Qwick Joins International Caterers Association as Dedicated Supporter

PHOENIX, June 17, 2019 -- ​Phoenix-based​ ​Qwick​ has become a one-star sponsor of the ​International Caterers Association​ (ICA), an organization dedicated to providing education, mentoring, and resources for professional caterers and promoting the profession of catering to clients, industry members, vendors and the public.

Qwick is an on-demand staffing platform focused on the food and beverage industry that recently unveiled the Qwick Professionals App, which is the fast-growing company’s  first mobile app for iPhone and Android offering hospitality shifts in real-time for food and beverage professionals and available on the Google Play store and Apple App store. 

Through this hospitality technology, Qwick users are matched with shifts in real-time based on qualifications and experience and have the flexibility to choose shifts offered by top-rated catering companies, sports stadiums, conference centers, golf courses, event venues and restaurants at their fingertips. Offering a first-rate experience for staff and hiring managers alike, Qwick expedites the candidate searching, interviewing, hiring, and payroll processes for caterers. Leveraging technology, Qwick helps caterers find seasonal staff or quality part-time staff and overcome challenges including losing potential candidates to competitors, understaffing, turnover and last-minute cancellations.

Initially co-founded in 2018 by Jamie Baxter, CEO, Blaine Light, COO, and Chris Loeffler, company advisor, as a web-based app before expanding with smartphone capabilities, the Qwick mobile app provides working professionals the freedom to control their own schedules by choosing for whom, when and where they want to work.

“Qwick is committed to providing the best staffing solution for caterers across the industry with a single platform to hire and manage top-quality food and beverage professionals efficiently, ” said co-founder and CEO, Jamie Baxter. “Our focus to offer the best practices and tools to overpower all staffing challenges is closely aligned with those of the International Caterers Association and we look forward to beginning our partnership with the organization to further support its mission of supporting those in the catering industry.” 

Qwick is currently available in four U.S. cities: Phoenix, Tucson, San Diego and Dallas with rapid expansion plans to be available in nearly 10  U.S. markets by the end of 2019. Since its launch, more than 15,000 reliable and
high-quality food and beverage professionals with a proven average star rating of 4.8 and over 300 hospitality business partners have utilized the platform, Qwick is the best solution for hospitality businesses to fill shifts with its 98 percent shift fill rate and increases cost effectiveness which is 20 to 30 percent less than traditional staffing agencies.
