About Pared

It hasn't been an easy year for restaurants. But we've been working on tools to help rebuild and we're only just getting started.

On a mission to make restaurant life easier, we established Pared as a way for businesses to overcome persistent staffing challenges and easily find vetted culinary professionals quickly.

Pared is for food service businesses

We match pre-screened, skilled candidates from our extraordinary network of hospitality professionals in your area to your immediate or long-term staffing needs.

Pared is for food service professionals

Designed to make it easier to manage your business and team, Pared was conceived by chefs and restaurant owners who know exactly what you’re looking for.

Our story

Throughout his successful culinary career — starting out as a cook, mopping floors and chopping carrots at Per Se in New York through to running all of IT for Thomas Keller Restaurant Group — Will Pacio recognized staffing challenges were an industry-wide phenomenon, both for businesses and workers.

One day, after opening Spice Kit, a chain of casual restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area, Will found himself making sandwiches on the line because someone had just quit and left them short-staffed. Frustrated at having to drop everything to fill a critical gap, Will thought to himself, "I wish there was an app that could help me easily find someone with the skills and experience to fill this shift." 

ABOUT US

Will reached out to his friend, Dave Lu, whose passion for restaurants and two decades in the technology industry made him the perfect partner for a new hospitality staffing venture. Together, Dave and Will started Pared with the mission to make restaurant life easier for everyone in the hospitality industry.
