Helping businesses overcome staffing pains is the reason we exist.

At Qwick, we are doubling down on our commitment to help businesses stand stronger than ever and proud to announce the launch of our Business Recovery Rate, reducing all fees by 50% and becoming the most cost-efficient temporary staffing solution that exists. The reduced rate applies for all shifts posted before June 30th and will cover any dates through the end of 2020

Why now? Because our industry needs us.

This COVID-19 pandemic has ruthlessly smashed its fist down on every category of the hospitality world. The Restaurant industry is estimated to reach a total loss of $80b in sales and will have to re-open under heavy restrictions. Hotel occupancy in the United States has decreased by 59% and caterers have missed out on serving 83 million attendees of canceled events.

As the hospitality industry starts to make its comeback and businesses begin to reopen, one of their biggest pain points will be regaining the staff needed to operate. Their priority will be to rehire original staff members that were let go, but that could be a very difficult and slow process, as those individuals may have found new employment or choose to remain on the boosted unemployment program

Our CEO, Jamie Baxter, aims to be a leader in the comeback of hospitality and believes the Business Recovery Rate is the first step in doing so. “Our business partners are struggling financially during this time and finding it difficult to find staff that is willing to work during this global pandemic. Our goal is to help businesses save money to pay their rent and other expenses while having the staff they need to run their businesses as things return to normal.” 

Qwick was built for uncertainty

While it’s impossible to know completely what the “new normal” will entail, it’s already become clear that recovery isn’t far away. Georgia, Tennessee, Montana, and Texas have already started to reopen dine-in restaurants and other retail stores, so it can be safe to assume that more states are soon to follow suit. What does this mean for the industry? That now is the time to start making a plan.

When considering the impending obstacles that fill business owners with fear and doubt, Qwick becomes more and more of an obvious solution.

Pain Points Qwick Solution
Uncertainty of business volume given heavy restrictions Order staff on-demand. Make adjustments on the fly
Difficulty hiring full-time staff members 83,000 vetted F&B professionals. $0 cost to hire full-time
Reducing cost is of the highest priority Reduced fees by 50%. No taxes, payroll, or benefits

Client Story: Tasty Creations Catering

Several of our partners have already begun taking advantage of the business recovery rate, including Tasty Creations Catering in Miami. The owner, Josefina Aluma, was forced to pause her operation when the stay at home orders began and had a large portion of her busy season events canceled or postponed. 

To ensure the success of her postponed events, Aluma turned to Qwick. Taking full advantage of the business recovery rate, she has already requested 70 banquet servers, 23 bartenders, and 1 line cook for events throughout the rest of the year,  and has plans of adding more as she brings in more demand. About the recovery, Aluma explained, “When I learned about the reduced rate I felt that Qwick really cares about its customers…That to me meant the world. I even began to cry because it will definitely help us get back on our feet. ”

Conclusion

At Qwick, we are committed to our mission of “changing the way people work.” By reducing our fees by 50% with our Business Recovery Rate, we are positioned as the most cost-efficient temporary staffing solution. We are incredibly excited about the opportunity to support as many businesses as possible in this storm of uncertainty, and in doing so make Qwick the “new normal” of hospitality staffing.

  1. So when yoi reduce the fees for employers by 50%, what does that mean for the worker? Less pay? Pay cuts?

    1. Hi Sherry, reducing the rate for the business does not impact the pay for the professional whatsoever. To help more businesses, we reduced the money we make by 50%. We want to help professionals make as much money as they can!
