Why Hospitality Executive Search & Recruitment?

Going out to eat is part of our culture – whether in Canada or the US. There are over a million restaurants in the US and 81,000 new ones that opened last year. The Canadian restaurant industry increased 4.5% last year and employs over 500,000 people.

People eat out for any and every reason – because they’re happy or sad, because it’s a birthday or anniversary, because it’s lunch time or Saturday night, because it’s happy hour at a sports bar. THE RECRUITING OPPORTUNITIES ARE ENDLESS

Hospitality Executive Search and Recruiting a winning combination!

You’ll have a territory to develop, however, our opportunity is unique among franchise brands, as you’ll help people find jobs and develop client’s nationwide. Work from anywhere! Never again sacrifice the important things in life. Moments you can’t recapture. Family vacations, caring for loved ones, children’s sports. No more apologies.

Low Start- Up Costs. Our model allows you to start in your home and expand to an office location when you’re ready OR fast track to a larger business with an office, recruiters and clients. Therefore, allowing you to be cash flow positive sooner.

Many franchisors charge a set royalty fee or a marketing/advertising fee every month whether or not you make a dime…for the next 20 years. We don’t believe in that philosophy! We believe you are a business owner, not an employee with a quota and penalty for minimum performance. This business can give you whatever you’re looking for at whatever time of life you’re in!

– No Minimum set Royalty to Pay
– No set monthly advertising fee to Pay

Want to take the summer off? You don’t owe us any money. Need to care for a loved one? Either work from their home or take time off. You don’t owe us any money.
