About Gecko Hospitality Franchises

Invest in the growing hospitality recruitment market

Hospitality Franchises are needed more than ever. The hospitality businesses need experienced managers to lead them into the future. Between new job creation and high turnover rates, thousands of restaurant, hotel, casino, country club and resort management positions need to be filled, every day.

The need – and the business – of filling these positions with the best talent on the market is growing fast. It can’t be met by traditional in-house means, employee referrals, or advertising. Companies are increasingly turning to outsourced management recruiting and staffing support.

Gecko Hospitality - Back to basics

About the executive search industry

A billion-dollar profession, executive search stands at the top of the staffing-services pyramid. Franchises are charged with identifying and attracting key managers and professionals for openings that range from $25,000 to $100,000+ USD.

High-level restaurant managers are almost always happily employed and must be carefully persuaded to change jobs.

Most of our recruiters enter the profession after developing solid business skills as managers or entrepreneurs. They have strong interpersonal communication skills and the ability to engender trust. We represent the client -and- the job candidate.

Gecko Hospitality - Make that first impression count

Why a Gecko Hospitality franchise?

The U.S. restaurant industry is $426B strong with 11.7 million employees – the largest employer in the country. Hospitality managers account for 1.5 million managerial posts in the U.S. and the industry has posted real growth for the past 11 years.

With continual job creation and high turnover, the industry requires recruiting support to fill the constant demand, especially when it comes to qualified hospitality management talent.

"We began working with Victoria Epstein in 2010 in the Minnesota market. It is a market where additional recruiting support is absolutely needed. Victoria has had great success in the very short time we've worked together. Victoria is incredibly dedicated to listening, understanding not only the specifics of the opening but also our processes and has superb follow through & communication. As Victoria has gotten to know our company culture, she has also asked to proactively bring candidates into our recruiting process to see if a possible fit might exist and we have made a great hire or two in this way.

Victoria also takes the time to build a solid relationship with me as a client. She is sensitive to what is happening in my work world and also wants to get to know me as a person. It has been a pleasure to work with her and hope we can continue to do so for a long time to come."
