PHOENIX, March 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Qwick, the leading on-demand staffing platform for the food and beverage industry, reveals strong insights indicating that both hospitality businesses and service industry professionals are returning to normal operations at quick rates as businesses across the country reopen. Over the last three months, Qwick has seen a remarkable comeback from its hospitality Business Partners in all seven markets, and Qwick itself has experienced 115% month-over-month growth. According to insights from Qwick, 41% of its grocery, restaurant, country club, casino, hotel, and catering Business Partners that posted three months prior to COVID-19 related shutdowns have now come back online within a three-month period. Many of these businesses have even completely outsourced their staff to 1099 contractors due to fear of having to lay off full-time employees again.

Qwick has seen a remarkable comeback from its hospitality Business Partners in all seven markets.

As part of Qwick's mission to connect service industry Professionals with food and beverage shifts in real-time, they recently set out to find out the frequency of Professionals returning to work. After surveying 408 Qwick Professionals, the results show that, on a scale of 1-10, 76% of Professionals rated their comfortability of returning to work at a 6 or higher. The survey also found that access to more personal protective equipment would enhance Professionals' feelings of safety while working shifts (66%).

"Professionals and Business Partners are our priority at Qwick and we make it a mission for people to be able to provide for themselves and their families," said Qwick Co-Founder and CEO, Jamie Baxter. "With these insights, we were thrilled to learn that Business Partners are using Qwick to get their operations back running smoothly and Professionals are ready and excited to return to work. As more people seek ways to earn extra income and hospitality businesses get back on their feet, we will continue providing flexible work opportunities and looking for more ways to enhance the safety and well-being of our Professionals and Partners."

The food and beverage industry has been one of the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. As many service industry Professionals have lost their full-time jobs, Qwick is opening up new ways for Professionals to make money and get back on their feet. Professionals can get started with Qwick here and begin receiving shifts in four easy steps. Businesses in need of staff on-demand can also take advantage of Qwick's brand new program  Qwick Start — a program for businesses to try Qwick with no barrier to entry and pay a 0% markup.
