Accolades from Hospitality Employers

Hear from some of our hospitality partners in their own words:

Kirk Bangstad, Owner, Minocqua Brewing Company

Horizon Hospitality is a quality recruitment firm for the hospitality industry. They found us a chef, sous chef and a brewmaster that has vastly improved the quality of my brewpub. I recommend them wholeheartedly.

Andy Yeager, Chief Operating Officer, Tapco Restaurant Group

Working with Horizon has ended our search for a VP of Human Resources as a small, yet growing brand. At every turn, we were presented great candidates, transparent communication from our recruiter, and excellent hiring results. We will continue to utilize Horizon’s expertise as we scale, and recognize their value to our growing organization.

Brent McLean, Partner, Northview Hotel Group

Horizon took the time to understand our company and the requirements for our search. Although we initially intended to fill one position, we were able to hire two outstanding candidates who are tremendous adds to our team. I highly recommend their services.

Tara Simecek, Avanti Senior Living

The recruiters listened, were thorough, presented quality candidates and were extremely prompt in scheduling and follow up. Not to mention fun to work with!

Alex Edwards, Director of Operations/Owner, Nothing Bundt Cakes

We were pleased with the quality of candidates produced and the entire process as a whole. The recruiter did excellent work and we were impressed by your company. The recruiter’s communication skills and professionalism were very apparent, and we really enjoyed his sincerity. We believe that the candidate we hired is going to be a great fit for us, and I do not believe we would have found him without Horizon’s help!

Whitney Bauer, Recruiting Manger, Iowa 80 Group/CAT Scale

This search required many accommodations with scheduling and Horizon Hospitality was very quick in contacting the candidates to make the necessary arrangements. Our VP of Restaurants held the final interview with a candidate presented by Horizon and said that it was the best interview he has had in the last five years. Our newly hired employee begins work with us at the end of the month. Thank you Horizon Hospitality for a job very well done!

Rebecca Berkshire, Director of Operations, Mojo Fuco Restaurant Group

I was happy that Horizon could pull such a wide range of qualified candidates in such a short turn around time, even over a holiday weekend. We were provided with enough candidates to be selective with our interview choices and were able to interview enough potential candidates to make a strategic hire that we are excited to begin working with.

Steve Miller, Director of Operations, Lighthouse Properties

I was very pleased from start to finish. The whole process was seamless. From my first conversation with Horizon, they listened to what we were looking for in our applicant. They asked great questions to clarify to make sure they understood what qualities we wanted in an applicant. We talked about the interviewing and selection process while not typical, Horizon did a great job in communicating with three of us on the candidates. They followed up after we interviewed candidates to help fine tune his selection process. I enjoyed working with Horizon and will reach out to them next time we have an open position.

Katelin Smith, Senior HR Manager, SkyVenture LLC / iFLY Holdings

Horizon Hospitality has been a huge help for our company, as we are growing at a rapid pace and need to find highly qualified candidates very quickly. We made a call out to Horizon and within a couple of days, they were working on our roles and sending us great candidates! We’ve had great success with them thus far and look forward to our continued working relationship.

Mike Zigler, General Manager, Spring Run Golf Club

We had a really hard time finding qualified candidates during our most recent search, and turned to Horizon in an attempt to speed up the process. They somehow managed to get several quality prospects through their connections in this area (SWFL). It didn’t take long to identify the person we wanted to hire and we are very pleased with the results!
