HuHot Partners with JobApp Plus to Improve Hiring

Missoula, MT – January 14th, 2015 - HuHot Mongolian Grill has entered into a new partnership with Denver-based JobApp Plus. JobApp is a multi-faceted organization that assists companies with sourcing, recruiting, hiring, on-boarding and training employees. HuHot will initially test this partnership in their company locations (WI, IN, UT, CO) with plans to make this service available to their franchise ownership groups as well down the road.

"There isn't one thing that you do for your business that's more important than find, hire and train great people.” Said Jeff Martin, HuHot’s Chief Operating Officer that is driving this initiative. “JobApp's extensive success in this arena really caught our attention as we look to improve our ability to do just that. Their programs not only increase the applicant flow but their screening processes ensure that we will be looking at the best possible candidates to take care of our Guests. The icing on the cake is JobApp's ability to provide us with all of the pre-hire material through paperless and digital applications and their ability really save our restaurant managers time in their busy weeks," Martin said. The program will be in place and running in Q1 of 2015.

"We are aligned with HuHot’s corporate team and franchisees as they significantly expand their presence nationally." states John P. Raeder, Jr, CEO of JobApp, which is approaching 50,000 service industry locations utilizing the JobApp Social Recruiting and Talent Management software platform.

HuHot plans to expand their relationship with JobApp down the road to take advantage of their on-line training programs that are available. "They really will be in our staffing corner through every phase of the employment of our people. We can't wait to get started," concluded Martin.
