You have a lot on your plate—let Fountain serve the best job candidates right to you, right when you need them

With strained supply chains, increasing demand for in-app ordering, and contactless transactions, the food and beverage industry is feeling the pressure to meet demands and keep up with consumers while still running profitable operations.

Restaurant leaders need to evolve with industry demands and continue to fight for the attention of an hourly workforce with increasing opportunities for movement. Lowering barriers to entry on applications, improving time-to-hire, and streamlining the applicant experience are essential. Fulfilling both in-house and delivery staffing needs requires a robust and streamlined applicant tracking system that can keep up with a mobile-savvy clientele.


If you’re hiring in food and beverage, you’re facing:

A record-high quit rate of nearly 6% per month, which remained the same between 2021 and 2022

Nearly twice the number of job openings post-pandemic, compared to pre-pandemic, but nearly 20% reduction in hiring

A growing percentage of applicant unresponsiveness between 2021 and 2022, which means you’re working harder to get applicants to their interviews and hired

On average, fast food positions take an average of 27 days to hire. With Fountain, our customers can hire workers in 6 days.
