Powering decentralized staffing in the Bay Area.
When Adam Jed approached Qwick about helping his upscale new American eatery and market, Bluestem, the assumption was that the restaurant needed what most of Qwick’s restaurant partners need: staff in a pinch.
In reality, Adam was looking for a different kind of partnership. Like in many major urban centers, the pandemic ravaged San Francisco’s dining scene. Diners were hesitant to eat out which left many hospitality workers out of jobs. In the wake of the rebound, Adam saw an opportunity to offer an antidote via Bluestem. Instead of hiring full time workers, he decided to build a decentralized staffing model, which would rely on many part time workers, offering more individuals a chance to get back on their feet while allowing Bluestem to operate more nimbly to meet market demands.
Qwick is proud to play an instrumental role in making this staffing program flow by connecting Bluestem to 30+ freelancers each month.
