Monday, July 29, 2019 (Toronto, Canada) -Staffy, the leading online marketplace for connecting the hospitality industry with skilled contractors, announced its expansion plans for Houston, Texas earlier today.

“We are pleased to welcome Houston to the Staffy family,” said Peter Faist, Staffy Founder and CEO. “With a booming culinary scene, Clutch City is a natural fit for our platform. The growth of restaurants and bars increases the need for skilled front-of-house and back-of-house contractors – and that’s where Staffy comes in.”

First to market, Staffy’s platform is a modern solution to staffing challenges within the hospitality industry. For restaurants, bars, and catering companies, Staffy facilitates quick and efficient connections with skilled contractors, addressing immediate, short-term or long-term staffing needs.

“There can be high turnover across the hospitality industry – and it takes a lot of time and energy to fill gaps or recruit staff,” explained Mr. Faist. “With Staffy, restaurants and bars can book contractors for planned augmentations or last-minute sick fills with a touch of a button. Our on-demand service can typically have a skilled contractor onsite within 90 minutes.”

For renowned chef Grant van Gameren, owner of Toronto hot spots Bar Isabel & Bar Raval. Staffy has been a valuable addition. “Staffy gives us the confidence of knowing that we are covered. It’s not easy for someone new to just slip on the line and start working but their staff are sharp and adaptable. Just what you want when you are in need of someone last minute. ”

For skilled contractors, Staffy provides the opportunity to instantly pick up shifts tailored to their skills, experience, and schedule. And now with StaffyPay, contractors can qualify to receive their wages at the end of their shift.*

“The gig economy is expanding – meaning contractors are in demand. Staffy’s easy-to-use platform puts them in control. They decide when and where they work – and for how much.” Mr. Faist explained. “That said, Staffy’s standards are exceptionally high. Contractors are only added to our platform following an extensive vetting process – and they must maintain a high rating with our client roster to remain on our platform.”

With Houston, Staffy now has a foothold in five key North American markets including New York, Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.
