Food Service, Hospitality and Food & Beverage

Project Description

Torch Group works with national and international companies, brands and operators within the food service industry to place senior-level management, executive and C-level talent for mission-critical roles in the functional areas of sales, marketing, product management, operations, engineering, finance, human resources and general management.

We have extensive search work in the following sectors:

  • Food & Beverage Manufacturers
  • Food Service Equipment & Supply Manufacturers
  • Hospitality & Table Top Companies
  • Food Service Dealers & Distributors
  • Food Service Technology Companies
  • Restaurant Chains and Franchises
  • Commercial and Non-Commercial Operators

We are not your typical food service search firm. We’re different because we’ve sat in the chairs you are looking to fill. For more than 25 years, we’ve had an insider’s perspective to the needs of our clients. We’re different because we do not shuffle employees from one company to another. We have deep networks of fresh talent that we have successfully infused into our clients’ organizations from outside of the industry, with the exception of sales and national accounts where industry relationships are critical.

We’ve placed top executives in this industry for over 25 years. Recently completed searches include:

  • President for a leading back-of-the-house food service equipment manufacturing company focused on commercial fans and ventilation equipment
  • President, Foodservice Distributorship, the largest broadline distributor in the Leeward Islands
  • Vice President, Sales for a global software & technology leader selling into the food service equipment channel including manufacturers and dealers
  • Vice President, Engineering for an industry leader in design, research, and delivering new ideas for frying
  • Executive Director of Foodservices for one of the largest public school districts in the country, serving 57,000 meals a day
