Pared Expands to DC, Connecting Gig Economy Workers with Restaurants
Pared, the platform matching restaurant and hospitality workers with businesses in need of staff to cover shifts, is expanding to DC. Pared is already live in New York and San Francisco, and it plans to expand to Philadelphia, Boston, and other locations in 2020.
The San Francisco-headquartered startup claims its service offers a prime deal for workers and businesses alike. It says it offers hospitality and food service workers higher wages and flexibility while offering businesses a ready workforce amid perennially high turnover in the industry.
“With our expansion to Washington D.C. and other major cities nationwide, we are helping even more restaurant operators solve their number one problem — staffing — while at the same time helping restaurant and hospitality staff achieve a much-needed better quality of life,” said Will Pacio, co-founder and CEO of Pared.
More than 30 Michelin-star restaurants use Pared. It verifies the work history and references of professionals seeking gigs on the platform.
