It is with pleasure that I recommend the Gecko Hospitality organization. I wanted to say a special ‘thank you’ to Joan Koelbel who helped us with the recruiting efforts during a critical time of expansion process of our restaurants. We spent time discussion the particular qualities and the critical attributes that this person must possess in order to help propel our brand. Immediately, she was able to set up meetings and interviews with qualified candidates. We worked together on the recruiting process and she was timely and very professional. I would highly recommend working with Joan or the Gecko Hospitality organization again!
I just wanted to say thank Tom Bull and his team for helping us fulfill the Market Chef position for Washington, DC. I’m truly appreciative of his support along with the quick response from his team and most importantly identifying the ‘right fit’ candidate for us. We are very excited to get our new Market Chef started in DC.
In today’s competitive labor market, developing relationships with quality vendors is one of the keys to success. Working with ethical, talented individuals outside as well as inside a company is necessary in order for an organization to maximize its potential. At Ryan’s, we are selective in the companies that represent our brand. I’m happy to say that Gecko Hospitality assists us in meeting our management staffing needs. The staff at Gecko continues to earn our trust by accurately portraying Ryan’s to applicants. They are diligent, honest and perceptive in executing our job orders. Most importantly, they present fine quality candidates to us that meet and exceed our hiring criteria. Like Ryan’s, they have built a successful business by treating people right. That is a business strategy that will never go out of style! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding our satisfaction with Gecko Hospitality.

When I joined the Krystal Company in September 2009, Sterling Smith was the first Recruiter that contacted me to establish a partnership. Sterling and I spent time on the phone week after week discussing candidates and their backgrounds so that he could get a best understanding of the Krystal culture and present the candidates that were the ideal fit for our various markets. Due to his dedication, persistence and ability to make the connection between candidate and company, I am very proud of the fact that my first placement with my new company came from Sterling! Any company that decides to partner up with Sterling and Gecko Hospitality is considered lucky in my book; he’s proven to me to be the ideal extension of our recruiting efforts!
In the past two years, Apple Gold has developed a strong recruiting relationship with Gecko Hospitality. They have done an exceptional job helping us successfully hire both Restaurant Managers and Area Directors. Before sending potential candidates to us Gecko does an outstanding job of screening candidates ensuring we can make a good fit and create a beneficial match for both parties. During the time we have worked together the Gecko recruiters have demonstrated strong knowledge of the casual dining industry as well as a comprehensive understanding of our needs. Overall, we immensely value our relationship with Gecko Hospitality and recommend them to other organizations.
Robert, This is a letter of recommendation for Gecko Hospitality. Gecko Hospitality has played a vital role in Houlihan’s success over the years with its support of our management staffing and recruiting. Whether it is through open houses, career fairs, or direct staffing Gecko hospitality has always been there to provide the support that we need. One of the areas that I feel is so important not only in the Hospitality field but in all fields is customer service. The people at Gecko Hospitality are what I like to consider ‘Leaders in our Industry.’ They truly understand what it takes to get the job done, but do it in a professional yet personable manner. Thank-you very much for many years of partnership and success and I look forward to many more years of continual success and friendship.
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.
