As competition for sales of specialty food, beverage, wares, and services to hospitality businesses increases, employers are seeking subject matter experts (SME’s) to join the sales force. If someone has the desire to be great in sales, they can be trained and developed into a superior sales professional. However, speaking the fluent language of the target audience is a completely different skill set.

SHS works with companies desiring to hire polished professionals with experience in culinary or hospitality management because they can relate to their customers. Who better to discuss food products with a Chef than an experienced Chef? For system or software sales, Experienced Dining Room Managers can “talk the talk” with their peers and colleagues much better than a technician can.

Because we have the industry relationships, we have access to the top performers in their fields - the candidates best suited for these types of sales roles. We can confidentially present your opportunity to industry professionals, and present those candidates who have the motivation to segue out of operations and into sales. We call this a “cross-vertical placement.”
