Our Story

LGC Hospitality is the premier hospitality staffing company in the United States, founded in 2003 in Indianapolis. George Lessmeister, CEO and founder, realized there was an opportunity to create a staffing service that provided qualified, vetted candidates for the hospitality industry. He thought if he applied the same detailed vetting process used by accounting and finance staffing, he could supply a more qualified candidate. By spending time fostering relationships with job seekers and developing insight into what they wanted in employment, candidates would feel motivated to work hard not only for the client, but for LGC. 15 years later LGC operates in 35 cities across the country, continuing to expand rapidly from coast to coast. We staff hospitality events ranging from major sporting events, to fine dining and everything in between. We were built with dedication, commitment, and hard work, which is the foundation of our organization today.

In May 2019, we launched LGC Now — a staffing engagement tool that provides LGC employees an opportunity to secure flexible employment based upon their schedule, while providing clients with the chance to obtain qualified talent when they need it, all through a mobile marketplace.

LGC’s team is built by diverse individuals who are passionate about developing long-lasting relationships between clients and candidates. We strive to create an inclusive work environment within our local communities allowing for more professional connections, economic empowerment, and respect for all. Together we are changing the staffing industry; one placement at a time.

Fulfilling the need is our mission. We are bridging the gap by matching the best possible clients and candidates together, ensuring a positive partnership, as LGC continues to aim for excellence in our commitment to diversitychange, and growth.
