How Patrick Properties Hospitality Group Used Gigpro to Staff for the Busy Event Season

Patrick Properties venues: American Theater, The River House, William Aiken House, and Lowndes Grove are wedding venues and needs caterers, servers, bartenders, carving stations, and other vendors to execute events.

Charleston, S.C. is among the country’s most popular destinations for weddings and events. Patrick Properties owns and operates multiple event venues in downtown Charleston, as well as a popular restaurant in historic downtown. While busy throughout the year, spring and fall event seasons see a spike in events requiring additional staffing. 

Patrick Properties signed up for Gigpro in early September of 2021, just ahead of a very busy fall wedding season. During this season, PPH needed additional staff to supplement their full-time event staff members, particularly event servers and bartenders. 

Since September 2021, PPH has posted 1,165 gigs to cover shifts at the four event venues and the restaurant; the average hourly wage for PPH gigs is $20. The business contact appreciates that Gigpro is a user-friendly platform that is a trustworthy platform for quickly posting shifts across the different venues and restaurant. Additionally, they have established a relationship with a large group of reputable Pros on the platform that consistently pick up their posted shifts.
