Covelli EnterprisesCLEVELAND, Ohio /eNewsChannels/ — Ohio Restaurant Recruiters, a restaurant manager recruiting firm in Ohio and Pennsylvania, announced this week that Covelli Enterprises, the largest franchisee of Panera Bread and O’Charley’s, has entrusted them with its restaurant management recruitment needs.

Covelli Enterprises has more than 200 Panera bakery-cafe concepts; 27 more are scheduled to open over the next 18 months.

Panera Bread has the single goal of making great bread that is readily available to consumers across America. Daily, it bakes more bread than any other bakery-cafe concept in the country.

“I’m excited to be working with Julie Ault, Covelli Enterprises’ recruiting and hiring coordinator,” Russell Don, owner, Ohio Restaurant Recruiters, says. “Julie takes her job of hiring restaurant managers very seriously and we plan to help them successfully move forward.”

Panera Bread offers an excellent career path.

“It has 45 hour/five-day scheduled work weeks and unlimited opportunities for advancement in a clean and grease-free environment, so recruiting for top-notch restaurant managers will be a welcomed challenge,” Don says.
