A new Jeremiah’s Italian ice franchise owner fully staffs his new restaurant in a day

“We have 30-50 people on the bench ready to work.”

Bob Carilli, Franchise Owner

Jeremiah’s Italian Ice is a national restaurant franchise that features authentic Italian Ice, Creamy Soft Ice Cream, & Gelati all served up in a vibrant, fun atmosphere.


A new franchise owner needed to hire the right candidates quickly to jumpstart a new restaurant opening. 


Behavioral Essentials partnered with Jeremiah’s to develop a benchmark for a front of house employee based on industry research, integrated the E3 assessment into their application process, and compared candidates’ data to the benchmark. 


Jeremiah’s was able to quickly assess a candidate’s behavioral fit for the role and interviewed and hired 22 people in 1 day. After filling their open positions, they also had a waitlist of 20+ applicants that were a good fit for the role according to the benchmark.
