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

Local Entrepreneur to Open Patrice & Associates Office in Northern Kentucky

February 23, 2016 // Franchising.com // Covington, Ky. - Patrice & Associates, the nation’s preeminent strategic partner in the restaurant industry, announced today the opening of its first franchise in Kentucky to meet the growing management needs at local restaurants and other related hospitality businesses.

Bill Bunch, local resident, will run day-to-day operations for Patrice & Associates in Northern Kentucky. In this new phase of his career, Bunch plans to leverage his professional background, which includes more than 20 years of experience in leading brand strategies, managing advertising and publications plans, and successfully driving sales within companies such as The Patron Spirits Company and Seagrams Americas. 

“In Northern Kentucky, more and more restaurants are heavily relying on recruiters to find the best talent,” Bunch 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 Bill join the Patrice & Associates family,” Rice said. “With his people-oriented background and years of experience managing the best teams, Bill is a perfect 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 50 regional franchise offices spread across the entire nation. Patrice & Associates currently has more than 600 managerial positions to fill.
