How do you grow a company during a recession? Sell a commodity for which there’s always a demand. In the case of The Right One and Together Dating—one of the largest brick-and-mortar dating services with more than 60 locations in North America—that’s the possibility of love and romance.
At the end of last year, from October through December—the very height of the recession–The Right One and Together Dating experienced an 18 percent increase in new memberships from the same time period the year before. On top of that, during the last six months, The Right One and Together Dating have opened new locations in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Chicago and Schaumburg, Illinois and Austin and San Antonio, Texas.
“If I had a dollar for every news report or broadcast that started with ‘in these tough economic times’ I could retire tomorrow,” said Paul A. Falzone, CEO of The Right One and Together Dating. “That’s not to say there aren’t people and businesses out there struggling. We’ve had our share of challenges as well. But times like these call for a new plan of attack, not white flags. We’ve been able to grow because we kept looking for ways to run our business better.”
The Right One and Together Dating have plans for additional growth over the rest of 2009. That includes the opening four more locations and the recent hiring of Northeast Regional Director Jill Vandor.
“That’s another thing I’m quite proud of. We have been hiring continuously throughout this period when the recession began and there doesn’t seem to be a slowdown in sight. There are very few companies that can say that,” said Falzone.
As one of the world’s largest brick-and-mortar dating services, The Right One and Together Dating offers singles a viable option to online dating services, which could see you at your computer for weeks on end sifting through profiles—many of which might not be 100 percent truthful. The Right One and Together Dating screens clients thoroughly, including background check, to effectively and safely match singles who are more likely to be compatible.
“Our business really isn’t about the economic times as timing. Is this the right time in your life to find that special someone? Are you ready for that special relationship? If tough economic times mean people can take a step back and look at their lives to see what’s really important, then there is a silver lining to all this negative talk about the economy.”
