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.

Our mission is to ensure a positive, best-in-class experience for both, job seekers and clients by going above and beyond their expectations. For clients, we aim to provide industry experts committed to creating a memorable guest experience. For job seekers, LGC provides temporary, temp-to-hire, and permanent options at a wide variety of hospitality companies.
