June 17, 2014 // Franchising.com // 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."
