New Patrice & Associates Office in Omaha to Give Local Restaurant Scene a Boost

Demand from Local Eateries Gives Rise to Management Support Business in Eastern Nebraska

October 24, 2014 // Franchising.com // Omaha, Neb. - Patrice & Associates, the nation's preeminent strategic partner in the restaurant industry, announced the opening of its second franchise in Nebraska to meet the growing management needs at local restaurants and other related hospitality businesses.

Local resident Steve Oppliger, a corporate training and multi-unit manager for an international fast casual brand, is turning his sights toward hospitality, as he runs day-to-day operations for Patrice & Associates in eastern Nebraska. Oppliger will serve businesses around Omaha, Blair, Fremont, Gretna and Plattsmouth.

"Over the years I have worked in many of the roles that local restaurant and hospitality brands seek to fill, and job candidates seek to find. I can relate to the experiences and demands on both sides of the bargaining table," Oppliger said. "People are hungry for great professional experience, and businesses are always excited about fresh industry talent. Frankly, Patrice & Associates is the best staffing firm to connect qualified job seekers with their next opportunity.

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.

"Steve is a welcome addition to the Patrice & Associates team," Rice said. "His experience in management and operational experience is a recipe for success in our field. Recruiters such as Steve are exceptional at their job, as they provide a caring, thorough approach when connecting restaurants with new employees."

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 40 regional franchise offices spread across the entire nation. Patrice & Associates currently has more than 600 managerial positions to fill.
