Resource for Finding More Restaurant Labor

Published on: 15th December, 2021

The U.S. and most of the world are experiencing a major labor shortage, making restaurant owners operate in fear mode, constantly worrying about restaurant staffing. In this episode of Restaurant Prosperity Formula, I’m talking with Ryan James, owner of Mother’s Cantina in Ocean City, Maryland, which includes two full-service TexMex restaurant locations, a commissary kitchen, a Shopify store and a presence on Amazon selling tortillas. He has extensive experience finding staffing solutions for his Ocean City, Maryland restaurants because he has a special challenge being in a resort town. Ocean City’s winter population is about 8,000 people but, in the summer, it explodes to about 400,000. You can only imagine how hard it is to staff for those wild fluctuations in business. Listen in on our conversation where Ryan shares the ins and outs of recruiting and utilizing J-1 workers to make it through the summer months and how you can use this solution to staff your restaurant almost year-round.

Some of the companies Ryan suggests looking into:

·     InterExchange

·     United Work and Travel

·     J1 Ireland

·     Worldwide Cultural Exchange (WWCE)
