek help with staffing or new business development. 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 40 regional franchise offices spread across the entire nation. Patrice & Associates currently has more than 600 managerial positions to fill.
