Ron spent time getting to know me over a few years at industry events, conferences, etc. It always surprised me how much he remembered when he would ask questions about what I wanted to do in the future. When Ron was retained by the MOD team to find someone to lead MOD Pizza’s partnering team, he called me. It was easy to take the call since we already knew each other. Long story short, Ron matched me up perfectly to not only a dream job but a profound shift in my career. I tell him every time I see him that that one phone call changed my life! Super grateful to you, Ron, for believing in me and connecting me with this incredible company.

Ron Stockman has a very high level of integrity and professionalism and a thorough knowledge and understanding of the restaurant and franchising industry. I see highly suitable candidates and National Restaurant Search has become my firm of choice to source Managing Partners as we expand our portfolio.

National Restaurant Search is the only place I call when I need help filling a position. I have known John Chitvanni for almost twenty years, and have always found him to be responsive to my needs, professional in his approach, and completely confidential. He is a wealth of information about our industry, so I use him as a sounding board when I need an outside perspective. There is no doubt I will continue to use John and National Restaurant Search for my recruiting needs.

Ron is a GREAT recruiter. I have yet to have an issue with a candidate I have hired that Ron has brought to the table. He takes the time to understand the company and need— and then brings the right person to the table. I will continue to use Ron when the need arises.

Marc Buehler

Ron and I worked together on a strategic analysis for the board of a restaurant chain, examining competitive positioning, strength of management, and brand opportunities. I was impressed with his thorough, thoughtful approach and the care he took to meet and exceed the expectations of the board.
