I’ve had the pleasure of working with Gecko Hospitality on several job searches as well as a candidate.  Gecko  demonstrated the highest degree of integrity, kindness, skill, insight, and perseverance. The Gecko Team is friendly and professional keeps the interest of its clients at heart.  I highly recommend Gecko if you are looking for top quality talent or seeking career development.

I wanted to write a quick thank you for all of your hard work in presenting us with magnificent candidates. As you know, Gecko Hospitality is a new partner with Hard Rock but we are already seeing great results in the candidates you are providing us. Your communication and screening of candidates to match our needs are working. Keep up all of the great work.

Since 2014 I have had the pleasure of working with Gecko Hospitality. At the time our collaboration began, Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop maintained 4 existing establishments in the Los Angeles and Orange County Markets. With expansive growth on the horizon, Greenleaf partnered with Gecko to recruit key candidates to build our restaurant leadership team. Over the years, Gecko has placed General Managers, Managers, and Chefs within the Greenleaf Organization, helping to support our growth to 9 locations. Each time we were presented with talented candidates who matched our specific criteria and needs. Gecko’s personalized services seek to know and understand your business to ensure that all candidates presented will be a true fit within the organization. Please accept this letter and my personal and professional endorsement of Gecko Hospitality and the services they provide.

I just wanted to say thanks to you and your staff for your strong level of commitment and your willingness to work with Bakers Square in resolving our management openings. For the past three years you have provided our Company with management candidates who are experienced in the restaurant industry and who display a high level of professionalism. My regional managers have commented on the quality of your management referrals and they have collectivity chosen Gecko as their agency of choice for identifying and hiring the best management candidates. Again, thanks for your help and I look forward to many more years of working together.

Gecko Hospitality has worked with us at Yard House for 5 years. In that time we have used them in all of our markets. Gecko has shown great ability in understanding the type of candidate we look for and their candidates are always prepared for our process. They have also shown great flexibility and determination in finding “diamonds in the rough”. Its their performance on that level that gives us confidence in using Gecko wherever we may need Managers.

I want to thank you for all of your assistance this year with attracting high quality talent for our unique concept. I especially appreciate your recruiting efforts in tough markets. You are first on my list to call regarding new openings. Gecko Hospitality is one of the very few agencies I work with to place managers at GameWorks. Your firm is a true asset. You and your team have very high standards and integrity. I look forward to working with you and your team in the future.

Gecko Hospitality helped me fill a unique position in a fraction of the time it has previously taken. Chris used his extensive resources and knowledge of the hospitality industry to provide us with multiple, qualified applicants. Gecko saved me the time and frustration I usually encounter with the hiring process and filled the position within weeks.  I will definitely use them again.
