Fast-casual restaurant chain Maple Street Biscuit Company has implemented Landed’s mobile app to expedite employee hiring efforts for its existing as well as new restaurants.

Currently, Maple Street operates more than 40 restaurants in the US and has plans to open one to two new locations each month.

Maple Street talent acquisition specialist Kimberly Johnson said: “In the current hiring environment, it’s tough to stand out as an employer.

“We’ve put a lot of thought and work into updating our employer brand to convey our family-oriented values and attract candidates who are a cultural fit and are likely to stay for the long term.

“Landed has become a critical piece of the puzzle, helping us quickly identify the best candidates and get them in for an interview before they take another job.”

Landed offers an end-to-end recruiting platform that helps restaurants and hospitality employers hire candidates.

The platform uses artificial intelligence (AI) matching technology, which matches candidates with employers for whom they might be a good fit.

Landed said that its platform is used by companies, which include Blaze Pizza, Chick-fil-A and Panera, to fill open roles.

Maple Street is said to have already recruited more than 50 candidates through Landed.

Landed founder and CEO Vivian Wang said: “Employees have so many options – it’s really critical to respond quickly, to be their first interview and for employers to come out with a strong offer on the spot at the interview.

“Landed can facilitate all of that, helping employers improve their hire rates and improve retention, because they are finding and hiring candidates who are great fits for their positions.”
