Later this year, Pared will establish itself in additional major cities nationwide, with plans to continue expansion to other regions across the U.S. in 2020.
In an industry plagued with a debilitating turnover rate of 82% according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Pared is a crucial staffing tool that bridges the employment gap for both restaurant operators and skilled workers. By providing restaurants with skilled workers on demand, Pared is helping solve chronic staffing issues while also lowering restaurant overhead costs. Pared has also proven to be a game-changer for restaurant workers, providing them with consistent, fulfilling work that improves their quality of life and empowers them to not only enjoy schedule flexibility and higher wages than the industry average, but also increase their skill set and expand their network at thousands of top restaurants.
“We’ve seen great success with the Pared app so far, and are excited to bring our services to the iconic Philadelphia food scene,” said Will Pacio, co-founder and CEO of Pared. “With our database of over 100,000 highly qualified restaurant professionals available on demand to our customers across the country, we are confident that Philly restaurant operators will see a significant reduction in staffing issues and the resulting overhead costs.”
Many of the top restaurants and chefs in the world count on Pared to meet their staffing needs, including more than 30 Michelin-starred restaurants, with marquee names including Thomas Keller Restaurant Group, Jean Georges Restaurants, Altamarea Group and Crafted Hospitality, among others. On the hospitality side, Pared works with leading stadiums, higher education institutions, corporate kitchens, and also provides staff for elite catering companies at premier venues including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Guggenheim.
“We used Pared for our New York team at High Street on Hudson to adjust for fluctuations in volume, unexpected call outs that would have otherwise disrupted service,” said Ellen Yin, co-owner of High Street Hospitality Group. “I am thrilled that Pared is launching in Philadelphia to enable our businesses to have more options to find great talent and fill staffing gaps.”
Pared has separate apps for restaurant operators (Pared app) and experienced professionals (Pared Pros app), both available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Restaurant operators can also visit the Pared website to sign up to use the service.
“We have been using Pared at many of our Bareburger operations in New York, from our restaurants to our commissary kitchens. They’ve really allowed us to flex our labor and manage our operating costs. Pared has done all the hard work of finding great people who can get the job done and done right,” said Jimmy Pelakanos, President and Co-founder of Bareburger. “Whenever we need someone, we can turn to Pared for help. It’s made a huge difference in our plans for growth and expansion and I’m excited we can now use them in Philadelphia.”
